How can I file a case against the father of my son for non support? It’s going to be his first time to support his son after 6 years. He’s a seafarer and just boarded the ship last May 2012. My son is illegitimate and he’s father name is not on his birth certificate.

He promised me that starting this year he will send us his financial support. But when he boarded the ship he said that he needs to pay a flight bond of USD 700 for 3 months. Is there such a thing if you’re new to the shipping agency? He said he’s with UPL now MV Aida if I remember correctly. I was told I could file a case against him (RA9262 –for non support) at POEA or OWWA but I don’t know how to start. He also owe me some money that was for our son’s tuition fee but until he has not paid it.

Please give me the procedure and where to go please…

Thank you for your help.

if he didn't sign the birth certificate, imo, your best remedy is to file a civil case for acknowledgment and support

he did sign an affidavit of paternity but it's not yet notarized.

i don't recommend that it be notarized because he will not be present. you can be made liable for falsification of public document.

but you can still use that document as evidence of acknowledgment
