If my creditor obtains a judgment and I have my paycheck deposited into someone else's account, can that account be seized?

Question Details:

My home was foreclosed on last year. The second mortgage was used for an 80/20 loan (no down). The second mortgage can and probably will sue. The company I work for requires direct deposit and I have this deposited in a friends account which does not have my name on it. Can this account, and others belonging to my friend be frozen and or seized? I do not want to put this friend at risk for trying to help me.
