Pursuant to Virginia Code ยง8.01-511, all Garnishment filings require an accounting that establishes the balance due on the judgment calculated through the Return Date, including principal awarded, an itemization of any interest claimed (including the interest rate and date from which interest accrues), the date and amount of each payment received, as well as a showing of how the payments are credited, plus costs (including an itemization of those accrued post judgment) and attorney's fees. The Accounting should be in the nature of a running balance, enabling the judgment debtor to verify (1) that interest amounts and calculations match what was awarded by the Court, (2) that all payments made have been deducted in a lawful manner and (3) that all claimed post judgment costs are permitted by law. The reverse side of the Suggestion form (DC-450) contains an accounting worksheet, which may be used, or a separate spreadsheet may be submitted. Effective March 2, 2015, any Garnishment filed in the General District Court without the required accounting will be returned.
