But if he's in Oregon and I'm in Michigan, what can actually be done to force him? Response: As previously stated, you need to file another Contempt action in Michigan against him. He would again be ordered to show cause why he should not be held in Contempt of Court and this time put in jail until he complies with the Order. If he fails to show up for the hearing, Michigan Court would issue a warrant for his arrest.
Would the judges order in Michigan allow Oregon to arrest him? hope so.
