I'm a Filipino Citizen but married to an Australian citizen. I have a 14 year old child which from my previous relationship which is not his child.
My question is, should I sue him for an abandonment or adultery as he has another woman from work place and that he neglect his obligations as a provider. I am unemployed and every time I asked for a financial assistance he refused to get back to me. He is making $10.000 USD on ships as a Chief Financial Acct. yet he never supported me in such amount of time that we're married.
What is the best thing to do?
