1.

Debts and credits, due or to become due, from a bank incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada or the laws of the United States of America, or other personal property held by the bank must be garnished by serving a copy of the writ of garnishment on one of the following officers of the bank:

(a)

If the bank has no branches, trust department or military facility, on the president, vice president, assistant vice president, cashier, assistant cashier, manager or other managing officer in charge of the bank owing the debts, or having in its possession or under its control the credits or other personal property.

(b)

If the bank has branches or military facilities owing the debts or having in its possession or under its control the credits or other personal property, on the vice president, assistant vice president, assistant cashier, manager or other managing officer in charge of the branch or in charge of the military facility. Service on that officer or agent constitutes a valid levy on any debt, credit or other personal property owing by any branch or military facility of the bank.

(c)

If the bank has a trust department owing the debts or having in its possession or under its control the credits or other personal property, on the vice president and trust officer, trust officer, assistant trust officer or other managing officer of the trust department.

3.

A garnishment pursuant to this section creates a lien only upon the amounts in the accounts or to the credit of the debtor at the time of service of the writ of garnishment. An item in the process of collection is included in the amount of an account unless the item is returned unpaid. Money in the accounts that the garnishee has declared under oath and in answers to interrogatories to be exempt from execution is not included in the amount of the account.

4.

No garnishment may occur until the defendant has been served with the notice of execution in substantially the form prescribed in NRS 31.045 and in the manner prescribed in NRS 21.076.
