§3927. Deposit to cover fee of employer's attorney; costs; return of deposit

Whenever a plaintiff suing out a writ of garnishment shall apply to the court for the issuance of such writ, the plaintiff shall deposit with the clerk of court the sum of fifteen dollars, as a fee for the attorney for the employer who answers such interrogatories. This sum may be charged and collected as other costs. If no answer is filed by the garnishee, within the time provided by law, the attorney's fee so deposited shall be returned to the seizing creditor. If the court in its discretion should rule that no fee should be charged to the costs by such attorney for the employer, the fee shall likewise be returned to the seizing creditor. If the court should rule that a fee greater than fifteen dollars should be assessed, the court may fix the amount of such fee, which shall be charged to the costs of the suit.
