How do Creditors Get Bank Levies?

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 homes, cars, personal property, or even bank accounts. 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.

Can I Prevent a Bank Levy?

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. One way is to utilize bankruptcy protections. When you file for bankruptcy, creditors will no longer be able to seek liens, wage garnishments, or bank levies to satisfy the debt. They will instead be forced to utilize the bankruptcy process, where certain amounts of your assets will be protected against the creditors and unreachable through the bankruptcy process. Our experienced attorneys have helped many men and women in the San Fernando Valley area prevent bank levies through bankruptcy and we can help you, too.
