Wage garnishment is one of the most misunderstood collection practices in Tennessee. The procedure is commonly used by parties who have obtained a court judgment for money to collect the amount due from the person who owes the money, i.e., the judgment debtor. Filing a bankruptcy petition is usually the most effective way to stop garnishment.

A compromise is provided by provisions in the Bankruptcy Code directed at small business bankruptcies - the so-called "small business case."
