I recently divorced my wife and she has custody of my daughter. I live in the states and she lives with the child in the Dominican Republic(santiago). She was not happy with the child support that the courts of the dominican republic mandated that I send her on a monthly basis. She tried to play the game that if I don't send her more money than that she would not let me see my child. I took a week off from work went down there and went to El tribual de menores and explained my situation and the court mandated that I give at least 2 weeks notice to her when I am down there thru my attorney and that she hand me over my child for the duration of my trip in the dominican republic. The only reason I even got an attorney for this was so that we don't have to talk directly. But there are laws down there you just have to seek them out.
And on another note the court mandated that I give her only $4,000.00 pesos a month and I said that was not enough to bring up my child so I voluntarily give her $400.00 a month.
Well I can put you in contact with her if you want, I send her $400.00 a month plus I pay a mortgage of $600.00 a month for our apartment where she lives at. And she still believes I should pay more than that, when we were together I used to send her $800.00 a month for support but since I don't have to support her I only have to send the $400.00 a month for my child.
