I have a question I need help on. After being divorced for 2 years, my marital residence was finally sold. This was the last piece of the settlement that had to be divided. In accordance with the divorce decree both my ex-wife and myself were responsible for half of all expenses. She did not want to pay anything and rather than have the property go into foreclosure, I have been paying 100% of all the bills. After the closing of the house and all debts were settled to mortgage, realtor & settlement companies, and all was said & done, I was entitled to reimbursements from my ex-wife totaling $40K. A motion was filed and the judge ruled in my favor that my ex-wife had to reimburse me for her half of the expenses I paid out of pocket. Now I have to collect... Good Luck huh? Naturally, we are filing to have her salary garnished. However, I am paying her close to $1500 a month in alimony. My question is - Can we garnish her alimony as well. She refuses to work full time and only works 16 hours a week. Garnishing her wages will take two decades to pay back. If her Sousal Support is garnished as well, the debt will be paid off sooner and she can retain her standard of living by increasing her work hours to full time.
