if a judgment has been entered against you in court by the

collector they can freeze your bank account. If your CS is direct

deposited it will NOT STOP THE FREEZE/SEIZURE. You then have to go

to court and file paperwork and show that the money in your account

is from child support. CHILD SUPPORT money is exempt from seizure

but the bank follows the court order. (Same for SSI,SSDI)

If it is in a bank account it can be seized until you file the

exemption.

Best now to have these monies placed on a sort of credit card

that states are now offering in place of direct deposit.
