The state does not allow wage garnishment for creditor debt, but does allow garnishment for court ordered child support and/or spousal maintenance or state, federal, municipal taxes owed. Bank garnishment is allowed by state laws, if the account is held jointly, the non-debtor account holder will be notified and can file a petition to have the funds in the account belonging to them exempted. Other actions that might be taken are a lien against real property, the forced sale of non-exempt property belonging solely to the debtor.

All SS benefits are exempt from judgment creditors under federal law. They cannot be garnished nor can a bank account holding such funds be levied by a judgment order. A judgment creditor who knowingly attempts to seize exempted funds by means of a judgment order can be sued by the judgment debtor. Likewise any bank or financial institution that knowingly releases such protected funds can also be sued for damages incurred by the beneficiary and/or his or her family.

Yes, in some cases a judgment creditor may levy funds on a prepaid card. This depends on which state you live in but most states do allow this.

AnswerTry to vacate the judgment through the court that entered the judgment. This may temporarily release your bank account funds if you were not properly served.

The judgment creditor can execute the judgment as a bank levy in which case, the bank must release the amount of funds stated in the court order regardless of how the funds are deposited in the account. The entire balance of an account can be seized if it is needed to pay the judgment order. The judgment debtor should take steps to protect funds within the account that might be considered exempt (Social Security benefits, disability benefits, monies that belong to an account holder who is not the judgment debtor, etc.)

A judgment creditor can levy a bank account(s) held by the judgment debtor. An account can be frozen by the court when it appears that funds might be removed and/or transferred to avoid the judgment levy or to allow the judgment debtor to claim exempted funds in the account(S) or when the account is jointly held by a person who is not a judgment debtor. A joint account holder who is not a judgment debtor is required to present documents proving to the court the amount of funds that belong to them and which are not subject to a judgment levy. In some instances when an account is held jointly by a married couple and only one spouse is the named debtor the entire account will be exempted from a judgment creditor levy.

Federal pass through funds are grants given to one organization to be passed through directly into the hands of another group. This is often done when the group that actually needs the funds cannot be funded directly by federal funds.

The plaintiff can file a motion to have your property seized to pay off your debt. Generally, this means garnishing your bank accounts or paychecks. Sometimes courts can find you in willful contempt for refusing to pay and hold you in custody until the funds are paid.

User Avatar

Generally, no. Social security funds are usually exempt from garnishment to satisfy judgment. There are so exceptions, though.

No. Military and government pensions are exempt from judgment creditor action. However, the judgment debtor should keep in mind that it is his or her duty to inform the court that such funds are exempt from attachment. Exempt monies such as pension benefits, SSI, SSD, etc. should never be commingled with other funds in any bank account.

It depends, but could be 1% of total estate and you can petition the courts to have the trustee removed if you suspect misusing of funds.

Only insofar as the judgment can be levied against the estate of the deceased. Since it can be assumed that the willed property was part of the estate's assets then it can be liened if there are insufficient other funds in the estate's assets to satisfy the judgment.

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.

If you are the not named on the judgment levy, you must file a petition with the court where the judgment was granted to have the confiscated funds belonging to you returned. The court will require proof of what portion of the funds in the account were yours. If the account was held jointly by a married couple in a community property state the total amount of the account if not considered exempt (SS benefits, public assistance, private pensions and disability benefits) is subject to seizure by the judgment creditor even when only one spouse is the judgment debtor.

If the judgment was not perfected as a lien against the property (which is almost impossible in Florida), the property is not encumbered and the title should be clear, thereby not causing a problem with the sale. The judgment holder will probably be able to execute the judgment as a bank account levy and/or seize funds garnered from the sale of the homestead.

User Avatar

Yes. A bank account can be levied by the judgment creditor even if the account is jointly held. If the account is joint and only one of the account holder's is the named judgment debtor, the non debtor account holder must submit proof to the court as to the amount of funds belonging to them in order to protect those funds from being seized. When it concerns such joint account the court will generally freeze the account and allow the non debtor a specified amount of time to claim his or her exempt funds that are in the account.

No, the portion of the property owned by either is an asset available to creditors of that person. The court can force a sale and distribute the funds to the owners according to their ownership percentages.
