I have been asked by the Assistant Register to turn to your office for these answers.
Who in the Family and Probate court is responsibly to maintain records and information on people who are sent to jail for contempt when it doesn't involve the Department? Can your office provide our show with data, on how many people have been sent to jail (YTD) for contempt?
(FYI) In a recent letter, you directed me to the Department of Revenue, Please be aware that I have spoken with the Departments spoke person Robert Bliss, and he stated they do not keep this information. I have spoken with Department of Prison, DMV, and your staff, each have refered this back to you.
In a most recent letter, The Department is quoted as saying "when a non custodial parent fails to comply with an order of the court, the court may find the non custodial parent in contempt. In some cases, depending on the circumstances of the case, the court will impose a suspended sentence. If and when the non custodial parent is brought before the court again for failure to comply with the order of the court, the judge may order the NCP up to a 179 day sentence".
My viewers have asked, When this happens who maintain those records?
Thank you for your prompt response.
