Generally, the IRS can garnish up to 15% of your monthly Social Security benefits for back taxes; however, if this is your only source of income, and/or if the garnishment would cause you undue financial hardship, the government may classify your account as "noncollectable" and forgo taking action against you. It would be in your best interest to consult a tax attorney for further advice.

Your husband's current income has nothing to do with what he owes in back child support. If he owes money to his kids then he owes money to his kids.

To protect your child(ren), still file with Domestic Relations Court. However, be prepared that the Judge could suspend any order for now.
