Ok, my friend who has allowed me to speak on her behalf…is 5 weeks pregnant. She is currently in Toronto and is moving to Taiwan to have her child and take up residency there. Her mother and her extended family reside in Taipei. The father of the child has chosen not to take responsability. She wants to make sure that once she has the child that she will have sole custody and that he will not come and use legal action to try and take the child away. As welll, she wants to enforce child support payments on him. What does she need to do in this situation? Does she need him to sign any sort of legal documents ? Would this be under taiwanese law or canadian law? How would the child support work out?
Her mother is currently in talks with a lawyer in taiwan…but I just wanted to get your legal advice regarding this matter as well. Thank you.
