Our bank account has a legal hold on it. Is there anything that we can do?

Question Details:

My husband and I just got paid on Friday 4/2/10. There was $1630 in the bank on Friday. Today when we went to pay for our food found that our debit cards are not working. Our account balance is now showing -$2000. We called the bank and they said collectiom agancyl put a legal hold on our account. They gave us the phone number to their lawyer. It is a Saturday and we will now have to wait until Monday to figure anything out. Is there anything at all we can do? We have been stripped of any money for food or gas.
