almost 2 years ago -
i met and fell in love with a nice cornish boy / man...
today i am raiseing his child on my own in america.
he / his dominateing mum turned out to not be so nice after all.
does anyone know anything about international child support ?
my son and i are really struggeling to make ends meet and although he's promised to send a little help here and there -
so far we've seen nothing.
seriously nothing.
not even a christmas gift - but i won't get into all that...
anyhoo -
i'm working with the american system of freind of the court but it feels like a really really high hill to climb at the moment.
any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance

diskonize,


I have a girlfriend I work with that has been going through the same deal for almost 12 years now. Finally, about 2 years ago she filed for abandonment and her (get this) ex boyfriend adopted her daughter. Yes they had broken up but, he adores her daughter and is the only father she has ever known.

I am sorry I have no advice. I know nothing about international child support. I am not even certain anything of that sort exists.

I hope you will stick around and join us here at SFV. There are some very great people here. Many of us.. no.. all of us, have really high hills to climb.. they just come in different forms.

Welcome again!

Hi and welcome.

I know there is a international cooperative partnership system in place. I read about it a couple years ago.

I will do a search and post what I find.

Good luck to you.

It is late here and my brain is tired.
this is a Canadian government site I found.
http://www.justice.gc.ca/en/ps/sup/e...rview.html#iso

It discusses the international process. Perhaps if you were to research some of the terms and agreements they mention you will be able to find something that helps you there.
-Interjurisdictional and international enforcement
-Reciprocity arrangements
