A judgment creditor can levy a bank account for the entire amount granted by the judgment. This means if the amount equals or exceeds the balance of the account all the funds can be seized. The rules for enforcement of a bank account levy will vary throughout US states, the judgment debtor should seek legal advice to determine his or her legal options in such matters.
