Your spouse may be entitled to an apportionment of VA compensation IAW 38 CFR 3.450 and 3.452 if there is a valid support order.
Alimony order will depend upon your family court Judge. And as for SSD, if there is an alimony order, yes, SSD may be garnished.

Veteran benefits and those received from Social security can be used as a source of income from which a court can pull from to fund alimony. However, having said that, your spouse would have to prove that he has the need for you to contribute to his needs and that you have the ability to pay. The Courts will also look at the length of your marriage. If you are married less than 7 years, the presumption is that he is not entitled to support. If you are between 7-17 years of marriage, there is no presumption for or against an award of alimony. If your marriage is more than 17 years in length, there is a presumption in favor of alimony but it would still be subject to the test of ability and need.
