why in the state of texas, do they arrest the ncp for not showing up in court/non-payment of child support, and request a bond, only to let the ncp go? I went to court on a case in 1999. the ncp did not show up. the iv-d court set a bond of $2,000.00, for the ncp. he was on parole in 1999. a capias was issued. he was arrested again on another matter. it took 2 yrs. for the police to pick him up on the capias, for child support. and the sad thing about this is that they waited until he was working and deducting child support from his pay, before they picked him up. they held him about 2 days and let him go. they didn't even make him post the $2,000.00 bond. the states attorney told me that they have to let the ncp go, if they promise to come to court. what a joke!!! why bother? my time was wasted coming to court. he's not going to come to court and he has demonstrated that he will move residences and jobs to avoid paying child support of over $5,000.00 that he owes for the child who is 7, and suffers with asthma.
a capias for the arrest of a person owing child support is no less important than any other warrant for the arrest of a person. why do they also order the ncp to obtain medical insurance for the child and the ncp never does. what is this court system doing? I know of other states like illinois that will jail the ncp, put the ncp on work release,suspend the ncp's license, and require the ncp to post a bond to get out of jail. why not in texas? what can i do?
