If i where to add him to my checking account would the state he owes money to freeze my account because it has his name on it?

Yes, they can seize the money in the account. I would not add him to the account until all the arrears are caught-up. Even if he is caught-up on child support, it is ill-advised that you add him until you are sure that he is going to stick around and not clear the bank account out and take off.
