The reason your relative was at the courthouse would likely be irrelevant. No att'y here could give you a fixed answer. If I were providing legal advice & counsel a starting point for me would be to review what had transpired to date. I urge your nephew have qualified att'y counsel right away and perhaps you can faciliate that. Know that if you reside in a somewhat remote area, a very few of us att'ys routinely make special arrangements to provide attorney counsel to such folks.

It is uncommon to be held in jail for contempt of court. Generally there are hearings requested the the spouse who is asking to get payments and the non-payer needs to show up to explain why the payments are missed. If you fail to show up to the hearing, a warrant can be issued for the arrest. Timelines depend on the severity and it is a good idea to get in touch with an attorney that is familiar with family court in that county.
