I have been drafting a guide for Child Support because me and my ex-wife had been separated for 4 years now. I have been giving support for my kids (70% of my income), however, we never really drafted any document to prove it. Since reading (and thoroughly studying) the Violence Against Women and their Children Act, I decided to have a proper Child Support Agreement to cover my ass, just in case.

If you’re a parent, it is safe to assume that you would want the best for your child and you wouldn’t hesitate to provide adequate support. However, it’s unfortunate that when it comes to support for the common children (whether legitimate or illegitimate), so many fathers still fail (or worse, simply refuse) to provide adequate support. Whatever the reason is, and regardless of whether or not these reasons are correct, the problem became pervasive, so much so that Congress saw it fit to “criminalize” (only against fathers) the withholding of support in certain instances. Not everyone knows that this is covered under Republic Act No. 9262, otherwise known as the “Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act of 2004“.

If you'd like, I could send you the copy of the Child Support Guide I've been working on and see if it would fit your needs.

Dapat ba sagutin lahat ng tatay yung tuition? Supporting the kids is both responsibility of the mother and the father. Here’s how I calculate the support that I give to my son from a former marriage, I give for the basic needs equal to whatever is the monthly minimum wage. I pay 50% of the tuition fee. And guess what, my ex wife is still not happy about it. We both earn above 100k a month.

Unregistered313 Hi, would just like to ask because my younger brother has been asking advice.

He and his legal wife are planning to separate and he needs to provide support. They have 2 kids. But his wife said that what he earns now will not be enough to support them, in fact, magkukulang pa daw. Is it legal or possible that the mother will demand an amount more than his earnings? Even if the wife takes 80% of his salary, I think that it is more than enough to cover their necessities. But the wife says otherwise. He has no problem giving that amount (70-80% of his earnings) but I think it is a bit too much. How can he pay for his own needs if all of his salary (which is kulang pa daw) goes to her? If it helps, his salary is 40k/month.

Just wanted to ask if it is legal for the wife to demand that way.

Re: Child Support, Philippines - (an estimate on how much)

I am an ofw here in Dubai living together with my brother who was seperated to to his wife for more than 8 years.

Pareho na silang may sariling pamilya but they have 2kids( 1st year high school and grade 5). Nasa hipag ko ang mga bata. Before umalis ang kapatid ko para mag ibang bansa nagkaroon silang agreement s harap ng abogado na need ng kapatid q magsupport financially sa 2 ko pamangkin ng tig 1k. Lately nagdemand ang ang hipag ko na kailangan nia ng mas malaki support dahil maghihigh school na at gusto n sa private school ipasok yung panganay nila which is di naman kayang isupport ng kapatid q dahil sa may 4 pa ciang anak n kailangan din nia suportahan sa present niang kinakasama. To tell you honestly di naman kalakihan ang kita ng kapatid ko dito,merchandiser po ang trabaho nia sa supermarket at ang laki din ng expenses dito. Ngaun po nakareceived ang nanay q ng subpoena na nagdedemand na magbigay ng 10k n support ang kapatid q sa anak nila.

Wala naman ako kinakampihan sa kanila dahil ang concern ko ay ang mga pamangkin ko. Pero sa estado ng trabaho ng kapatid ko alam ko na di talaga nia kaya ibigay ang 10k monthly. Samantalang ang hipag ko po ay may mas magandang trabaho sa call center, maayos n bahay, at maalwan ang pamumuhay kasama ng kanyang kinakasama. Di naman po lahat ng nasa ibang bansa ay kumikita ng malaki lalo na dito sa Dubai. Wala na nga po halos natitira sa amin para lng mapadala sa pinas.

Ano po ba ang pwedeng laban ng kapatid ko sa ganitong sitwasyon?
Maraming salamat po.

Unregistered The tuition is 60k per YEAR.
Salary is 90k per MONTH.
Thus, enough

Re: Child Support, Philippines - (an estimate on how much)

Hi, I’m a 16 years old teenage mom and I’m from the Philippines. I just want to ask, will I get any child support from the baby’s father if the baby’s father is also at a minor age- 17 years old. If yes, how and how much?

Re: Child Support, Philippines - (an estimate on how much)

Hi I have an 8 year old son who has Cerebral Palsy and the dad is working in Saudi Arabia, he is giving support but very inconsistent and would only range from 2000 PH to 2500 PH A MONTH. We are not married but my son is acknowledge by him which means my son has his last name. His needs are expensive since he is special which means at 8 he still uses diapers. He also has 2 meds for maintenance. I have been reading the thread about child support but I have not read of someone who has a condition like my son. and it says 20 to 25% of the dads salary but how about if the child needs more because of his condition? and since he is married now does his wife has the say of how much he can give for support for our son? I would really appreciate if someone can answer this for me. an email would also be appreciated. Thank you.

20 to 25% of the parent's income is a common figure.
