I added my daughter to my bank accounts when I went on vacation. If something were to
happen to me she could pay my bills. I have a levy on all my bank accounts because she owes 1st financial money. She does not, and never has contributed any money to these accounts. I have never received any information from anyone letting me know I was even a
a part of her situation. What action do I take to have this levy lifted?
You pay the judgment. In the alternative, you will have to challenge the levy in court and attempt to claim that, since you were never a party to the case and all the funds in the account are yours, you should be exempt from the levy. That "may" work, but probably not. The problem is this - by adding your daughter's name to your account as a joint account holder, the money in that account is just as much yours as it is hers - it is HER account, too. So, the bank executed the levy, which was the correct thing to do.
