Child Maintenance Poland/ Ireland

Hi My friend is polish and he was paying his ex partner maintenance for their child. She went to court and got his maintenance put up more than he can afford to pay so he just stopped paying. Don't come for me I know it's wrong and it's none of my business but he is wondering if Poland will come to Ireland looking for him. Has this happened to anybody else? Will they come and try find him or will they just wait until he returns to Poland to catch him?

Deadbeat Dads usually do get caught and end up in slammer till they cough up all they owe.

But do you know somebody personally that was removed from Ireland? Lots of people say this is the case but nobody seems to know anybody 🤷‍♀️

Very unlikely.

will they just wait until he returns to Poland to catch him?

Yes. Once he reappears in the tax system they will find him and put a lean on his salary. Plus he will have to pay off the overdue debt with interest. When they put up the maintenance it would have been wiser to just carry on paying what he could afford. The sensible thing is to contact the court now, find out which bailiff the debt is with and make arrangements with them to start paying something. Otherwise he will have a huge debt to clear.

@Atch
So if he has no intentions of returning to Poland he could possible avoid this you think?

If he is an dishonourable scumbag, I guess so.

Not sure about that. Foreign judgements can be executed by Irish courts. In most cases they're not simply because the Polish bailiffs don't have the English language skills to deal with it but in theory he could end up being pursued through the Irish courts.

Also, he may not intend to return to live in Poland but presumably he will want to visit his homeland at some point and he could find himself under arrest if his ID is checked and he's found to have an outstanding debt. Btw when a father stops paying the mother can apply for a maintenance payment from the authorities. If she does that, then the father's debt is to them. He has to repay what they've paid the mother. It's not a good situation to put yourself in if you're Polish, owing money to the government in any form. The mother can complete paperwork to say what she wants done about the debt and can specify whether she simply wants the debt collected or if she wants the father to go to jail.

Finally, there is a chance that he may want to have contact with his child in the future and if he completely tries to avoid his financial responsibility he'll find it hard to build bridges with the kid later.

I have heard that the EU is now working to make a grid system for all the countries like we have in the US and when ever stopped the cops will know about the warrants and make an arrest.

@OP,What kind of friend is he that will not care about his child?Deadbeat dads should be used as range targets for I care.
