My Mexican wife deserted me...
My Mexican wife deserted me and returned to Mexico in 2003 with my daughter, without approval. We were married in the UK and I divorced her in the UK by serving papers based on disertion and child abduction. Which were sent to Nexico . The divorce was granted as a result.My child is now over 18.
Last month I was served papers by a Mexican court for child maiteinance claims. Does she have any validity?

Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

I am afraid that it is indeed a valid claim and the eventual Order can be enforced here in the Uk (after some considerable effort)

Please ask if you need further details

Many thanks Clare. Although its disconcerting that I was denied access to my child's upbringing after the mother had taken her out of the country unlawfully 16 years ago, and now my daughter is over 18 a retrospective case for maintenence can be filed by the mother.

Now that changes things a little - the over 18 part that is

If she is over 20 it is unlikely that the Uk Courts would be willing to enforce an Order
