Re: Jurisdiction for an International Custody and Child Support Case
What is clear is that until the child comes to the US and is here long enough to gain residency, all legal actions regarding the child will be according to VN law. There is no US limitation on you filing for custody of your child, though several other barriers may be presented. Likely you are best to wait out an appearance in the US or hire a VN lawyer.
Teach a man to fish, you feed a village. Give a man a fish, the ever growing village demands free fish. We will now spend trillions on social services and SSI for people who don't know how to fish.
