Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
This is a bit complex but I will do my best to address each point. How long ago was your boyfriend in front of the judge?
When is this extension supposed to have been put in place, at the end of the 14th, or later on?
Which he paid, correct?
I am also unclear as to why you wish to file against the agent--do you believe this person intentionally and knowingly arrested when he was aware that your boyfriend was current?
Let me go down the list here based on your concerns.
There is a misconception that the state has to offer a payment plan in situations where the party is unable to pay. That is false. While most courts, states, and agents tend to be reasonable and attempt to work with the parties, the DO NOT have to. Suing them over filing to offer a payment plan will not work. They are at times very ignorant, that is true, but they do not have to be flexible--if there is a court order in place, they can collect on it.
Now, as far as having an Income Withholding Order, they can collect only the amount listed under order, and unless the order expressly states that they are unable to lock all of the funds, they are free to do so. It is up to your boyfriend to argue that part of the funds is for his personal needs and debts which cannot be removed. A 'purge payment' can be ordered if your boyfriend is behind, even if for a day, and likewise, a warrant issued. Typically that is very extreme unless and only unless your boyfriend a has a history of non-payment. Does he?
That is correct, he can request a new officer and file a grievance with the supervisor. Being unreasonable with no basis can cause the department to assign someone else, or even have the supervisor personally take over the case to work with your boyfriend directly.
