60-740. Payment of earnings to judgment debtors and creditors. This section must apply if the garnishment is to attach earnings of the judgment debtor. If no reply is made to the answer of garnishee within 14 days following the date the garnishee has completed the answer, the garnishee must promptly thereafter pay the earnings withheld as indicated on the answer to all judgment creditors designated on the answer in the amount due each as indicated on the answer, and thereafter continue to pay the earnings withheld as they are withheld, unless the garnishee receives prior to such payment an order of the court to the contrary. If any judgment creditor receives more than they are entitled to, that judgment creditor must promptly return the excess amount to the garnishee for distribution pro-rata to the other judgment creditors designated on the answer, or if no such other judgment creditors are designated, the garnishee must promptly pay the excess amount to the judgment debtor.
