Can debt collectors garnish my wages though ex-spouse is liable for debt?

Our divorce decree holds my ex-spouse liable for a huge credit card debt. The collectors have been contacting him, but he hasn’t paid a dime to them yet. Now, the collectors are asking me to pay for the dues and I have been told that they can even garnish my wages. Can they do that, though the divorce decree places the responsibility of repayment on my ex-husband?
