Your court order states that you could be tested by hair sample. My advice is for you not to drink and follow the guidelines of your probation. Whether it is likely or not that you would be subjected to a hair sample test is something I cannot answer. I think the more pertinent question should be "is it possible?" The answer to that question is yes. Therefore, don't take the chance. Don't drink on probation.

Before you are required to come to respond or do anything in GA, it must first be established that the GA court has personal jurisdiction over you. The statute that governs personal jurisdiction in interstate child support cases is known as the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA). UIFSA has been adopted by every state, so a lawyer in New York would be able to tell you if you need to make an appearance in GA.

You should hire an attorney as the other answers suggest. If the warrant is issued, you will leave the courtroom under arrest. You have rights that you need to be aware of as the case moves forward. Hopefully this case will end at the pre-warrant hearing. If not, this will be the beginning of the process.
