You would need to contact a nevada attorney within the county where he is living, and file a complaint. Did he ever bother to get a divorce???


I finally got rid of the never ending money drain. I called the plumber, and got the problem fixed. I wish her the best.

Here in Texas there is a child support hotline that you can call to get help. I know because we have it posted in our work's newsboard. I think if you can google that in your area I think it may be available and would be a good starting point.

Good luck (F)

This needs to be MOVED to "Effects of Major Family Changes on Immigration Benefits" where it will get the attention and experienced answers you need.

Hopefully when Charles or the other mods get over their hangovers....it'll be moved.

To your issue at hand, it sounds like you've got a very good case. The courts don't look very favorably on abandonment.

Find an attorney...don't worry about the cost...if your husband can afford it, he'll be made to pay.

Sorry this had to happen to you. Jerks like him make it hard for the good guys.

Go to a local Child Support Services for your state, they should be able to help you. Are you in California?

I read your timeline. It looks as if you are still in the Phils, and will not be getting the visa because he withdrew the petition after it was approved. If so, I doubt you have a valid claim to file anywhere although perhaps a Phils lawyer could make noises in Nevada to see what happens.

YES, you definetely entitle to child support and alimony. Since you , I suppose, have copied of married certificates, his information...etc.. they will be able to track him down. Getting an attorney may be the best way since you there in the Philippines and he is Nevada. Not is not fair for you, don't let run away from his responsibility. GO GET HIM, it's the law to pay child support and now alimony.

OLD Dominion, she is entitled for support for her child eventhough she lives in other country. If they have these child together, yes indeed she can get her husband or even ex to support her child.

I expect that only a lawyer would know. She has no standing, so far as I am aware, to file anything in an American court. Yes, ethically she should be entitled to child support but suing for it is another thing. How can she appear in court on her behalf?

You're right. She cant file in Nevada without being a resident. She would have to use some court in the P.I.'s

Even using a court in the Philippines she is still screwed. No court order in the phils is valid in the US. Being she is neither a USC or a PR she has no rights in this regards. I am very sorry to say that out of country child support is not enforcable. Proving that her child is that of a USC will be quit hard also. I am very sorry to say but your situation is not looking good.
