support is based upon the income of the father.

Totoo yung sinabi niya na kung kakasuhan mo siya hindi siya makakaalis.

You have to prove that your husband is earning so much and is providing only so little.

THe law does not say the exact percentage but only states what is covered under support.

There is no exact amount nor percentage. If you will say 50% that is regarding mana and your husband needs to pass away first. Also, if you both legally seaprate and/or anull the marraige then pwede din distribution of remaining properties.

All that being said. If the support provided is not enough. Mag-work ka na and raise enough money to bring him to court so that you will not be dependent with the support you need from him.

Your intention to raise your kids personally is commendable but times are trying and even the mother needs to work.

You can still bring the father to court but be ready to suddenly suffer a cut from support. This is the reasonw hy I want you to look for work first. This will balance the scales.

Good luck

Can I ask LNG po.aren't we entitled to get the 80% of his earnings wherein fact I'm his legal wife?He is an officer in a ship he is working so reality check he is earning much.I'm not against him having another gf because I cannot force him to go back to me when he doesn't want to.I just want him to support his 3 children.can't my children have the right for financial support from their father?can't the law tells us how many percent can children gets from their father's income?

Him being a seaman adds risk he can't be forced to pay.

Does the ship belong to a PHILIPPINE company or foreign?

If foreign, the Philippines don't have jurisdiction over his salary, so can't force him, except he risk jail IF he enter the Philippines.
So if you go to court it's risk he just don't bother what the Philippine court say.
Some countries cooperate though,
and it's possible a foreign company cooperate, because they want good contact with the Philippines.
