Pursuant to this section, an attorney for a judgment creditor may execute on funds retained

$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

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
