Asked on: 4/23/13, 3:55 pm

what federal or georgia stae law allows banks to freeze accounts from a garnishment without that person being on the account when the bank received their notice on 4/10/13 I did not receive any notice of the garnishment until 4/17/13 when they froze my spouse federal tax refund I was added to the account 4/11/13 unaware of the garnishment on the account. I'm a homemaker I dont contribute to the account my spouse does, and the bank is trying to give me the run around about they can hold a garnishment for 30 days if that's true they would have been holding it on a single account not a joint account without my name on it because they had no way of knowing our plans to add me.
