can they come across state lines to arrest you for contempt

This answer was rated:

can they come across state lines to arrest you for contempt of court for not paying your alimony?

Steven Kincaid :

Thank you for allowing me to assist you.

Steven Kincaid :

They can, but they only do so if a person is one of the top offenders in the country. The decision of whether not to extradite a child support obligor for non-payment would rest with the state that is trying to enforce the order. However, this almost never happens.

Steven Kincaid :

Is there anything else I can help you with?

I was unable to read what you wrote in your post. Sometimes when that occurs, it works better to switch to question and answer mode so I have done that. Do you have further questions?
