I have a child who is 4 years old now. His father is a Malaysian. Actually I want to file a child support because his father never give support for his schooling, clothing etc. Actually, he is not giving enough financial support, only RM800 per month.

I gave birth to my son in Philippines, but in my son's birth certificate, his Malaysian father signed the birth certificate to acknowledge that my son is his son. So what can I do about the support? What is the law in Malaysia for child support? We are not married. Can you please advise me. Thank you

Where are you and your son now?
Why didn't you two get married in the Philippines or Malaysia?

This is already child support given.
File for child support where? your country or in Malaysian Courts?

I gave birth to my son in Philippines, but in my son's birth certificate, his Malaysian father signed the birth certificate to acknowledge that my son is his son.
Is the name of the father registered inside the birth certificate?
By signing on a child birth certificate has no material advantage. A Paternity Lawsuit has to be established first.

What is the law in Malaysia for child support?
Depending on the disposable income of the Father, child support can be just RM500 for those legitimate children of legally married just divorced couple. If the father is unemployed and the mother is employed, the mother bears the child support.

Can you please advise me.

So even after I have registered my son at the Philippine Embassy in Malaysia, I still need to go to Malaysia Embassy to register?

Do you mean that if the father still married to the first wife he is not allowed to give financial support for the child?
