The spouse or husband owed the back child support before he and the new wife got married. The wages of the new are being garnished for his back child support. The children are not hers and have been grown adults since they have been married.

    Yes! If you owe child support somewhere along the lines, they will garnish your wages. It doesnt matter whether you are a man or a woman.

    I've heard of people getting their wages garnished for back child support. It doesn't matter if male or female.

    Wages? for the wife? who has the kids???

    kinda confusing.. I believe that if someone owes back child support they can take there liences away which would end them up in jail..

    Is the wife the one that owes back child support?

    Other wise no, and if it is happening the judge that order it needs to be impeached because he/she made an illegal order.
