My understanding is that disability benefits can be garnished for child support but that SSI benefits may not. SSA's website mentions this difference in FAQs regarding direct deposit:

You should also note that auxillary benefits paid to dependents of SSDI (not SSI) recipients do not equate to child support. In other words if a disabled claimant with children is awarded SSDI and those children begin receiving benefits as a dependent of the claimant, those auxillary benefits do not offset the claimant's obligation to pay child support.
