Pursuant to this section, an attorney for a judgment creditor may execute on funds retained by a garnishee under a garnishment summons served pursuant to chapter 571. No more than $10,000 may be recovered by a single execution levy pursuant to this section. When levying upon money or earnings being retained by a garnishee pursuant to a garnishment summons, the attorney shall serve a copy of the writ of execution upon the garnishee by registered or certified mail, or by personal service. Along with a copy of the writ of execution, the attorney shall serve upon the garnishee a notice of levy on garnishee that must be substantially in the form set forth below. If the judgment creditor paid the garnishee the fee required by chapter 571, no additional fee must be paid to the garnishee for the levy. The notice of levy on garnishee may not be served until the judgment debtor's right to claim an exemption has expired under chapter 571.
