If you are the not named on the judgment levy, you must file a petition with the court where the judgment was granted to have the confiscated funds belonging to you returned. The court will require proof of what portion of the funds in the account were yours. If the account was held jointly by a married couple in a community property state the total amount of the account if not considered exempt (SS benefits, public assistance, private pensions and disability benefits) is subject to seizure by the judgment creditor even when only one spouse is the judgment debtor.
