Under Polish law, is an absent parent entitled to claim an income from their child?!?!

I am looking for some general feedback, I will get some firm details in a few days.

An individual who works in the UK, is married here and has a child, has returned to Poland for a holiday.

On arriving in Poland, they find several letters at their previous address "court papers"

These papers I am told say that this persons father, who left the family when the child was 12, is now claiming - though courts in Poland - an income form the child.

From a UK point of view this sounds impossible - can it be the case in Poland?

If / When I get the "Court Papers" I will post more, any initial thoughts would be helpful.

Yes, it can happen.

There was a feature in Gazeta Wyborcz a while ago about the hardship it sometimes causes. You need to take advice from a good lawyer on the particular issues of your case.

Speak to a lawyer. It is indeed possible for a parent to claim support from their child but given that the parent abandoned the child, the child might be able to use that to avoid the need to pay.

Hello Adrian,
He can claim the alimony but you have strong arguments to deny this claim. Who received the court papers?
We can help you if you wish -
