Normally, no. If the property is really, honestly, the property of your new wife, then your ex can't have it. BUT, if you're playing games by hiding YOUR money or property in her name to avoid it being at issue, then that's fraud, and it'll be a problem. I'm curious, however, how property is at issue in a spousal maintenance issue - are you unable to make the required payments? Have you attempted to modify the order?

Can my ex wife go after monies or personal property solely in my new wife's name for alimony payments? Such as a vehicle solely
In my new wifes name or money in an account solely on my new wifes name?
Response: No. However, if your ex wife has information that you are acquiring assets in your new wife's name only to frustrate her collection of alimony from you, she can ask the Court for permission to take those assets for satisfaction of her alimony.
