Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, generally, because Texas is community property state both spouses' assets are considered marital assets that are jointly owned, so the judgment creditor of one spouse, can in fact garnish / seize other spouse's assets even if the name of the judgment debtor spouse is not on any of his spouse's assets.
So generally, it would be a good idea to contact the attorneys for judgment creditor and see if some type of payment plan or settlement for less than full amount can be negotiated, so the matter can be fully resolved and judgment can be satisfied and it is important to obtain any settlement agreement in writing and to carefully check its terms.
I wish you the best of luck!
