No they do not close your Checking or Savings account
Yes you can change a joint bank account before a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You should have your finances in order before you file a bankruptcy.
You can open a bank account immediately after filing for bankruptcy. There really is no waiting period.
Yes, if the bank holding the account allows it. When a person files for bankruptcy, depending on the type of bankruptcy you filed.
A collection agency, or any party, can only freeze your bank account IF they have sued your first and won a judgment against you. If you file for bankruptcy, it will not immediately release the levy on the account. The court that rendered the judgment must be notified of the bankruptcy filing, as well as the judgment creditor. The account could remain frozen until the outcome of your bankruptcy. If your bankruptcy, and the judgment debt is discharged, then the bank account must be released. It is possible to release a levy before discharge, but it will usually require the bankruptcy attorney to do it.
Only the State and Federal government institutions have the right to levy your bank account directly. Banks can take your paycheck to cover insufficient funds in the check-owner's bank account (with that bank) but cannot do so just because the owner of the account is filing for bankruptcy.
This is why your claim bankruptcy. The automatic stay will stop judgment holders from issuing a levy on goods and chattels. Simply put, no. They can not levy an account from a debtor that is protected under the bankruptcy code.
no because you have no money idiot
yes...if the bank agrees.
A bank account can usually only be held for thirty days from the time it is secured. The joint account holder should contact the bankruptcy trustee to learn what is necessary to have their percentage of the funds returned.

Was that debt including in bankruptcy.
The bank should not have your car title if it is paid off. If you declared bankruptcy and it was discharged, your bank credit card account should be dismissed.
You do not have to justify using money in your bank account unless you are in the middle of a bankruptcy and someone is overseeing what you are doing. There are few occasions where you have to divulge this type of information.
If you have filed for bankruptcy as an individual, rather than as a couple, then you are only filing on your personal debts. Following this logic, only those funds that are yours (so your share of the bank account, if that is possible) will be "up for grabs." Your bankruptcy status should not have an effect on your partner.
If they are only an authorized signer then the bank account will not be touched. If they are listed on the account as a user, it could be frozen at any time.
If creditors believe the person is trying to remove funds from accounts to keep them from bankruptcy proceedings; creditors can petition the court to freeze all accounts/assets. A bank cannot arbitraily seize account funds unless the depositer has a loan with the bank which includes a set off provision. Even then the bankruptcy trustee can request the funds be returned and included as assets in the bankruptcy.
No, once a bankruptcy is filed an automatic "stay" is in place, and creditors cannot pursue any collection action. Even outside of bankruptcy, a creditor cannot arbitrarily garnish a debtor's bank account. The creditor needs to file and win a lawsuit, be granted a judgment and then enforce the judgment as a bank account garnishment.
If you have a savings account at a bank, then it is a bank account. If you have it in another kind of institution, such as a Credit Union or Savings and Loan, then it is not a bank account, although some people use the term "bank account" loosely and apply it to any savings account anywhere.
I filed a bankruptcy because I was injured and could not work. When I had nearly depleted my savings I paid my utility bills for the next year, leaving enough for food and gasoline up to when I thought I would be well enough to work (I was guessing a year). Then I closed my bank account and used only cash. I landed a job the day after the bankruptcy was awarded so I needed to open a bank account immediately (cashing checks without your own account is very expensive). I had no trouble getting an account at a local credit union. I am hard-pressed to understand why acquiring a bank account would be associated with a bankruptcy, money is money.
Not enough information is disclosed about the situation in order to answer. If you have an attorney assisting you in your bankruptcy ask them.
I don't have a definitive answer, but it has been my experience that normally you can keep an account in a bank after filing bankruptcy on their credit card. I have found some small, local banks though (usually credit unions) that do require people to close their account(s) if they file bankruptcy on the bank. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person.
Why are you filing bankruptcy if you have money in the bank? You are entitled to exemptions, which may include some money in a bank account. The amount you may exempt will depend on whether your state has its own exemptions or allows you to use the federal exemptions.
After declaring bankruptcy it is smart to wait six months before obtaining a new account. If a trustee finds that you have XXXX amount of dollars in bank B after closing an account at bank A it will look as if you tried to defraud the bankruptcy law. For chapter 7 wait until discharge for chapter 13 as long as you are making timely payments it doesn't matter.
