1 child support on Thu Jun 09, 2011 3:54 pm

My husband is a US Immigrant and been there for about 8 years now.We are married here in the Philippines and we have 3 children. For the past years, we have problems with regards to his financial support for us. He could not send us his obligation regularly/monthly because according to him, he has to pay for a lot of things there, etc.. We haven't been in good terms for sometime now, so I already told him that we will go on separate ways. Much as I wanted to file an annulment, I dont have the means to do it, so I just want us to have a certain agreement about our separation. Now, my main concern are my childrens welfare. I want to ask if I can send him a demand letter for support so that he will really do his obligation regularly? I just want to let him realize that I am serious with all these matters regarding my childrens sake. Lately, he has been avoiding me by not answering my calls. And I am so confused what to do next. Need advice. Thanks.

does he vacation here?

you can send him a demand letter. it will show you are serious, but he might just ignore it also.

from here, all you can do is file a case for economic abuse under ra 9262, but it will be later archived if he is not here.

that's basically one of my dilemma, he doesn't want to come home to us. I have already sent him a demand letter, still waiting for any response from him. I would like to ask if there is a possibility if I can contact his employers there where he is working, and probably discuss the problem with them and ask for their assistance regarding the matter. Would you think it will do any good? Thanks...

it's not the kind of remedy that a lawyer would use. it will surely embarrass him, but no guarantee it will have effect.

you can phrase it that you are inquiring whether the company has a morality clause in their handbook.

you mean I can still contact his employers and inquire about the morality clause of the company in relation to my problem? is their a guarantee that they would entertain my inquiry?
i also would like to ask how much child support can i demand from him, we have 3 kids who all goes to school. from what i know, it should be based on the needs of each one. is there a computation for it based on his earnings or it will just vary from what we would agreed upon?

you have to make an honest computation of the needs of the children and deduct how much you are able to contribute. you can use as models the computations used by Australia and other countries. you can find them on the net.

i have to caution that writing to his employer is a tactic used by some people, but as a lawyer, I cannot endorse it. you will have to decide on your own. if you do, i caution that you should write it in such a way that the concern is his violation of company rules, not just to embarrass him.

thanks for your advices...truthfully, I really don't want to go into that extreme option of talking to his employers. I still have that respect for him out of the years we have been together and obcourse because of our children. I just really want him to cooperate with me with regards to his obligation to his children.
Another question, how can I contribute to the financial needs of my children when I am not employed right now. I've been a housewife all the time he has been there, it was our agreement then.

you can check at the NSO whether he reported it at the philippine embassy. you can also write to our embassy there.

I was adviced by my cousin living in the US to file for a child & spouse support in the US Embassy here in the country. I want to ask if this is possible? Is there an international child support enforcement law here in our country? I reserched and found out that the US doesnt have a reciprocity with our country to collect child support. What can I do to forego with my plan to file a case of support? What are my best option for this?
I also would like to know if it would help much to my case if I hire an immigration lawyer. How much does it cost to hire one?

unfortunately, there is no international child support law. the only way i can think of is for you to get legal representation in the US to sue him for support. there may be a us based ngo or advocacy group that you can find to help you
