How to File for Child Support: Claims against OFW with POEA and OWWA

This is a follow-up to the earlier successful annulment case of someone I know who's granted an annulment in a short span of time

after the annulment case, the father of her son went away jobless and like a boy hanging onto the skirt of his mother but lately we've found out now has a job at a luxury cruise abroad.

now comes step two: filing child support case or child abandonment

I've love to see other boys (not men) behind bars if they still continue to ignore their children alone with their mother without child support.

I asked a lawyer friend how to file child support from OFWs hiding abroad and now that we know the father's company/agency and the cruise ship's name, i instructed my friend to inquire at the POEA for the gaency's contact number and later the OWWA for assistance.

This post will be updated once there are bloggable stuff for people also looking for process and procedures on going after the runaway father (and mothers too who abandoned their child/ren without financial support)

  8. hi if my father abroad has not been sending money for my two brothers one is 11 years old and another is a 21 year old suffering autism can we ask our father to provide support? Another point of the story is that i caught my father having affairs with different women (thru his facebook account) and giving them money/gadgets instead of sending support for my brothers. I have printed proof of their conversations. what legal actions can we take? if he refuses to support them, can my mother and i request for his deportation? and if yes what particular government agency can we ask for assistance?
    THANK YOU
