I have had 2 kids (6 & 7 years of age) na sinusuportahan sa "legal" na wife (una).
Nagttrabaho po ako sa UAE, as F&B Supervisor, earning a gross of roughly 40,000 in Philippine peso. Yung cost of living sa Dubai, UAE may cost roughly 15,000 per month (transportation, board and lodging, food). I am sending my 2 children a regular amount of not less than 10,000 philippine peso a month as regular sustainance. Occassions where they need more, i send more as well - like during Xmas, etc.
Their mother do not know how to handle money wisely so I decided to do the savings part for my 2 kids on my own. Now, their mother is demanding a 30,000.oo peso sustainance for the kids + a house arguing that 10,000.00 does not fit in the needs for my 2 kids; for school, food, transpo - about the house, they do not rent, they are currently living on my parents house.
Being a father, I definitely am planning to build a house for those 2 kids, but obviously, something that may took years to be built - isa pang bagay na kailangan din pong pag-ipunan at ibawas sa buwanan kong sweldo.
Masyado pong persistent ang ina ng 2 kong anak for the amount that they are asking. Gusto ko po sanang malaman kung magkano po ba ang nararapat na isustento ko sa 2 anak. May anak rin po ako sa asawa ko ngayon, 2 taon gulang, and i reserve the 5,000.00 peso for him.
Gusto ko rin po sanang gumawa ng kontrata sa pagitan namin ng una kong asawa upang maging klaro at maiwasan ang aberya sa paghingi ng sobrang sustento ng una kong asawa. Posible po ba ito?
Iintayin ko po ang inyong suhestyon. Marami pong salamat.
