Taking/threatening an illegal action

The collection agency obtained a judgment against me only for medical bills associated with the birth of my and my ex-husband ‘s daughter even though I was legally married when she was born and covered under my husband ‘s medical insurance. I contacted them approximately 1 month ago to explain the circumstances of the bill, that the judgment should be against us both, that according to a court ordered divorce decree dated XXXX/XXXX/XXXX, my ex-husband is responsible for those medical bills, that I am currently on welfare ( food stamps & OHP ), that he is almost $ XXXX in arrears on child support, that he has no parenting time with the kids, I have no family to assist in the area, and I only work XXXX hours per week supporting the kids completely on my own.
Last week, my employer and I received a garnishment for {$2900.00}. The judgment is dated for XXXX/XXXX/XXXX and the bills are from on and around XXXX/XXXX/XXXX. They want to take up to XXXX % of my wages for medical bills that are over XXXX years old for my daughter ‘s birth when I am having difficulty financially supporting them now. I was told that it is perfectly normal to take legal action against only me for the medical bills and that I should hire an attorney. Clearly I can not afford that. Please help! This is completely discriminatory against me as the mother and disabling to my finances.
