    They could have ordered jail up to 5 days if it was in the family court. If you were charged with failure to pay in a criminal court there may be a warrant for your arrest.

    The judge probably issued a bench warrant so the police can pick you up and bring you to court. Your probably going to need an attorney to avoid being put in jail. You really need someone to speak up for you.
