I am here in this forum to seek legal advice for a friend. Her mother recently contacted me and told me the details, being a student with no great knowledge about law. I came here to share her story.
Her father, as we may all call "batugan", he doesn't really do much anything to support his 4 children, two of which are female minors. His ex wife, not legally since they are not divorced, is having issues with women her husband is bringing home.
She really doesn't mind that, having she already found a new love. But the thing is, her husband is not supporting their 4 children. Today, as of writing this message, their house's electricity have been cut off since about 4 days ago. Their daughter, which is a very close friend of mine, is telling stories on how she hears his father have sex with various women. There is no doubt that these children despise their father.
I would like to ask what is the best thing to do? The mother is living and working outside the country, and she tries her best to support them.
They are legally married, but not divorced.
