What is the name of your state?OR I am going to file bankurptcy in September. I have a checking account at Wells Fargo. Also I have a loan there that I am including in the bankruptcy. Do I need to move my checking account before filing? Will Wells Fargo attach and freeze my account once they are notified with my bankruptcy filing?

I would.
Depends on how the account documents and loan agreement is worded but I wouldn't give 'em a chance to freeze by claiming a setoff or some sort of cross-collateralization.
