1 Child Support on Wed Oct 26, 2016 2:27 pm


Arresto Menor
I have a friend who isn't legally separated from his wife. But they don't live together anymore. His wifeleft him for another man and she left her kids with him. Now the husband (my friend) found someone else, his ex gf which he met when he and his wife were still together. He didn't know that he fathered a child with his ex. The expenses and support from the wife were smooth sailing at first, this was before she found out that her husband and his ex gf got back together. After she found out about the relationship, that's when things started to go awry. She didn't want to provide child support anymore. She wants the husband to pay for everything, from food to tuition to school supplies and school bus. All she wants to shoulder was the maid. And that is because she need the maid to wash and press her clothes. Which the maid does at the husband's house. The husband agreed. Now, she found out that the maid washes 1 or 2 clothes of the gf which she wears when she stays at the husband's house. She said that she'll pull out the maid and won't shoulder any of the expenses anymore. So the husband said that if that's the case, then she's gonna have to shoulder 1 kids school expenses, and that is from tuition down to school bus. She refused and said that since the children are staying with him, it's his responsibility to pay for everything. Does my friend have a case here? Isn't it the mother's responsibility too to shoulder at least 1 of the kids' expenses? She has a good paying job. She's a project manager at one of the BPO companies in the Philippines. She was even able to buy a car for everyday use, which she applied for after the separation and stated on the application that she was single. Is there a way for my friend to force his wife to provide child support?
