Your suggestion seems to be based upon the belief Cambodians will do anything for money.

What if she has already found a man who is supporting her and the child? Does she have any grounds for not allowing visitation? Doesn t a father have an obligation to feed and clothe his child regardless if he sees the child or not?
Before you derail this sensitive thread with the typical endless semantic back and forth betwixt you and explorer....

Yeah... beware of taking advice from those who don't even practice that advice.

ya, I would see a lawyer for legal advice, a doctor if I needed medical advice and a dentist if I have a sore tooth. I think that using money as a threat or intimidation to have access to a child is as offensive as withholding access to a child for no reason. Personally I think posting this seeking advice on a fourm will not make a bit of difference in the outcome but makes to poster feel better by getting it off his chest.

@engexpat

You have rights bro.

You must go and see the Commune Chief at the village where your child is registered first and she will be summoned to sign an agreement along with you regarding custody, access and monies.

This is the first step and then it's not just your word against hers of who said what where and when. It is formally documented.

I will not lead you astray with false shit.

After that - if it doesn't work out the Chief will tell you what to do and where to go next.

Generally it is 2 strikes of either party breaking the agreement before the Chief will report to a higher authority.

Article 74:
The divorcing father or mother must support, take care of, bring up and provide their children money for the
children's education and schooling as much as they can.

Article 75:
A party who does not receive custody of the children has the right to visit his or her children.
The party who is entitled to receive custody of the children must make it easy for the other party to come to visit
the children.
The party who does not receive custody of the children has the right to file a complaint at any
time with the People's Court to revoke the other party's right to custody of the children if the children's interests
is violated.

I recommend: Try to work it out on a friendly basis between you and her before you resort to legal avenues. If you can come to a happy arrangement between yourselves, it will be much better.

engexpat - As the natural father of a child born of a Cambodian mother and and in Cambodia and so recorded on the child's Cambodian birth certificate, you have full access to the Cambodian court system, should it become necessary, seeking access to and, indeed, shared custody of your child.

I trust that you also registered the birth of your child at the embassy of your own nationality, which not stated, so as to give this child other options later is life such as residence, study or working rights or travel to your country of nationality? If not do so without further delay.

There is little point is seeking legal information on a forum such as this. You need good practical legal advice based four square on the facts of your own situation. Go and get sound legal advice and keep all of your options open.

As has been said many times and to mix metaphors, speak softly but keep your legal options fully available, But first, you need to know exactly within Cambodian law just what those options are. As well as your legal obligations to support the child until 18 years of age.

Good luck.

Yea , mine little guy is not registered. Mother is illiterate and other deficiencies , but could shirley negotiate a deal with a fixer , is why i wanted my 2¢ in case anybody knows a fixer , I just checked into a spell caster but didn’t want to part with $450 for the initial “ seed “ witch shirley woulda snowballed from there . A hitman would probly end up cheaper , but that’s illegal , or unlawful . A positive win win is best for all . And be fair . Easier said than done .
