Arizona Garnishments

Q: In the state of Arizona can a business account be garnished from multiple member LLC’s with out a judgement against the LLC?

A: A creditor could send a garnishment to the LLC, demanding that any amounts the LLC would otherwise pay to the debtor must be sent to the creditor. In other words, the creditor might be able to get to money the LLC owes to one of its owners or employees. But unless there’s a judgment against the LLC, the creditor could not garnish the LLC’s money. Garnishment laws can be tricky, though, and your questions doesn’t have a lot of details. You will probably want to consult with a lawyer before making any decisions related to garnishment.
