1 CHILD SUPPORT FATHER SIDE on Sat Mar 19, 2016 12:55 pm

Arresto Menor
I'm a Single Man working in abroad and I have a daugther with my exgirlfriend. My daughter uses my surname.

Every month I'm sending her the amount of 10,000 - 14,000.

Now My exgirlfriend demands me for 60% of my salary here for my daughter's financial support. Because she is complaining that I'm not sending my Daughter the right amount of support.

Questions:

1. Is this even possible? Example I'm earning 50,000 per month.

2. In this case wherein she uses my daughter to get money from me how can I defend myself against this abuse?

I answered the demand letter already that I cannot give the amount she is asking me. I hope you can give me some advise regarding this case.

Send what ur budget can. Ignore the letter that id useless. Support depends on ur capability and the child needs . no exact amount.

My exgirlfriend doesn't have work right now.
Another question is that do I have the rights to decide where my daughter should study?

Sad Sure NOT as much as 60 %. (Perhaps it could have been such if you had been married, so the support had been to the mother too, but now it isn't.)

BOTH parents are suppoused to support the child.

"2. In this case wherein she uses my daughter to get money from me how can I defend myself against this abuse? "
Sure.
Ex girlfriends are NOT entitled to support for HERSELF. Smile as many try.
You can just refuse to pay more than the corect amount. Plus see what I write about school fee.

"Another question is that do I have the rights to decide where my daughter should study?"
The mother have the custody so you don't have such right,
BUT you can negotiate about it , and have it as condition IF you decide to pay more than normal, which you seem to do now. (I know of a Filipino 14 persons family, who live of LESS than you send to your daughter...)
You can chose to pay such school DIRECT to avoid risking your ex snatch the money ment for school Smile

You were not married, so No.

(To take the custody from a single mother, she need to be found not suit as a parent, and unemployed is NOT such reason. (And even if she would, it isn't sure it would be you who get it.)

I don't know the mother, so I don't know how she would react, but I believe you better NOT try to take the custody, because then it's big risk the mother try to stop you as much as possible to see your daighter. Better NEGOTIATE to get as much VISITATION as possible, The mother seem to like money,so perhaps the she like an offer where she will get SAME amount in support to the daughter also when the daughter visit you...

Ok, I see.
Another question; is it possible that my brothers and sisters to file a demand letter to me for support? I'm just thinking that if this is possible the amount I give to my daughter will be lessen or will remain the same.

It's a question of your and the mother's capacity to support others. and if it become a legal case, then it depend of what the judge believe.
I don't know if children have priority over sibblings*. IF so you will LOSE by such document from your brothers and sisters, because then you have admited you have capacity to send them such amount Smile

*I don't know if there are any priority told by the law, but I know the law say you HAVE TO support under aged children (and wife when married, and old/disabled parents)
BUT concerning not old/disabled parents and sibblings you ONLY need to support them IF they have done their best to earn enough THEMSELVES. (The law is fuzzy though concerning up to which level.)
