Hi. I'm new to this forum and I have only joined to help a friend. My friend is a Filipina mother of 2 young boys. One is 7 yrs old and the other is 4yrs. She is currently working in Saudi Arabia as a house worker. She has recently split up with her husband because he cheated on her several times, he doesn't provide for her and her children and he is usually drunk and under the influence of drugs. She even found out that he did drugs in front of the children. So she wants to get full custody of her children, but she can't go and stay in the Philippines for as she is the only one that provides money for her children. So the question is can she raise this case in court without being present and could she win the case. Lastly how much are the typical costs for hiring a lawyer for this kind of case.
Thanks in advance for the help and advice.
