Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Nothing you can do here to get the money back, the notice she got was after the fact that they have the funds.You are able to file Chapter 7 to discharge the debt and avoid the problem in the future.But the funds here were levied if they have a judgment against you and you were on the account.The wife needs to take your name off the account and you may want to file Chapter 7 here yourself solo and discharge the debt.
Unfortunately the funds aren't coming back, this is an after the fact notice they send to the account holder.
I am sorry, please don't shoot the messenger here.Jut trying to give you honest information about the lalw and garnishment/levy.
You need to take your name of any bank accounts here, you may rent a safety box and put cash there off the grid so to speak.Pay with cash or money orders.
