Protecting Your Bank Accounts From Levies
Levying a bank account is one of the more aggressive methods creditors use to satisfy debts. It is an unsettling tactic as the creditor effectively freezes your account until it secures all money owed.
You will receive notification of the bank levy, but not a specific date when your money will be taken. That can result in bounced checks and subsequent bank fees, doubling the humiliation of transactions not clearing and additional creditors coming after you.

Using Bankruptcy To Prevent A Levy
At the Law Office of Kenneth Gallant, I can take immediate action to prevent a levy. After you have received notification, you can file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy to stop the levy from occurring. The automatic stay will also prevent other creditors from levying your account.
Your money stays with you, where it belongs.
A bankruptcy filing may also stop any future creditor harassment such as wage garnishment, foreclosure of your home or repossession of your car.
