Question: Can my ex-wife receive half of my social security reducing my benefit. In other words if I am to receive $1000 is she entitled to $500?
The following is provided for general information only. To find out how the law applies to a specific situation, contact an attorney directly. A party that has a claim against another for alimony or child support may be able to garnish social security. However, this ability will depend on the individual divorce decree and based on individual needs and circumstances of the parties that can vary.
