Here’s a hypothetical that’s just about assured to induce cold sweat for any Texas resident considering it.
You’re relaxing at home, attending to some personal budget matters. In perusing your bank statement online, you suddenly notice with due alarm that its entries seem strongly out of whack. Checks aren’t clearing. Your account seems frozen.
And then the mail arrives, with one official document informing you that, indeed, the bank has frozen your account pursuant to a garnishment order from a state court.
Do you think a scenario that plays out like that might be just a bit frightening?
