(from Ch. 110, par. 12-707)
Duties of garnishee.
(a) To the extent of the amount due upon the judgment and costs, the
garnishee shall hold, subject to the order of the court any non-exempt
indebtedness or other non-exempt property in his or her possession, custody
or control belonging to the judgment debtor or in which the
judgment debtor has any interest. The judgment or balance due thereon becomes
a lien on the indebtedness and other property held by the
garnishee at the time of the service of garnishment summons and remains
a lien thereon pending the garnishment proceeding.
(b) The garnishee shall file, on or before the return date, or
within the further time that the court for cause may allow, a written
answer under oath to the interrogatories, setting forth as of the date
of service of the garnishment summons any indebtedness due or to
become due to the judgment debtor and any other property in his, her or its
possession, custody or control belonging to the judgment debtor or in which
the judgment debtor has an interest. The garnishee shall mail, by first class
mail, a copy of the answer to the judgment creditor or its attorney and to the
judgment debtor at the address specified in the affidavit filed under Section
12-701 of this Act, or at any other address or location of the judgment debtor
known to the garnishee, and shall certify in the answer that it was so mailed
to the judgment debtor.
