I live in Florida and recently found out I have a child

Customer Question

I live in Florida and recently found out I have a child support warrant in Ottawa County, Michigan. The local police here tried to arrest me at work but I wasn't there. They said they were going to extradite me. I have been homeless for most of the last 6 years, and only recently started working again. I contacted the court up there a few weeks ago to update my information (I have a pending disability case) and ask what I need to do for now, and they didn't answer me, just sent the local sheriffs to get me. I cannot lose my job to be extradited to Michigan, if that happens, I might as well go back to living on the street. I have not paid any support in many years and I realize that homelessness and unemployment and disability probably isn't an excuse, but it's the truth. I have tried calling the prosecutors office there and they say there is nothing that can be done except coming to Michigan, either by myself (which I can't afford) or by extradition, in which case I will lose my ability to start paying, my home, and everything I've managed to gain back this past year.
