Legal Question in Credit and Debt Law in Virginia

Banking account garnishment

A credit agency took me to court for an unpaid bill. They were adwarded a judgement. Now, My checking and savings account has a garnishment on them. I can not pay anyother bills because of this. Do they have the right to garnish my account? Do they have to notify me before doing so? Shouldn't they garnish my wages being that i am in the military?
