Garnishment Packets:

In the past, we have made accommodations for incomplete garnishment packets. The follow up phone calls, production of copies and other activities associated with processing incomplete packets has impacted our ability to quickly process garnishments for all of our clients. To help us improve our service, we will now require that packets be complete. If they are incomplete, they will be immediately sent back. The following is a list of items that must be included in garnishment packets:

· Please insure that the service address is located within Carson City. Mailing addresses do not insure actual garnishee (employer) location. Carson City addresses with the following zip codes may actually be located in other jurisdictions:
89706 (could be Lyon County)

· Letter of Instruction to the Sheriff, which must include the defendant’s last known address.

· Original, electronic filing copy or Certified Copy of Writ of Execution plus 3 copies.

· Service fee check in the correct amount, made payable to the Carson City Sheriff’s Office. For correct service fee information, please see Cost/Fee Schedule.

· $5.00 check made payable to the garnishee (employer) or bank. For those going to the State of Nevada, the check must be made payable to State of Nevada.

· Pursuant to Nevada Revised Statutes, no Social Security Number may be listed on any documents, including the Letter of Instruction.

· Notice of Execution must be included with the Writ.
