Dans ma famille j'ai un problème, mon père s'est marier a ma mère officiellement en 1980,ils nous ont mis au monde au nombre de 9 enfants dont 7 filles et 2 garçons, dans la famille il y avait 3 filles enfanter dans sa jeunesse avant de prendre la maman en mariage, 2 autres après mariage en dehors du toit conjugale dont 1garcon et une fille.Nous étions tous élevées par la même mère a l'amiable, après 30 ans de mariage le père déclare le divorce soit disant il ne veut plus rester avec une telle femme, comme motif néant, le père dit qu'il va diviser la parcelle en deux partie pour que la maman ait sa part mais aussi partager les enfants, la mère refuse de divorcer, les enfants aussi a leur tours refusent d’être partager, chaque jour dans le foyer ils se disputent pour rien, souvent nous passons la nuit avec la maman chassée de sa chambre, le père passe la nuit plusieurs fois en dehors du toit conjugale, il y a trois ans qu'il ne paie plus le frais scolaire pour les enfants, ne donne plus a manger pourtant il a un salaire de 500$ le mois, il n'accepte pas de construire, on se demande ou va l'argent perçu? vraiment les droits de la maman sont violes a 100% pouvez vous la conseiller d'accorder le divorce malgré son age de 53 ans?

Information

In my family I have a problem, my father was married to my mother officially in 1980. They have brought into the world nine children, seven daughters and two boys. In the family they had the first three girls before my mother was married. Two other children were born after the marriage outside of the family household, one boy and one girl. The same kind mother raised us all, after 30 years of marriage my father decided to divorce her supposedly because he no longer wanted to stay with such a woman. As a result my father said that he would divide the land in two parts so that my mother could have her part but also share with the children, my mother refused the divorce, the children also refused to be shared. Every day at home they would argue for nothing, often we passed the night with mom who had been chased out of her room, and a few times my father spent the night outside of the home. It has been three years since he has paid for the school fees for the children, and he has not given more money for eating even though he has a salary of $500 per month. He does not accept to help, one wonders, will the money ever appear? Really the rights of the mother were violated at 100% can you advise on whether to grant the divorce despite her age of 53.

Est-ce que vous pouvez

Est-ce que vous pouvez expliquer comment les lois travaillent sur les couples qui sont séparés ou divorcé ? Est-ce qu’il y a une loi qui dit que le père doit payer les frais scolaires et la moitie des coute de vie pour les enfants ? Est-ce que votre maman veut rester avec ton père, ou est-ce qu’elle de vivre seule si elle a le soutien de son ex-mari ?
