1 abandoned the kids and took my salary on Sun Mar 16, 2014 6:05 pm


Arresto Menor
Good day!
       I am a seafarer. my wife and I, not legaly separated but not in good terms. I have our kids with me and my sister is taking care of them when i'm not here. my wife decided to go to malaysia and  hoped to live there. but she's is my alotte and since she's not with the kids Iask her to give me the atm card ( alotte) before she left
( 8mths ago) but she refused. saying that was her right to have the alotte. My question is do i have the right to get that alotte back? or if not, Can I change my alotte for my next contract? and also can I have myself as my alotte (self allotment)?

Arresto Menor need fir you to get your alloment coz im sure she already spend your money..
You can change your allottee of course..if you dint want to include your wife on your allotment details you can do have an option for filing a self allottee or you can include your eldest child and other children to be your's up to you..since your children is under your custody at this time coz your wife abandoned you and your children you have the right to do it..and you can file a criminal case against your wife for that matter..

Another thing I am worried about. She still call the kids through skype or mobile. and I dont want to stop her for doing that coz right now the kids don't know anything yet. Now I'm worried that one day she comes back to the philippines and take older kid is 11 yrs old and the other one is 6 yrs old.
