Is child support exempt from a bank levy?
Question Details: My question is about the money in the account and what is exempt from the levy. We already know we can claim 75% of his wages that had just been deposited into the bank account but we were wondering if my child support which is paid to support my minor children is also exempt? I can not find it listed as an exemption. However, when I have searched on the internet about it I have found that most websites state that child support is one of the items exempt from the levy. Is this true?
Under the laws of all states in this country, monies deposited in a judgment debtor's bank account ear-marked for child support paid from the other parent under a court order is exempt from levy under a bank levy. The key is to not mix together child support payments with one's other monies when one is a judgment debtor.
