1. This is the agreement which somehow became an order that I supposedly agreed to which I did not but that is not the issue below this order find the agreement which I was made to sign by my x’s attorney before I could be released from jail for contempt of court. Forcing me to sign this was and is criminal and violates so many laws to many to name. Just wanted you to understand what I have been through just to see my children. Notice in line 2 the last part of that sentence “this court” well there was no court it was my x’s attorneys’ court period, no Judge has ever saw this or agreed with it. A matter a fact I have an order which states the opposite signed by the first Judge. Also according to what I have read imprisoning a contemnor for failure to pay a support debt based merely upon a finding of civil contempt, (and this was not a support debt at all) when he or she lacks the current ability to pay the full amount of the support arrearage, may violate S.C. Const. Art. I, § 19, which states “No person shall be imprisoned for debt except in cases of fraud.” If the court’s goal is to actually punish the payor for non compliance, it either needs to use criminal contempt sanctions (which afford the alleged contemnor much greater rights, such as the right to counsel, the right to remain silent, and the right to a jury trial if the incarceration period will be greater than six months) or use the criminal courts and prosecute the delinquent payor for failure to support a spouse or child under S.C. Code Ann § 63-3-20. If the court’s true goal is to use civil contempt to obtain payment and enforce compliance with support orders it needs to end the incarceration when the payor pays what he or she has the current ability to pay and then put the payor on an accelerated payment plan, using wage withholding when possible, on the remaining arrears. Using civil contempt to punish delinquent payors is an impermissible application of civil contempt. After reading please advise, it is crazy but all true I am not just spending money to have you read this and offer your opinion for because I have nothing better to do.
2. Lastly can a disabled person in SC be imprisoned without a doctor’s consent? I am a paraplegic and have been for a long time my health then as now is not good, just thought I would ask.
