Can my husbands ex-wife have my $350 a month disability check garnished for child support?

Chula Vista, CA |

I recently married a man who has two children with his ex wife. She learned that I receive disability payments every month and is somehow under the impression that her child support amount will go up to $1100 a month. My husband has had a slow year, we only bring in close to $1700 a month. What are the chances a judge will grant her access to this money?

zero chance. She cannot get to your money.
