1 Answer from Attorneys
Based on the facts mentioned in your inquiry, yes, your bank joint account can be garnished or attached and deposit box seized if a count judgment order was issued against you. A bankruptcy, chapter 7, may result in discharge of debts listed in your petition, including the amex debt, however, amex will merely be prevented from further collection actions.
