As it is and asset they may be able to take what ever they class as assets, before or after, but not 100% sure depending on each individual case. * If the car is titled in both spouse's names with the name divided by the word "or", the vehicle may be subject to seizure and sale or lien attachment by a judgment creditor if it is not protected under the state vehicle exemption. In the majority of cases a judgment creditor will not be granted the rights to a forced sale of marital property that is jointly owned unless the couple reside in a community property state. Since a lawsuit has already been implemented the debtor should not attempt to transfer the title or have his named removed, as that might possibly be seen as a fraudlent conveyance and create more legal difficulties for both spouses.

If the husband is not a contractual party to the debt, then no, he is not responsible regardless of what state the debts originate from.

If however the husband has any joint assetts with the wife, if the Washington creditor seeks to recover the debt by attaching assetts and discovers them in the state in which she currently resides with the husband, those assetts will be attached and disbursed to the creditors, regardless of whether or not the husband is a contractual party to the debt.

In Nevada can a wife's wages be garnished by a civil judgment against her husband for debts he incurred during their marriage.?

In some community property states it is possible for a creditor to garnish the wages of either spouse even if only one spouse is the judgment debtor if the debt was incurred during the marriage. Such a garnishment would not apply in cases of child support or alimony. In non CP states only the spouse who holds the account is responsible for the debt. Spouse's are not responsible for their partner's debts that were incurred before marriage regardless of where the married couple reside. That being the case, a judgment against a person before their marriage could not be enforced against the new spouse. Please be advised, that if the judgment has not been executed, it is the debtor's responsibility to file the allowed real and personal property exemptions and other pertinent information. In such a situation, the non debtor spouse could not have his or her wages garnished, but in most states it is possible to levy joint marital bank accounts.
