I am a certified bookkeeper/tax preparer and have recently

Resolved Question:

I am a certified bookkeeper/tax preparer and have recently formed an LLC for a client who had worked as a sole proprietor up until April 13, 2010; The major owner and his wife owe a large medical bill at a local hospital. They received a Garnishee notice in the regular mail, not sent certified etc; showing the hospital vs. my client vs. my clients bank where my clients LLC bank account is held. Can this garnishment take monies from the LLC's bank account?
Please advise ASAP; I need to respond to the court for a hearing if I feel that the LLC's bank account should be exempt from garnishment.

If it is a proper corporation then the bank shouldn't garnish the corporate account since it is a separate legal entity. HOWEVER a lot of banks garnish any account that a person is a signator on, so it is not out of the realm of possibility. If they do garnish it the judge should release it at the hearing since it is improper.
