Default judgement entered under wife's maiden name.
My wife had a default judgement entered against her under her maiden name for a credit card that was solely hers before we married. Can the court levy our joint bank account, even though she has no income, and all deposits are solely mine? She stays at home and only I work. The judgement was entered under her maiden name as well, not her married name. We have been married for 5 years, and the credit card in question is about 7 years old. We have had the joint bank account about 6 years now.

Money in your joint account can be levied by your wife's judgment creditor.
