You should be able to get unemployment benefits if you are unemployed but contact EDD And follow the instructions to file an unemployment claim. For support if he is not paying you want to file a request for order to make a payment plan for arrears and ask that he pay for your attorney fees because it is him not following the order that brought this case to the courts.

If no one files a request to modify the support, then the orders still stay in place. He owes you the support and past-due support is charged at 10 percent per annum.

As for unemployment benefits, I believe you may not qualify due to traditional rules (employed for 6 months). The rules are constantly changing due to Covid19. I agree with counsel, I would give it a shot to file for unemployment and see what they say.

Honestly, I do not know.
However, if you apply now, you will find out.
