Resolved Question:

My ex lives in Denmark and I stay in Britain. If I don't pay child support can they do anything to me. I don't get to see my children and they want it back dated. Where do I stand?

Thank you for your question.
The UK courts will recognise a child maintenance order from Denmark. The order can be registered in Scotland for enforcement in Scotland by way of attachment of money or property or arrestment of wages. This is under legislation for reciprocal enforcement of maintenance orders between countries.
This applies whether or not you see the children; that would be treated as a separate issue.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
