Yes, Texas is a community property state therefore all joint marital accounts can be garnished regardless of which spouse incurred the debt. Accounts held by persons not married, places the burden of proof as to the percentage of funds belonging to non-debtor account holder and would therefore be exempt from judgment levy.

Can you be sued in Texas and have your wages garnished?

Hi there. I am a Texas collection attorney. You can have your wages garnished in Texas ONLY for child or spousal support. That's what the Texas Constitution says. So if you are not being sued for child or spousal support, your wages cannot be garnished to satisfy a judgment. Hope this helps. Good luck. Although Texas does have a statute that prevents wage garnishment by a judgment creditor there is an exception if no other method is available for the creditor to execute said judgment. This means that if the judgment debtor does not have personal or real property (bank account, real estate, etc.) that can be attached or liquidated to satisfy the judgment amount wage garnishment is possible.
