My boyfriend is in the tarrant county jail for contempt of court for non payment of child support. He saw the judge and he has to pay $1000 to get out. I havent been able to come up with all of the money. Is there any other ways of getting him out? He said he goes back in front of judge wednesday if he doesnt have all money they will move foward. What does that mean? I will have $600 of it Friday. Will they except partial payments?
You go to his court hearing and try to help him any way you can. They may be willing to cut him a break on his cash bond. He needs to ask for appointed counsel.
