Under Taiwanese law, if a foreigner (Male) and local citizen (Female) are unmarried, the local becomes pregnant and decides to have the child (against the male’s wishes, or maybe because she wants to claim child support), can the local force the foreigner to pay child support after giving birth? How much would she be able to claim from child support?
Example: Bob meets Mira on Tinder and have a one night hookup and wears condoms. The condom isn’t 100% effective and Mira becomes pregnant. Mira tells Bob, who says he’s not ready for kids. Mira knows Bob is rich so goes through with childbirth and now wants 50% of Bob’s income per month for child support. Bob has significant assets in Taiwan (house, business) and can’t run away. How will the courts treat Bob in this case?
Also, no I didn’t get a girl pregnant. I’d like to know how safe it is to date locals.
You can find gold-diggers everywhere, even foreigners in Taiwan might not be safe to date. The risk is of course lower with guys and/or anal. But the only real defense against gold-diggers is to put all your assets into a charitable trust. @Marco has a good CPA/lawyer team who could advise you.
Just then date women richer than you, then they do not need money from you? A lot more high income and better educated women nowdays for you too choose from, infact I think women now have higher education for the most part
If you take all your dates to IKEA, they’ll probably just assume you don’t have any assets to pillage in the first place. This way, you can also be sure they like you for your charming personality and impeccable etiquette.
I think this might be the only way. But I’m worried the doctors here don’t have enough experience.
Also is it innocent until proven guilty (with a DNA test) here, or guilty until proven innocent in the case of a local suing a foreigner for child support? Any foreigners have first hand experience with this? I’d imaging connections with the local judge plays a role too?
If the other party really went through with the childbirth against the guy’s wishes and they used protection, I’d pay something reasonable by local standards, but not half my salary if it’s just a casual relationship that hasn’t progressed onto something serious. I’m wondering whether there’s some case law I can read through about past settlements.
Also some might be vindictive and request half your income without allowing you to visit the kid, since there’s no marriage, and a judge may side with the local
