Hi, I am a US citizen traveling to Poland for work and have a question about Child Support. I have a child who is Polish and resides in Poland. I pay child support through the American court system (as decided by the mother who resides in Poland and is Polish, my point being, she wanted to go through the American courts for support). She then started an extra support case against me in Poland which I was not present at to defend myself and got she granted an huge order which she then tried to register through America. They told her no as an order was already in place and was being respected. She then started yet another case in Poland in a different district which I also could not be present at and received another large judgement, making 2 large judgments in 2 different areas of Poland.
My question is this, if I go to Poland will I be arrested for non-payment of support even though I am current and always pay the valid order from the US?
While you should probably check with a lawyer, I can certainly tell you that one Pole I know hasn't paid anything at all in the way of child support for two years and has drawn no interest at from the Polish court.
