I just received the letter to attend court for "Garnishee Order to Show Cause". May I know what will happen if I don't show up at the court? I got this letter because I owed some credit cards payment and since 2 years ago I stopped payment due to financial problem.

I'm a divorcee with 2 children and last year I just had a surgery to remove a brain tumor. Now, I'm having seizures, leg weakness, short and long term memory loss.

Where is the attached Perintah? ( as mentioned in the letter )

If you do not attend court which is today ( 7/12/2017 ) the Judge will order that the balance amount in your Public Bank account be taken ( garnished ) and be given to UOB.
But since you say that the balance left in your Public Bank account is very low, then no problem lah.

Take care.

Dear vkpc, thanks for your help and explanation. By the way, I did not go to the court.

Also, is it from now onward I cannot use my Public Bank account for any transactions?

Currently your Public Bank account is frozen until the garnishment process is completed.
After the garnishment process is completed, you may be able to use the account again.
Please check with Public Bank officer on when your account will be unfrozen and let us know about it.
If you use the account, keep the amount of funds low in the account in case it gets garnished again.
