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.

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.

I think you misunderstood. The annual tuition of each child is 60k/yr or 5k/month, while the father earns 90k/mo. Equivalent to 1,080,000/year. Surely, the father is capable to support both child’s tuition fee as well as other expenses
Plus other expenses.

it’s 60k PER ANNUM for the tuition fees, 120k per year for the 2 kids, her husband’s paycheck is 90k PER MONTH, so 90k x 12 = 1,080,000 PER YEAR, so basically he can provide the 120k tuition fee of his 2 kids.

I have 3 kids 14 12 and 6. The father does not have a stable income but works as a tourist van service driver. He does not give any financial support for over a year and only visits once every 3 months, treats them to the movies and give each 100 pesos for snacks. How can i demand for child support since 2 of my kids are already in junior high school. I am a call center employee and the reason given by the father for lack of support is because i earn more than he does.

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

Default 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. danilynbajan0912@gmail.com Thank you.
