Wage garnishments in Michigan used to have a 182 day expiration date regardless of whether the judgment was paid in full. Creditors had to submit a new request to the court and pay a new fee in order to have a new periodic garnishment issued. Effective September 30, 2015, MCR 3.101 provides that wage and other periodic garnishments will remain in effect until the judgment is paid in full. Individuals facing wage garnishment will still have options for stopping the garnishment such as bankruptcy and installment plans.
