1 support if the husband is still living at home on Mon Jan 06, 2014 10:10 am


Arresto Menor
thank you for forums like this. as with my current situation, i cannot afford to pay a lawyer and i do not pass the requirements for a free lawyer.
Me and my husband are both employed with middle income salaries. We have 2 children, 20 and 16 yrs old respectively, my eldest was forced to work when my husband starting not to give full support for us. My youngest is in college. My husband is paying for the tuition fee of my youngest and 20% of our rent. All of the rest I cover (utilities, my son's everyday allowance and school needs, groceries, gas, etc. All the basic needs of my children he does not take part of (no father duties non financial as well). It is always very difficult to ask more from him as it always ends up him 'nanunumbat' that i have my own salary.
i always end up with loans.last month, he informed me that he will no longer give the partial rent money as he decided on his own to buy a property. please advise on my legal rights for the rightful support he should be giving. What steps can i take to force him to give appropriate support for us?can i use this as grounds for legal separation if he continues to refuse? thank you.

send a demand letter for support and threaten him that you will file a case of economic abuse.
