We are not married, but he does have health insurance thru my job. Will my income be factored into the courts decision? We also live together.
No, your income does not become part of his child support calculation. In cases where both parties have income the only way that the new spouse and come affects the formula as if it's of changes the tax situation.
You will not have to pay, but enforcement efforts can take joint assets, if there are any. If you are not married, your income is not used in the calculation for child support. If you were married, your income and his tax filing status (presumably married) is used to calculate support. If that increases his net income, then his support would increase.
How long ago was he ordered to pay support? If he makes no money, he should not owe very much if any support. If he was ordered to pay support at a time when he made more money, and now his income has decreased, he needs to file for a modification immediately. If he keeps missing payments and does not modify what he owes each month, he will keep owing the arrears plus interest at 10% a year. This can quickly turn into a huge debt and it cannot be forgiven, ever, even in bankruptcy.
