Hi, my name is ***** ***** i would be happy to help you with your question. Could you clarify a bit more for me please.

What exactly are you worried about being arrested for?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I was joined to my child's divorce, because I accepted POA to help out. He is in jail right. The judge said I had until July of this year to start sending spousal support. In the meantime I paid off bills with the money he got from Soc Sec and the VA. The judge later said he meant to say January. Well, by that time the money was used. Then to make matters worse, the bank that the money was being sent to put a reclamation on all the funds and now no one has access to any of the money. I am 77 years old and taking care of a disabled spouse with brain injuries. I am suffering from extremely high blood pressure and foot problems. I can't just up and leave my spouse for a week, plus we are living on a fixed disability income. Every time I travel, I have to travel with my daughter. It is very expensive, I have to buy two round trip air tickets, car rental, food and a place to stay. I've put myself in debt. The judge insists I be present even if he cancels session and rebooks at a later date. So, can he have the law come to PA and lock me up? He's in AZ.
