You get something called an “income execution”. Here in the state of NY, it’s served on the “debtor’s employer” who’ll deduct a set amount of no more than 10% of the employees gross wages, subject to limitations.
At one point, I got 2 or 3 employees of mine whose paychecks are garnished, one of them for child support.
You’ll have to first get a judgement before you can do this. After you get a judgment, and fail to collect it, in small claims, in NY, there’s a form one can print off the net, and follow the directions for the “income execution”.
But the first IMPORTANT thing is you have to know where this person works, and where are his assets. If you have to obtain this information, you get it via an “Information subpeona” directly from the debtor.
But, you’ll have to know where he currently resides to send the subpeona.
