What happens when non-custodial parent is not able to attend court in another state due to financial limitations?

A default judgment, probably awarding the maximum support allowed by that state's law, will be entered against your husband. If he is making substantially less than that award would be based on, and the child is young, he would be far better off defending the claim and getting his documented proof of earning capacity before the court.
