1 Abandonment of marriage/child on Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:43 am


Arresto Menor
Good morning Atty, i hope u can really help me po kung ano po mga dapat gawin coz honestly po apektado na ako masyado in just thinking what best legal action to do po being so disadvantaged. My wife and i got married 2009 and have a 3 yr old child. Nawalan ako ng work yr 2012 so napilitan po ako maghanap sa ibang lugar and dahil jobless din po ang wife ko for being undergrad i thought she can concentrate sa anak namin. Oct 2012 problem started when my wife let her mom borrowed all our savings without my knowing pero nalugi sila, natural po cguro magalit ako but binaliktad nila ang issue na ako pa ang may kasalanan. Sa dswd nagawork ang byanan ko po at drector din po ng dswd in that region pinsan ng byanan ko kaya again without my knowledge and consent nakapagtrabaho cxa even no credintials. Even a single centavo wala po naging counterpart ang wife ko in all of expenses at never ko po giquestion ang bagay po na yon at di na rin kami nag away na uli. Jan 2013 bigla lang po nag paalam 2 days activies ng office nila out of town at kasama po pati rin sa dept. ng mother nya then untill now hindi na po cxa umuwi.

Atty every time po tatawag ako sa wife ko with regards sa naiwan nyan 3 yr old namin na anak ay parati cyang may alibi na puntahan or busy sila kaya di nya maasikaso ang anak namin. January when she left us at madalang lang masyado cya makipagcommunicate at cya na this time ang galit na galit for i dont know what reason. March 2013 she admited na di na siya mgbalik pa at bahala na daw ako sa anak ko.

Atty i tried seeking help sa dswd na rin mismo but they refuse to comment for the influenced ng byanan. A certain friend of mine na officemate ng wife ko and willing to testify if ever, told me na ang byanan ko mismo ang naninira sa akin at nagatulak or naga influenced sa wife ko po to abandoned us.

Atty what certain law po ang pwede ko magameet against my wife for abandoning our marriages and our son?

How can i obligue my wife to support our son not neccesarily putting the costudy on her?

Pwede ko rin po ba kasohan ang byanan ko for panonolsol sa wife ko para masira pagsasama namin?

Pls i need your advise atty which best to do. Pls

Reclusion Perpetua

In your case, since your wife abandoned your son, you may file indifference of parents under article 277 of the Revised Penal Code.

However, since your son is only 3 years old, the custody is with the mother because under the law, no child under seven years of age shall be separated from the mother, unless the court finds compelling reasons to order otherwise.”

Thank you po attyjioyce, nakakadepressed po lalo if after intentionally leaving my son and admittedly saying na di nya kailangan ang bata ay by law ay sa kanya parin ang custody atty. how about po sa marriage namin, pwd ko rin po ba cya ihadla? iniwan lang po ako ng ganon with no justifiable reason, only answer she can give ay basta ayaw na daw nya makisama sa akin. Ano po pwede kong gawin sbout it atty?
