Would this violation (of Philippines law) be enforceable in the UK? It would be 1 thing to have the court to rule in your favor as the plaintiff and another for this to be enforced in a different sovereign nation.

He still owes child support. I have no respect for men that don't support their children. File a case in the UK.

Most countries have laws about enforcing foreign child care obligations. Not sure of the procedure for the UK but I did read about it being in effect in Canada a few years ago. As I recall the custodial parent had the option of having the foreign ruling enforced or a new amount calculated under Canadian rules. The Canadian courts would not even look at overturning a custodial order of a foreign court.

The OP should get good legal advice and not take the word of random internet strangers.

The problem is "service of notice."

In the Philippines, we have a mechanism for the enforcement of foreign judgment. I am not familiar with UK laws but I'm sure there is.

The best that you can do, however, after you filed a case and secure a warrant for his arrest is to submit a petition for before the Department of Justice that he may be out on Watchlist so that he may be made aware of the pendency of criminal case against him once he enters Philippine jurisdiction and pass thru the Immigration. Hope this would help.

For personal actions, like a civil suit case for support (if she opts to file a civil case not a criminal case), service of summons could be made thru publication and once the process is completed in accordance with the Rules, the defendant is deemed by the court to have been served. There is no need to personally locate the father and serve him the notice.
