She is also married and pregnant with her second child (by her husband) and she works part time under the table. We are trying to conceive our own child and I’m worried he will get screwed and it will affect our ability to financially provide for our child.
If there's a support order in effect, actually your husband is required by that court order to notify Domestic Relations of any change in his income. No, absent your husband's notice to DRO, the ex will not be notified. Your husband needs to sit down with an experienced family law attorney to...Read more »
Hard to know without having all of the facts. The court can garnish a workers' comp settlement for the payment of child support. I'm assuming that the court imputed an income to you based on your prior income and injury. The basis for your WC award (2 years' wages) does not bind the court.
Hard to know. Child support in PA is strictly income-driven so the other order will be based on a different combination of incomes than one would be for you.

He can keep filing to his heart's delight. If you do find yourself in court, though, and you have retained an attorney to represent you, you may eventually be able to receive an award of counsel fees.

My husband has been paying support since his ex gf and him split up. He has been over paying as his job kept taking the money out.

He can find out for sure by contacting your local Domestic Relations Office. Is his child 18 and been graduated from high school? That's the most likely reason.
