If you were taken to court and a judgement was made against you, you should have been been offered or arranged a payment plan.  As long as you honor those agreements to the letter of the law, you will not see a garnishment of your wages.  However, if you merely walked out and made no arrangements, they will request the garnishment with the court and one day, by complete surprise, you pay check will be substantially reduced.   While you may need to research the current law in Indiana, they can take 25% of your take home pay.  (After taxes/health.)   They won't take anything that puts you under 217.50 per week.  (30 times the federal minimum wage.)
