In Florida can a joint marital bank account be levied by a judgment creditor if the wife accrued the debt prior to marriage and the loan was in her maiden name?

Not if the account is held by the married couple as Tenancy By The Entirety (Entireties). If the judgment is in the debtor's maiden name, it is likely that to assure it validity it would be amended to show the debtor's current married name as well.
