    Default Social Security Exemption From Garnishment

    Went to court today and met with the lawyer trying to garnish my fathers bank account.

    I gave the lawyer the bank statements and she said that it was not enough proof.

    My question to you guy's is, Other than bank statements, What additional documents do you need and how far back in history to you have to go.

    All info will be greatly appreciated.

    Did you ask the lawyer what proof she would deem acceptable? Presumably you are seeking her cooperation, as opposed to having to litigate the issue.

    When we arrive at court the clerk ask all people who were there to meet with the lawyer for the company that had the judgement against them out in the hall.....So I did and presented 5 months of bank statements.

    I was under the impression that the judge would make that determination not the lawyer suing us.

    Anyway the bank sent the court the funds 7 days prior to the court date.

    The most recent bank statement does'nt show where the money came from because the funds were taken on june 13th and the statement only shows transactions up to june 5th.

    However ever statement idicates that all monies coming into the account were from the u.s. treasurey and nothing else.

    isn't that all you need to show.
