My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you with your legal question.

Generally, the law presumes the when a person is listed on a bank account, they have full rights to the money in that bank account. Thus, any account on which a person is listed is liable to seizure by a creditor through a garnishment order. So, in short, the answer to your question is YES. If your daughter is sued by the collection agency, and the collection agency wins the case and gets a judgment, it could file the judgment in New Mexico and ask for a writ of garnishment against your bank account on which your daughter is also listed.
