I got behind in child support in Ohio and there was a court date set for me to explain myself. My job relocated me to FL before the court date and I missed. Now I have a bench warrant for failure to appear and I can't return to OH. I can afford to pay 5-6 payments or retain an attorney in OH to try to get the warrant turned into a purge and pay that. I do not see the warrant in the Clerk's system online however and my fiance recalls The Court stating that "as long as the warrant is in their court it is a misdemeanor and if it goes to the Sheriff it can be a felony". Please advise me on what would be the best option for me to take; 1. Retain an attorney and sacrifice the CS that money could go to. or 2. Pay the money to CS and hope they remove the warrant without an attorney.
