Since the judgment is against you personally, and against the LLC, yes they can you personal account as well as the account for the LLC.
Are you the only owner of the new LLC? If so, and although they may need to jump through several additional legal hoops to do so, ultimately they would be able to garnish the new LLC's account too.

So now you are telling me that the judgment is not against you and your wife? In that case, yes, they can only garnish the LLC account.
