45. Any creditor of a public officer or employee may, however, before taking a suit or causing a notice of execution providing for the seizure in the hands of a third person to be filed, produce an affidavit of his claim or a copy of judgment at the department or agency in which such public officer or employee receives his salary.
If the public officer or employee acknowledges himself to be indebted in the sum demanded, and, in writing, authorizes the payment thereof out of the portion of his salary liable to seizure, the incumbent minister or deputy minister of such department or chief executive officer of such agency shall pay the creditor, according to the authorization, on each pay day.
If several creditors present themselves at the same time, they shall be paid concurrently in proportion to their respective claims.
