Can a writ of bodily attachment in Florida be enforced or pursued in Alabama? It's for a contempt of court non payment of child
I was unable to pay a purge amount for child support. Now I have moved to another state to be my mom's caregiver. I am worried the writ may be enforced or pursued here.
My Mom is 100% disabled. If I'm not here, she will have to return to a facility

Yes, the attachment/order of contempt can be pursued in another state. Each state is required to give full faith and credit to the laws of other states, and by extension the orders enforcing those laws. The process may take a bit longer due to your location in another state, but it can be pursued. You should consult with an attorney and the jurisdiction that issued the writ to further understand your rights before they writ is executed.
