COMMENT: Hi Marty,
My husband owed $4,995 for child maintenance back in 2000 but fell off a roof and broke both feet and ended up in a wheel chair for a year, was in a coma for a few weeks, and as he wasn’t able to make a payment due to his condition they raised what he owed overnight to $17k, and now its $25k which they say is interest.
This means he cannot leave the country, passport revoked, hence l have to fly back and forth from the UK until we get my immigration sorted. Obviously l will not be giving up my UK passport.
REPLY: History repeats because humanity never changes. The Romans were hunting for taxes and introduced the passport to prevent people from traveling within the empire if they owed taxes. Nothing has changed in thousands of years. All you have to do is look at what they did before, and surely enough they will do it again. The only difference is that they were bronze.
