What are your options if a warrant is issued for your arrest in Texas for non-payment of child support? We're going to ask Austin attorney Sam Bassett in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.
If there's a warrant for your arrest, you oftentimes have to post a bond in the amount of the delinquency. Obviously, I think in these situations, it's best to get a lawyer once you find out you have a warrant for your arrest for child support, and see if that lawyer can communicate and reach a settlement with the AG's office to pull the warrant for a payment for a sum of money. We don't have a debtor's prison, so you can’t be put in prison indefinitely for lack of child support, but you can certainly be arrested and held for a number of days.
