is trying to affect is (or may be) owed to someone other than the Debtor,
give the reasons for your belief and the name and address of that other
person.



6.        If you have already received another Garnishee Summons
regarding the same obligation and that Garnishee Summons is still in
effect, let the Clerk's Office know in writing and give the QB Action
Number of the other Garnishee Summons.  The QB Action Number is on the
upper right of the back of the Garnishee Summons.



7.        Where the Garnishee Summons seeks to affect a joint

with the Debtor, or

obligation will become payable.

Response must set out

          (a)  the amount that is now payable, and

          (b)  the amount that you are paying to the Clerk.



Garnishee Summons (which attaches employment earnings)

with a $25 compensation fee, you must do the following:



1.        Serve a copy of the Garnishee Summons on the Debtor (personally
or by ordinary mail).

the Debtor's employment earnings and that Garnishee Summons is still in
effect, let the Clerk's Office know in writing and give the QB Action
Number of the other Garnishee Summons.  The QB Action Number is on the
upper right of the back of the Garnishee Summons.



At the end of the Debtor's last pay period for each month during which the
Garnishee Summons is in effect, you must deliver to the Clerk a written
statement setting out:



1.        the Debtor's total employment earnings for the pay periods that
ended during the month,

2.        the amounts deducted from total earnings to calculate the
Debtor's net pay for the month, and

3.        the number of the Debtor's dependants.

together:

1.        the Debtor's minimum exemption, and

2.        half the amount by which the Debtor's net pay exceeds this
minimum exemption.



For a Debtor with no dependants, the minimum employment earnings exemption
is $800 and the maximum is $2400.  The minimum and maximum employment
earnings exemption increases by $200 for each dependant.

1.        a person identified as a dependant by Court Order,

3.        any child of the Debtor under 18 who lives with the Debtor, or

4.        any relative of the Debtor (or of the Debtor's spouse/adult
interdependent partner) who lives with the Debtor and, because of mental or
physical infirmity, depends financially on the Debtor.



You are entitled to rely on, and act in accordance with, the Debtor's
written statement of the number of dependants he or she has.



You can get a worksheet from the Clerk's Office to help you calculate the
Debtor's employment earnings exemption.



When employment earnings are garnished for alimony or maintenance,
Maintenance Enforcement Act employment exemptions apply.  Refer to
Maintenance Enforcement Regulation for more information.



If you pay the Debtor's salary/wage more often than monthly, you can pay
the Clerk of the Court at the end of each pay period instead of at the end
of each month.
In this case, calculate the minimum and maximum employment exemption for
each pay period as follows:



1.        multiply the monthly exemption by the number of days in the pay
period, and 

2.        divide this number by 30.
