Terry L. :

Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.

Terry L. :

The bank can issue a freeze, but then you would have to go before the court to explain that the funds in there are exempt

Terry L. :

It can be frozen, this hearing is usually called a citation to discover assets.

let me know if you have any other questions
