I know many of you are worried about or have been Unlawfully detained/imprisoned for "non-payment"...
I suggest you show due diligence in your research efforts...
Paff v. Kaltenbach, 204 F.3d 425, 435 (3rd Cir. 2000) (Fourth Amendment
prohibits law enforcement officers from arresting citizens without
Allen v. City
of Portland, 73 F.3d 232 (9th Cir. 1995), the Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals (citing cases from the U.S. Supreme Court, Fifth, Seventh,
Eighth and Ninth Circuits)“by definition, probable cause to arrest can
only exist in relation to criminal conduct; civil disputes cannot give
rise to probable cause”;
Illinois v. Gates, 462 U.S. 213
(1983), therefore, no body attachment, bench warrant or arrest order may
be issued. If a person is arrested on less than probable cause, the
United States Supreme Court has long recognized that the aggrieved party
has a Cause of Action under 42 U.S.C. §1983 for violation of Fourth
Pierson v. Ray, 386 U.S. 547, 87 S.Ct. 1213
(1967). Child support is a civil matter and therefore, you cannot be
arrested for non-payment especially if there is no threat of harm..
