My boyfriend has a court date today for his child support. when he went on line to see how much it was he saw there was a warren

Asked over 1 year ago - Du Bois, PA

He saw there was a warrant for him due to a no show at a different county. He has never received any information on a court date for this. If he gos to jail today, he will not be able to go to work, he will not be able to go to his National Gard days and he is taking classes on line for school. He will not be able to pay for his bills. What do we do? Please help
