The answer is, generally, no.
The law prohibits creditors from garnishing VA disability or SS checks. That said, a court can consider VA disability and SS in deciding if support is appropriate. So a court could consider that income (VA and SS) in determining if support is appropriate. And the federal government can take money from another federal agency (so, say a person owed money to the IRS, they can enforce that debt via the VA)But other than that? It is not possible to garnish
