In Colorado it is possible for a debt collector to levy a bank account. It is necessary for the approval from a court in order for a debt collector to place a levy on the bank account.

A levy or lien is placed on someone's property or bank account by a creditor. When a levy is placed on an account the amount the levy is for is taken out of the bank account.

An attorney can get a court order to levy your bank account or your wages.

If the creditor wins a lawsuit and receives a judgment the judgment can possibly be used as a bank account levy. This would depend upon state laws relating to how the bank account is established.

No, but a bank account can only be levied by a court order.


The court can grant a levy withdrawal if there is no money in the account. They will take whatever money is in the account when it is put in.

They can levy bank accounts in most cases, they cannot garnish wages.

You get fined a fee by the bank, your account is frozen, and they will probably come after your paycheck through garnishment (even if the levy is removed) Levy is a step, garnishment follows.

It's a one time rape of your bank account. Whatever funds are holding when the bank levy hits, up to the judgment amount, will be deducted from your account and sent to the court. If they issue another levy, same thing will happen again each time the levy is issued.

A court levy is actually put in place by a court, the bank is required by law to comply with the court. The reason the court may have put a levy on your account is usually due to an unpaid debt. I would contact your bank and try to find out the details. In most places, the bank is required to provide notification of a levy, but not until after the levy action has taken place.

The day the bank receives the levy the funds should be taken from the account or accounts and make a cashier's check payable to Wisconsin Department of Revenue. The funds can be held in the this for up to 21 days. If the bank doesn't get a release of the levy, the bank needs to send the funds to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. If the bank receive a release of the levy, the bank can deposit the funds back into the account or accounts that the funds where taken from

That depends upon the laws of the state where you reside or where the bank account is. Normally, when a levy is placed on a bank account, the account is frozen and the account owner is given a certain amount of time to go to court to prove that the levy should not have been placed on the account. The money in the account will not be turned over to anyone until the court orders it. If the account owner fails to make an objection in court within the stated time period, the bank is allowed to assume that the owner has no objection and turn the account funds over to the creditor.

Yes, Texas allows a judgment creditor to execute a bank account levy, even if the account is jointly held.

The State of Delaware prohibits bank garnishments with the exception of a tax levy. Just to be clear, the only way that your bank account can be garnished in Delaware is if you owe back taxes. To clarify about the Delaware bank account: It is not enough just to open the account in Delaware. You have to have a Delaware address on the bank account. The exception is to this is to open an account at a bank that only has branches in Delaware. Then, as I understand it, you can have any address you want on the account.

A judgment creditor might be able to levy against a joint account where only one account holder is the debtor. It really depends how the bank account is held and the state laws pertaining to such. One example, joint marital bank accounts held in community property states are subject to levy even if only one spouse is the named debtor.

A bank account levy is one method for a judgment creditor to recover monies owed for a debt. The judgment holder files the writ of judgment with the clerk of the court where the judgment was entered against the judgment debtor as bank account levy. I If the judgment is allowed to be executed, the sheriff will serve the writ for levy (garnishment) of the debtor's account on the bank where the account is held. The bank can either honor the writ and release the funds up to the maximum of the judgment or request the court to "freeze" the account and decide whether or not the judgment writ is valid. When an account is joint and only one account holder is the judgment debtor, the bank will usually request the account to be frozen. It then becomes the responsibility of the non debtor account holder to provide documentation to the court proving the amount of funds belonging to them.

A creditor can only levy your bank account by getting a judgment against you. To do that, they must sue you. And they must win in court. If you are sued by a creditor, be sure to show up for court to prevent this from happening.

In the majority of U.S. states a bank account levy is valid for one withdrawal withing 30 days of the date of execution. If the debt is not satisfied the judgment holder must refile the judgment as another bank levy. Generally a bank account levy can only be executed once 60-90 days after the original action. Unfortunately, in most cases the judgment holder can remove whatever amount necessary from the account to pay the debt, even if that means the account holder is left with no funds. This is only one reason that a bank account levy can be so damaging. Specific laws apply to joint accounts as to how and when the account can be levied when only one account holder is the judgment debtor.

Only the State and Federal governments are able to levy your bank account directly. Creditors are generally not entitled to money you have in your bank account (either directly or indirectly) but can get a Judgment against you in which case some kind of garnishment could possibly be established. The fact that the money is SSI may not matter in the end.
