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?
