In the majority of US states most bank accounts even those that

are joint can be levied by a judgment creditor. The determining

factor is how the account is established under the existing state

laws. Joint marital accounts in states that are held in Tenancy By

The Entirety cannot be levied when only one spouse is the

debtor.
