    Can I garnish his wages since it is court ordered in our divorce decree?

    What is the name of your state? Missouri

    My divorce was final in February 2007 and it states that my ex is to repay 3,200 to me for debt accumulated during the marriage. Am I able to garnish his wages since he hasn't paid me a dime? And how do I do it? If not, what do I do?

    No YOU cannot garnish his wages... you can attempt to file contempt on him for non payment but it has only been 3 months.
