In most cases yes, although you should have received notice of a judgment being granted and had a specified time to claim exemptions or take other action to protect property. A bank does not need to notify the account holder that a court ordered levy has been executed on the account. As soon as the bank is presented the order, by law they must take the action ordered. Some banks will give the account holder 24 hours notice, but that is a courtesy not a legal requirement. States have specific laws as to how an account can be levied, to joint accounts in particular, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. In the meantime, DO NOT deposit or allow automatic deposits put into the account. Depending upon the court order and the amount owed the creditor may be able to withdraw almost immediately, any funds deposited.

It depends: a. If your account was closed because of insufficient balance being maintained or frequent bounced check issues etc., the bank would send you a notification letter and close the account. b.

It is perfectly legal and by the law. The offending customer should not be informed when the bank takes such an action.
