Default Child Support / Unemployed Spouse

My husband has been unemployed for a few months. I am in the process of getting started with a request for divorce. How will his being unemployed affect child support? He worked a whole year last year and should have a job again soon. Should I hold off till he is working again? I know this sounds selfish but I will need the support to take care of our 5 yr old son.

No, he'll be ordered to pay according to his ability to earn. They can also take up to 50% of his unemployment.

Support is ordered on one's earnings or earning ability. Support will be ordered as both parents have an obligation to support their children. Support will be based upon current financial statements with the court also requiring the last few years' tax returns.
