will mexico give me asylum to avoid prosecution for back alimony

will mexico give me asylum to avoid prosecution for back alimony or will they enforce U. S. state alimony support
Thanks for your question.This is a US civil debt.Mexico is notoriously for not enforcing such civil disputes.There is no criminal issues here so asylum doesn't apply.But Mexico would not enforce a foreign civil judgment for alimony. If you were seeking to avoid paying this would be a great option to do so.

Same question if I was in british virgin islands
That might not be a good choice.They have adopted foreign judgments law here.It might be collectible by your ex using this law.
