Articles 195 and 196 of the Family Code enumerate the persons who are under obligation to support each other, thus: (1) The spouses; (2) Legitimate ascendants and descendants; (3) Parents and their legitimate children and the legitimate and illegitimate children of the latter; (4) Parents and their illegitimate children and the legitimate and illegitimate children of the latter; (5) Legitimate brothers and sisters, whether of full or half-blood; and (6) Brothers and sisters not legitimately related, whether of the full or half-blood, except only when the need for support of the brother or sister, being of age, is due to a cause imputable to the claimant’s fault or negligence.

On the other hand, the amount of support should be in proportion to the resources or means of the giver and the necessities of the recipient, pursuant to Articles 194, 201 and 202 of the Family Code:

Art. 194. Support comprises everything indispensable for sustenance, dwelling, clothing, medical attendance, education and transportation, in keeping with the financial capacity of the family.
The education of the person entitled to be supported referred to in the preceding paragraph shall include his schooling or training for some profession, trade or vocation, even beyond the age of majority. Transportation shall include expenses in going to and from school, or to and from place of work.
Art. 201. The amount of support, in the cases referred to in Articles 195 and 196, shall be in proportion to the resources or means of the giver and to the necessities of the recipient.
Art. 202. Support in the cases referred to in the preceding article shall be reduced or increased proportionately, according to the reduction or increase of the necessities of the recipient and the resources or means of the person obliged to furnish the same.
If you’re a parent, it is safe to assume that you would want the best for your child and you wouldn’t hesitate to provide adequate support. However, it’s unfortunate that when it comes to support for the common children (whether legitimate or illegitimate), so many fathers still fail (or worse, simply refuse) to provide adequate support. Whatever the reason is, and regardless of whether or not these reasons are correct, the problem became pervasive, so much so that Congress saw it fit to “criminalize” (only against fathers) the withholding of support in certain instances. Not everyone knows that this is covered under Republic Act No. 9262, otherwise known as the “Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act of 2004“.

I am planning to file a child support case to the father of my child. We are not married but my child uses the family name of her father. However, the father of my child has chronic kidney disease. He has been undergoing dialysis and medications since last year but he is still employed. He keeps on telling me that he cannot give support due to his illness but I have known lately that he has applied for a postpaid mobile plan and has even chosen an iPhone 5S for his new phone so I really don't believe that he has no extra funds to support our daughter. My question now is, is there a big chance that we will be able to get financial support from him despite his reason of having a kidney disease? Will it be worth the effort to file a case against him? I am worried that the court might take his side because I am the "more able" individual.

He can have his doctor give a medical certificate that he is indeed undergoing dialysis and requires expensive medication. Also, he can just say that the Phone5S was given to him or someone else is shouldering his postpaid plan. Just a heads up.

So will it still be worth the effort to file a case against him or I just have to let this be? It is so unfair...

You can consult a lawyer in your area. But if you ask me, it is unlikely you will win the case and get child support from him because of his current situation. He can capitalize on his sickness and simply tell the court that someone else is paying for his new phone.

Gud pm po. Seek lng po sna ako ng legal advice about sa anak ko 16years old. Kasal po ako sa ama nya but hiwalay na po kmi since 2011. May knya2 n din po kmi buhay. Ang concern ko lng po ay financial support nya s anak nmin. Ndi po sya regular na nagsusupport s anak nmin dhil dati po OFW po ako at di ko sya inoobliged. Pero ngaun po n jobless ako for almost a year humingi po ako ng tulong pra sa tuition fee ng anak nmin pero wala po sya bngay. Mga nkaraan taon ang bnbgay nya po ay 2000/month during school days pero minsan po lumiliban pa. Pag bkasyon po 1k a month nmn po. Ok lng po b kung ggwa kmi ng letter of agreement na ipapanotarized n lng nmin pra s child support pra wala po sya palya at may fixed amount n po sya n maibbgay n nrrapat lamang s legitimate nyang anak? Ska magkano po b ang halaga pede ko idemand sa knya? Ang 6000/month e kalabisan ba yun? Minimum wage earner po kc sya pero may mga part tym jobs pa po. Salamat po
