Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Generally social security is exempt from collections other than in cases of past owed arrears for child support, student loans, or restitution. Therefore, you cannot pursue his social security as garnishment over the debts owed to you. I am sorry!
Sincerely,
Dimitry, Esq.
