Can the government legally take 100% of my wages to pay for a debt my husband owed before we were married?

Question Details:

6 months after marrying I found out that my husband owes a lot of money to the government. Now they are threatening to take my car and 100% of the income. If I file for divorce can they still take my things from me? The house is his and he is already paying them most of what he makes. I have wanted out for a long time but now I face losing everything I worked do hard to get is there anything I can do?
