What should I do if a garnishment was applied to my checking & savings account, but I was in no way involved with the case proceedings.
My father is currently in a dispute with the state of CA for some back taxes, but my entire checking and savings have been wiped out because of a court order evolving this case. I haven't lived with my parents for ten years. I was under the age of 18 when I opened my account so my mother's name is also on it. The state of CA saw this as ample reason to take every penny I have.
Do I have a case for wrongful garnishment, & can I seek financial compensation for the many troubles this has caused me?
