Except as provided in subsection (b) or (c) of this Code section, the answer must be filed with the court issuing the summons not sooner than 30 days and not later than 45 days after the service of the summons and must be accompanied by the money or other property subject to garnishment. Upon the affidavit and summons being delivered to the sheriff, marshal, constable, or like officer of the court issuing the summons, it shall be his duty to serve the summons of garnishment upon the person to whom it is directed and to make his entry of service upon the affidavit and return the affidavit to the court. The summons of garnishment shall state that, if the garnishee fails to answer the summons, a judgment by default will be entered against the garnishee for the amount claimed by plaintiff against the defendant.

(b) Under circumstances where the defendant has been an employee of the garnishee, and if the defendant is no longer employed by the garnishee, and if the garnishee has no money or property of the defendant subject to garnishment, the garnishee may immediately file an answer; however, such answer shall be filed not later than 45 days after the service of the summons.
