Default Re: Can I demand child support from father now in the USA

If you have legal counsel, you are certainly able to collect, this constant comment about needing the Hague convention simply is incorrect. The Hague convention makes it easier but that's not the only way to collect support

Don't believe Wenton2. The biggest concern in your situation is the cost to obtain a judgment and if you manage to obtain one, how to keep enforcement active. Unless he is a multi millionaire, it is unlikely to be worth the costs involved.

It does not matter that the Hague Convention is not available. Hague just makes it easier and free.

The potential bigamy charge will also help you. He can be jailed or deported for that.

All of these things above are low cost.
And they indeed are options.

If you can locate the low cost help GO for it! I would say!

It is obvious certain remedies do exist.
