this is for gal fees her husband was to pay . the judge changed their agreement and my daughter does not have any money
The purpose of holding someone in jail subject to a purge bond is to make sure that the bond gets paid. I don't see anyway out of them paying the fee. Perhaps a family member can pay for her and she can pay that family member back.
The only way to get out after a purge bond has been set is for the entire amount of the bond to be paid. If your daughter wants to get out before the year sentence is served, she will need to pay the amount due. Anyone can pay the amount due. It may be worth paying the amount yourself to get her out of jail and then having her pay you back.

Someone will need to help her out. The contempt must be purged by the payment of the fees owed. She might have some type of remedy to pursue against her husband after she deals with the present contempt matter. Explaining what is meant by "the judge changed their agreement " might help as to whether she has any remedies against her husband. Whose "agreement" was changed? Do you mean between the parties or do you mean a previous court order was modified?
All responses to questions asked here are discussions of general principles of law. They neither create an attorney-client relationship nor should they be relied upon in making any legal decision. To obtain legal advice meet with an attorney of your choosing and have them fully review all of the facts of your case.
As previously stated, a purge clause is a mechanism that is used to obtain one's release after being held in contempt by the court. She has two choices. She or someone on her behalf can pay the purge amount, or she can serve her sentence. Please do not consider this as legal advice. An attorney should discuss this matter with you and your daughter after all facts are explained. Additionally, any comments should not be construed as creating any attorney-client relationship.
