My husband's exwife marrried to a German and brought their son to Germany 10 years ago. For past 10 years, she has been kept asking money from my husband for sending her son to expensive private schools, etc. She intimidated my husband if he doen not give her money, her German husband will help her to send him to the prison. My husband, for "pleasing" her, has been kept working over hard and now is very sick so does my younger child; however, we do not have any savings because his exwife keeps asking money...Can I sue his exwife and her husband in the U.S. although they live in Germany?

She has been asking money two much more than what she and her son need. She ruins my family, not only my huband's health but my young children health, lives and human rights. We do not have enough money to take care of family's health and living expense. Can police force her to ruturn money she has been asking from my huband?
Dear Customer,no police cannot force her to return the moneyYour husband will have to go to the family court for that.The burden of proof and the financial risk for suing is entirely ith himShe will say that he gave it out of his own free will and he would have to prove otherwise. Also in German Law she can claim that the money has all been spent.If I have helped please click accept thank you
Can I sue her for ruining my family and children's right? I got all the proof.
Dear Customer,noShe can only be sued for paying the money back, but ruining one`s family is not a claim to be filed
But the money she asked is our family mutual money. It includes my share and my children's. She asked without letting me know and illegally got my share and my children's health expense. Why I don't have right to sue her?
In odrder to sue you need a basis for a claimThere is only a certain number of these and what you wrote me unfortunately does not give a basis for a claimIf your question is answered please click acceptthank you

There are certain basis for claims in German LawYou do not have a claim witout a basis for a claimFor example:§ 433 BGB the right of the seller to demand money from the buyer§ 823 BGB the right of an injured person to demand compensation and so on ithout a basis for a claim you canot go to courtIf I have answered your Question please click acceptthank you
§ 823 BGB the right of an injured person to demand compensation
She injured me and my children's live, can I demand compensation according to German family law?
No believe me yours is not a case for § 823 BGB !No unfortunatly there is no way to demand compensatin for that under German LawIf your question is answered please click accept
