If I marry a man who owes back child support and restitution from a previous criminal case, can I be held responsible to repay these debts in the future? Can anyone sue me and take my business or personal assets to repay these debts?

No, not if he isn't an "owner" of those assets. However, I would encourage you to reconsider marrying an individual with that kind of baggage, at least until he has his life straightened out and his obligations repaid. It isn't about the money, it's about the instability of such an individual. If you go forward with the marriage, at least get a prenup, since you have assets.
