Good morning,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. I'm afraid that I do not understand your question. Would you please rephrase it, and perhaps provide a bit more background information?

the child was born September 1983. I have paid off my previous obligations however, the German government are saying the due to the difference between the Mark and the dollar I owe more.

Hi,

Thanks for the clarification.

Quite simply, if the support was ordered by the German courts prior to the placement of the Euro, then the support would have been set out in German DM. And if you paid in US dollars, it was your responsibility to ensure that the money you paid was the equivalent of the amount owed in DM after the conversion of the money from dollars to DM.

While you certainly do not need to go to court to and reopen the support case, you will have to determine the shortfall of the payments based on the cost of conversion from dollars to DM and pay the remainder of the money to the German Government which is seeking to collect it from you.

You may reply back to me again if you have additional questions, and I will continue to assist you.
