The court may order a peace officer to arrest the judgment debtor and bring the debtor before the court upon satisfactory proof that the debtor is leaving the state with intent to defraud the debtor’s creditors or is absconding. Upon being brought before the court, the judgment debtor may be ordered to enter into an undertaking with one or more sufficient sureties that the debtor will appear before the court when directed, and that the debtor will not, during the pendency of the proceedings, dispose of any portion of the debtor’s property not exempt from execution. In default of entering into the undertaking, the judgment debtor may be committed to jail.
