After leaving my abusive ex, I lost my job. I ran into trouble with my bank account a few months ago and it's now in the negative ($500+). I will be starting a new job this week, but I need Direct Deposit information. If I give them my checking account number to the account that's negative, I won't get a paycheck for at least 6-8 weeks because it will go to fixing the balance.
Can I open a checking account at another bank if I already have one in the negative? (I plan to fix my negative account with my Income Tax Return - I won't leave it the way it is.)

My husband did it years ago and eventually fixed the negative account. It doesn't hurt to try.
