Best Answer

Yes, a bank account joint or otherwise can be levied against for child support payments, If the account is held by a married couple the entire account is subject to levy, regardless of whether or not the couple reside in a community property state. If it is held as joint tenants with someone other than a spouse, the other account holder will have to prove to the court what portion of the funds in the account belong to him or her.

Can your husband's ex sue you or use your income for child support?

No. Child support is the responsibility of the biological parent who is named in the support order. It is possible for a joint bank account or other property be attached for payment of support to the extent of amount owned by the person ordered to pay the support, including liens against real property. In addition in community property states the court will often allow an entire bank account of a married couple to be garnished for child support that is owed by only one of the spouse's. The safest option is for the new spouse to have a separate account not a joint marital account.
