Child and Spousal Support garnishment from bank prior to bankruptcy

I have met with a trustee to talk about bankruptcy. I have filled out the forms and am in the process of getting everything together to be able to file. My question is, I have a creditor (a bank) that has sent me a Writ of Summons that I havent answered to so if they will get a Judgement Default Order and serve my bank account, will they be able to seize my child support / spousal support money that is direct deposited into my account from Family Maintenance Enforcement Program?

Any money in that account is available for seizure up to and until you have filed the official bankruptcy documents with your trustee. Upon the filing of bankruptcy a Stay of Proceeding will be in place and this will remove the ability for this creditor to take any action against your bank accounts or any other assets you may have.
