Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I apologize, your Optional Information and Already Tried sections did not appear when I picked up your post. Extradition generally is limited to criminal cases, not civil ones (but child support arrearages are criminal matters in some states and civil in others, hence my question) and is a formal request from one state to another to return a defendnat who has fled or is otherwise outside the jurisdiction of the requesting state.
In short, since there is no power in a civil case brought by a private individual to use the power of the state, you cannot be extradited to PA. Served and summonsed yes, extradited no.
Based upon your post, I do suggest that you consult with an attorney in PA about fighting the landlord's action against you, especially if there was an attempted unilateral modification of the agreement by the landlord. You may be able to retain an attorney to appear for you at the hearing withou you having to personally appear.
I hope this answers your questions. Please click Accept so that I may be credited for my assistance. Thank you and good luck.
