Well, yes its possible and they have full rights to find out. I probably don't want to know why you're asking! A bank statement comes each month. Who gets that? That statement either includes the cancelled checks or photocopies of the checks. If your bank offers banking by phone, the other person on the account can listen to the check numbers and amounts. If they wanted to find out more (like who a check was written to) they could just call the bank.

The account holder must petition the court to have the levy (garnishment) lifted. This is only possible if the original judgment writ is invalid.

Can a bank be held responsible if it allowed money to be transferred from a dual signature checking account into a single signature checking account by only one person on the dual signature account?

No. The bank is not responsible or liable if such an incident happens. A joint account is one that can be fully operated by either of the two people who hold a joint account. So if one party withdraws cash or makes a funds transfer, it is assumed that the other party has no objections towards it. So the bank wouldn't be liable if one party does it against the wish of the other party who holds the account jointly.

If you had a joint checking account with your boyfriend but have removed yourself from it is it legal for him to still use the checks with your name on them?

Yes. The name/names on a check simply means they are legally authorized to sign it. * The names on the checks are really not the issue. When a checking account is jointly held one of the holder's cannot simply take their name off the account. The account has to be closed and each party will be required to open a new account in whatever status they choose. It would be in the best interest of the person wishing to be excluded from financial responsibility to contact the bank to make certain they have been relieved of all responsibility concerning the account. The UCC states that only the signer of a check is responsible. However, not closing the account properly can create any number of problems for one or both account holders.

Can a creditor seize joint bank accounts?

Usually this is possible. When a bank account held jointly is levied, the account is generally "frozen" by the court until the non debtor account holder(s) is given a chance to submit proof as to their share of the funds. The exception is, in a few states married couples can hold an account in Tenancy By The Entirety. Under such circumstances the account is only subject to levy if both spouses are named debtors.

Does pa law allow checking account garnishment?

Yes, it does. A garnishment can occur only where the creditor has obtained a judgment against you in a court of law. After the judgment is entered, the creditor can garnish your bank account if it knows where you bank. There are some exceptions to this, in that bank account that is jointly owned by husband and wife cannot be garnished, unless the judgment is against both spouses. The second exception is where the funds in the account are traceable to Social Security benefits. For more answers to similar questions on PA laws, please visit my website at

Is it smart to allow your name to be added to an elderly aunts checking account and if she overdrafts or has problems managing her account will I be held responsible?

If she overdrafts it you would be jointly liable for the overdraft. However you could have the account set up so that it would not allow an overdraft to occur. I presume you are offering to manage her money for her (because she is likely to have problems) if you do so you must ONLY use the money in the account for HER needs/benefit while she is alive. The advantage is that when she dies the account will not be frozen until probate because it is in your name too (the contents are still subject to probate but the account is not frozen on her death).
