    Bank account lien laws for back child support in Texas
    I live in Mississippi and just discovered that my bank account reflects a negative balance of $54.666.00. I suspect that this is a lien or levy due to back child support from the Attorny General's Office in Texas. Can they do that? They have been taking payments out of my payroll check.

    No, I don't believe that they can do this without first obtaining a judgment against you. Did they serve a writ of garnishment on
    • your bank in Mississippi; and
    • your employer (also in Mississippi, I assume)?

    Is there a child support judgment (or divorce decree awarding child support) in effect?
