Can they now come after the wife for the balance due? What should she say to the lawyers calling for payment? Can they garnish her wages as part of this?

This is partly guesswork, and much depends on which state they are in, but yes, she might be responsible for it. It doesn't matter to creditors who was assigned which debt in a divorce agreement. But she really needs to talk to a lawyer. She should not depend on advice from a message board. All I'm saying is that she might be responsible. She needs to talk to her lawyer.
