1 Child support on Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:11 pm

I'm a single mom. The father of my child and I are not in good terms. I'm a resident of a foreign country yet still a filipino citizen. I gave birth to my son here in a foreign country. My son used my surname because the father of my child didn't want to sign the birth certificate and I only have 30 days to file his registration here in this country.
My questions, Can I ask financial support from his father ( he is in the Philippines) ?
What rights can my child claim for the abandonment of his father to him? He said "no" for financial support. But under the family code of the Philippines, what legal actions can I take as a mom?

The courts in the Philippines do not have jurisdiction outside its borders. You have to file in the Philippines.
