Is a Spanish Custody and Child Support degree valid in the United States? I am a US citizen (so are children) and the father is a Dutch citizen residing in the US. At the time of separation we were residing in Barcelona, Spain and court case was in Spain. Please advise. Thank you.

The courts in the United States will give full credit to a foreign decree in most situations. You should consult with an attorney in your area with the documents to determine what the circumstances you face. A Spanish decree will most likely be upheld.
