A state lawmaker introduced a bill that, if enacted, would forbid those who owe two months of child support from exiting the country.
Assemblyman César Adrián Corona said the proposal would amend the State’s Civil Code in order to prohibit violators through the National Institute of Immigration from leaving Mexican soil.
The measure would mandate judges to request Mexican authorities to enforce the law of Immigration.
The lawmaker said the Mexican Supreme Court has ruled as constitutional the restrictions to alimony debtors from leaving the country. The Supreme Court has also ruled that paying child support makes sure children have an adequate quality of life and their rights, as well as an obligation to the payee.
