What you need to know:

  • My babies' father is married. He works as an auditor and his net salary is over Sh100,000 per month. He however doesn't provide anything for our children


My name is Lisa. I am a 40-year-old mother of three boys, all of whom I had with my estranged lover. One of the boys, the second-born, is mentally challenged and needs special care. The firstborn is in Form One while the lastborn is in class five. My babies' father is married. He works as an auditor and his net salary is over Sh100,000 per month. He however doesn't provide anything for our children. I am currently broke and unable to sustain my children after my salon business collapsed. When I reached out to him, he said I tricked him into having children and he can never pay child support for kids he never wanted. What legal options do I have to get him to pay child support? What amount should I ask for in court? What are the chances that the court can refuse to attach his salary for child support, given that he is in the private sector and not a civil servant?
