Is New Spouse Responsible for Child Support?

If you get remarried and fall behind on your child support because you are not working can they garnish your new wife’s wages.or her bank accounts.

No. Your new wife has no legal obligation to pay your child support. Neither her wages nor her bank accounts can be garnished unless you are jointly on her bank accounts. If so, the bank accounts can be garnished.
