If a bank levy is preferred, the Creditor must also complete a Writ of Execution. An exemption notice does not need to be served prior to a bank levy. The exemption notice is sent to the debtor after the funds have been held. The creditor must give the Sheriff's Office a $15 check written to the bank. The name on the bank account must be the same as the name on the judgment; otherwise the bank may not honor the levy.
