1 child support on Wed Jun 27, 2012 11:23 pm


Arresto Menor
hi, need some advise on whats best to do in this matter.
My husband and I separated 6 years ago, 2006, ( he had extra marital affairs and had 2 children) our son was 9 years old then.
His financial support continued for less than a year, then discontinued it when he resigned from his job and tried his luck to apply and wait for a work abroad. I was working abroad already when he resigned from his job. I left our son under the care of my family.
I assumed all the financial responsibilities for our son from then on, he asked for understanding coz he didn't have work, and promised me once he gets a new job he will help me with our son's financial needs.
2009 he landed a job abroad, and up until now, but since then he never have given any financial support for our son.
Several times i asked him, but he always had excuses.
My son and I are now living abroad, he is continuing his high school studies here with me.
My question, what legal action can i do, or is there any legal action i can do to make him fulfill his financial duties and obligations to our son?
Where or what office or department will I go to re this matter?
Can i make alegal action thru our embassy where i am situated right now?
A friend once told me, that I can try to make complain or report regarding this issue in POEA and POEA can do some legal actions for the child support i was asking or worst he can be deported back to Phils? Is there any truth to this?
What is best to do?

an actual case may not prosper because you and your child don't actually reside in the philippines anymore. there would be territorial issues.

try sending a complaint through owwa. they sometimes contact the other party for you
