No. The custodial parent or state child support agency would need to file suit, obtain a judgment and then use the judgment to levy the obligated parent's bank account, or the account holder would need to voluntarily allow withdrawal of funds. A judgment is not necessary for an obligated parent's tax refund (state or federal) to be seized for back child support.
