i would like to seek advise for my friend's situation. he's been married to a girl for about 8 years now, 7 years of which, they have been separated (as per agreement between themselves), though they have 1 child. My friend has a new family now with 1 child. Due to threats from the wife (to cause disturbance with his current family), sometime in 2008, he was forced to leave his parents' home where his family (wife&child) were residing since they got married, though continued financial support for the child (and even the girl since she was living in their family home). The girl decided to leave by her own will by early 2008 and took the child with her, to live with her parents. April of this year,the girl has filed for an R.A. 9262 compliant against him, also demanding for support, though support is already being given (supplies,education,etc). Since September, the girl decided to restrict custody from the father with no just cause. It's very apparent that they wanted "COLD CASH" and really not "SUPPORT" for the child. According to sources, they're also planning to file for bigamy which is kind of dumb since the guy didn't have a 2nd marriage. In line with this, we also have proof that the woman has not been fit to be a wife and a mother, together with witnesses to her acts (chooses not to work for her family,hasn't taken care of her child and husband during the duration of their companionship,whenever she had work--would only sustain her personal needs and not help out in family/marital expenses). Also, she has had several boyfriends during the duration of all this, and even now, she has a new boyfriend. The guy has just been served with a "RESOLUTION" since he came late to the last supposed meeting/hearing. My friend is in a very tight spot.. incapable of hiring a lawyer due to high fees, so we're hoping to seek help and advice here.
