Default Seeking advice

Hi everyone

I just wanted to ask if anyone can give me an advice about seeking for financial support.

I have 13years old daughter with my ex boyfriend. We are not married but my daughter is using his surname. She was born when he is still PH citizen.

He never support my daughter financialy even if I keep on demanding for monthly support. Only give once a year or never with small amount.

He now lives in UK and holding british citizenship.

My daughter is in highschool now and not long and will be in college. I want to seek a legal advice on how can we get him support my daughter monthly unil she finish school.

If anyone can give an advice, will appreciate a lot.

Thanks

Unless you are both in the UK I don't rate your chances.

It appears Lizzy you are in the UK and so maybe you should contact your government there at the nearest Philippine Consulate or Embassy for advice here's a link.
The Official Website of the Philippine Embassy in London, United Kingdom

I think your main problems are you never married your daughters father, and your daughter was born in the Philippines ? Is this correct ? Is the ex boyfriend the registered father ? And your daughters surname is the same as his and registered as so ? If yes you could could possibly get help if he is a British Citizen and working and has a National insurance number. But its only a chance

Looks like the father is Pinoy and daughter is using his last name so contact these agencies
PAO (Public Attorney's Office), the DOJ (Department of Justice) as well as from DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development)
It's a violation of the Violence Against Women and Children Act to not support children.
If he stays in the UK might be hard to make him pay. But maybe the DSWD can tell immigration to grab him at the airport If he ever comes back from the UK.

It has a little chance for you to have financial support for your daughter since as you have stated you are not Married. Even though she used his father surname you don't have papers to show and it just your boyfriend. I don't want you to have false hope. But still, try to seek help in the government agencies and there are a lot of scholarships where you can enroll your daughter for educational assistance.

Let's hope that it was stated on her daughter's certificate.

You can file a case for violation of Republic Act. No. 9262 or Violence Against Women and Children. This is notwithstanding the fact that you and the father were never married. You can invoke economic abuse as a ground for non-support as he is under obligation to support his child whether legitimate or illegitimate under the Family Code.
