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

Hi,

Appreciate if someone can provide me an estimate on how much child support should be given to two kids, ages 10 and 7, if you are earning around PHp90K/month. The yearly tuition fee of the kids is around Php60K per year each.

thanks.

I wish to inform you that child support amount is determined under provisions of Family Code of the Philippines article 201. In this regard generally child support is determined in proportion to the resources or means of the giver and to the necessities of the recipient.

I live in the Philippines, I have a son in 7th Grade who goes to a well known, decent, catholic college and tuition fee is only half of yours, less government subsidies. If you are paying 60k for each of your child's tuition fees and the father only earns 90k/month, your school fees are more than what he earns, rememmber that ther are other expenses besides the school fees. it may be wise and practical to send your children to a more economical but quality school, im sure that you can find some in your area. We have to be reasonable, even if the father gives child support for your children he also has his expenses and has to be able to live to go to work so he can support his children. Child support is going to be based on their reasonable monthly needs and expenses.

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.

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.
