I have not researched your jurisdictional inquiry but suggest that the home county of residence for the father would be a good start. Has the child lived in any state in the US for six months? I would file there, if so. Stay well.

Child support is generally filed in the location that the parent with the child resides. That order can be enforced in States that have reciprocal treaties. However, if no child support order has been previously entered, a child support action may be filed in the location where the non-custodial parent resides.

I would need more information to answer your question. A United States court for the state that your child's father lives in very likely has power over your child's father (personal jurisdiction), but I need more information to be able to tell whether the court has power over this legal issue, child support. Give me a call, make an appointment to come see me, and let's get moving on this for you. No charge for the first office visit. I know people worry about how expensive a lawyer is, so I am careful to be as inexpensive as I can for my clients. Before you spend a dime, you will know how much this is likely to be.

It would be possible if you already had a Paternity case in California, but difficult. You might be allowed to testify in the case by telephone. You would best consult, if not retain an experienced Family Law Attorney in the area where the case was filed. If there was no case filed, then it may be far more difficult, if not impossible, to seek Child Support in California from another country.
