    Lien on bank account for child support
    I just found out that there is a lien against my bank account for child support. How can this be? I am the primary account holder on this account. The person that owes childsuport is just on the account. Will the lien be raised from my account.

    Possibly; the answer will depend on the law of your state, and whether because of joint ownership the funds can be claimed by a creditor of either owner. I would expect that you will have an opportunity to show what funds in the account are yours; this would be in court. In the meantime, stop all further automatic deposits and withdrawals until you get matters cleared up. In fact, I would bank somewhere else.

    If the other person is on the account in most states all you have to do is prove which of the funds in that account is your funds and which funds in the account belong to the other person. So as noted, don't deposit any more money, don't write anymore checks or withdraws ( these will all bounce for now adding bank charges) If you can show that it is your money not theirs, in most states that should free up your part of the money

    You can probably sue the group taking the money out of your account. If the person has never been on your account they should never been able to remove money from your account. I would talk with a lawyer or try and talk with the group removing the money from your account. Tell them you will sue if the money is not return. The bank should have the court order for them to have removed any money from your account. I am sure you can sue for hardship and a few other things to get more money.

    This is the law forum. We have a different standard here. Please be more careful in the future when answering questions in this section. We try not to "guess".

    The OP stated the other party was on their checking account. The debt was for child support. If the other party was in arrears then the entity making the attatchment was well within the law. There is nothing to sue over.
