Attachment for bank accounts and intangible assets.
Seize property and tangible assets.
Garnishment applies to wages. Judgment levy of a bank account.

Yes. A creditor can not just simply walk into a bank and demand your money. Only a court can have a creditor take money from your bank account. Actually, the court would probably order the bank to pay a certain amount to the creditor from your account rather than give the creditor the right to take money out of your account. A supreme court decision stopped that racket in Arizona.

Not without a judge or magistrate ruling in their favour.

Withdrawing money is to take the money out. Say, you are at a bank. You may want to take out money from your bank savings to spend. That is called a withdraw.

Yes, if the creditor puts a lien on your bank account or freezes your funds this money can be effected because it is considered an asset once it is in your account.

Not unless the creditor has a judgment order and executes it as a bank levy.
