If your husband falls behind in his child support payments to his ex-wife, your own wages can absolutely NOT be subject to garnishment for his child support obligation. A garnishment, which is a court action, is only possible against the Judgment debtor (in this case the person ordered to pay child support). You are not that person (your husband), so it is not possible to garnish your wages for his debt.
