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.

You can't sue her for doing right by hers and your husbands son if he doesn't pay child support. That is your husband's wrongdoing and not hers. I think it would be a total waste of money to sue her for trying to get to your income as well. But you could if you wanted to.

How long does an adult child have to sue for back child support if a child support order was never issued?

Your mother should have pursued your father in court for child support when you were young. In most jurisdictions you have no legal standing to sue your father for child support now, and especially if there was no original child support order. If there was an order at some time your mother may be able to sue for arrears but that seems not to be the case.
