812.39 Payment to creditor.


(1) Between 5 and 10 business days after the payday of each pay period in which the debtor's earnings are subject to the earnings garnishment, the garnishee shall pay the creditor that portion of the debtor's nonexempt disposable earnings to which the creditor is entitled.


(2) Court-ordered assignments of the debtor's earnings for support or maintenance under ch. 767, regardless of the date the garnishee first receives notice of the assignment, take priority over an earnings garnishment under this subchapter. If the debtor's earnings are subject to assignment under s. 767.75, the creditor shall not be entitled to an amount greater than 25% of the debtor's disposable earnings less the amount assigned under s. 767.75.


(3) The garnishee shall provide written notice to the debtor of any amounts paid to a creditor under this subchapter, at the time that the debtor's earnings are paid to the creditor.
