When your creditors are seeking a bank levy, it can be a scary and confusing time. How can they just take money out of your bank account without your permission? What if you were saving that money so that you could pay your mortgage and not lose your house? What if you had already earmarked that money for food, utilities, rent, or other bills that you need to pay?
At SM Law Group, APC, our Los Angeles bank levy attorneys can help you protect your assets when your creditors attempt to seek a bank levy against you. In some situations, you may need to consider filing for bankruptcy to put a stop to creditors seeking judgment liens, wage garnishments, and levies on your assets. Regardless of your situation, our attorneys are compassionate and experienced in handling these types of matters and can help you when you call.
If you owe a creditor such as a credit card company, a bank who loaned you money, or a business debt holder, your creditor has many different options to try to recover the money they are owed. One way is by seeking a judgment lien from the court system, where they get an interest in the form of a lien on an asset you own.
Liens can attach to:
When a judgment lien is assessed against a bank account, it is called a bank levy. A bank levy then allows the creditor to draw funds from your account without your permission to satisfy the judgment issued by the court for the amount that is owed to them.
If a creditor is in the process of seeking a bank levy or other type of lien, you may have some options and means of stopping them from accessing your funds.
