18-4-82. Contents of answer of garnishee

Within the time prescribed by Code Section 18-4-62, the garnishee shall file his answer describing what money or other property is subject to garnishment under Code Section 18-4-20. If the garnishee owes the defendant any sum for wages, the answer shall also state specifically when the wages were earned by defendant and whether they were earned as daily, weekly, or monthly wages. If the garnishee has been served with summons in more than one garnishment case involving the same defendant, the garnishee shall state in each answer that the money or other property is being delivered to the court subject to the claims of all the cases and shall give the numbers of all such cases in each answer. If the garnishee shall be unable to answer as provided for in this Code section, his inability shall appear in his answer, together with all the facts plainly, fully, and distinctly set forth, so as to enable the court to give judgment thereon.
