Not sure. Is it your half for a place you lived together in?

You most likely will be held responsible for half, and garnished eventually.

Job or not... If you dont have anything to prove it wasn't your resposibility to pay half of those things then you'll be liable...

If they rule in his favor, you will be ordered to pay them, plus court costs. But really, they can't force you to pay money you don't have. You would still only be paying him what you could when you could. 

Have you tried to pay anything on it? If so, did you keep a record of that? If yes to both, if he takes you to court, just explain your situation to the judge and show him that you have been trying to make an effort, it would prob make a difference...
