Bank accounts are not immediately released (unfrozen) upon the granting of a dismissal of the levy. The bank has a specified amount of time to release the funds that begins when the person in charge of such actions receives the court order. Depending upon the state in which the bank account is located it can take up to 30 days for the use of the funds to be reactivated.
