Yes, either spouse can be garnished by creditors but usually not both spouses at the same time. Because Arizona is a community property state, the plaintiff must sue both the husband and the wife for a lawsuit and any judgment granted to be valid. The winning plaintiff can also levy a joint or single account of a married couple.

Can creditors garnish your wages for an unsecured debt in Arizona?

First off...unsecured debt is clearly what the process is for as a secured debt creditor generally doesn't need to use garnishment for collection as they simply take the asset they have the debt secured by. Garnishments are generally allowed for debts you are failing to pay as you swore and agreed you would. There is a process to follow that leads up to a garnishment being allowed, but essentially, if you won't pay your obligations - it is one of many ways that can be used by those you owe to get what they legally are due and you owe. Getting an attachment to property - essentially having a court agree to make the loan a secured loan to something - and then seizing and selling that item is another.
