Hi, my husband is...

Hi, my husband is a permanent resident of the US and owes child support in Germany. He is unable to work and therefore cannot pay. What is the worst case scenario if he does not make child support payments overseas to Germany? He doesn't even have the money to hire an attorney overseas to represent him, let alone a plane ticket to fly over there and appear in court in person.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Pennsylvania

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No thank you

Ok, thank you. I realize that we need to contradict, which we will, but what is the absolute worst case scenario if he didn’t respond and didn’t pay?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
The reason I ask is because to my knowledge, Germany is not a country the US has a treaty with in enforcing child custody and support regulations.

Yes, there is no treaty but it can be enforced
