Immigration Issues/If a German born mother gives birth in

Advertisement


Question
If a German born mother gives birth in Germany and gets a German court order baring the daughter from leaving Europe (visiting the United States before her 18 birthday) because she does not want to deal with a child custody issue in US family courts with the American father? Will the US State Department prohibit her daughter from getting a US passport, before her 18 birthdays, if the German mother request that? The German mother is a naturalized US citizen and this is why her daughter that is a US citizen. The German mother moves back to the United States, and gives custody of her daughter to relatives in Germany. Can she still get a US court order to have the American father pay child support (he lives in a US State that has a child support treaty with Germany). Under a German court order he is prohibited from seeing his daughter before her 18 birthdays.

Answer
Sorry dear, I am an Immigration attorney and I think you need a family lawyer to consult with.  However, I do feel that being herself a USC and the daughter a USC the mother should be able to get child support.  

Please do consult a family lawyer on the issues.

Best wishes,
