If the garnishee order was made ito a maintenance court order you will need to approach the court to set aside the existing maintenance order.

Firstly you need to get the maintenance order amended and then the garnishee order. For as long as the order is in place, then the garnishee will remain in force.

The garnishee is effectively implementation of the original order and could only have brought about because of non payment by you.

Therefore you have to show that the need for the original order no longer exists. This should be simple if what you say is true. The adjustment of the original order should be by agreement.

Go to your local maintenance office / magistrates court.
