Hello,

Typically when you owe child support your passport is suspended. Even if this is not the case if you have never paid anything and a warrant has been issued on the matter you may not be allowed to leave the country or may not be allowed back in.

Hello,

You may be permitted to leave, but keep in mind if there are warrants issued on this case they could prevent you from reentering the US.
