His father was ok with most things as long as there was a flow of money for him out of it, but the son must be overloaded with family dosh so no need to replicate that thinking.

Re: Petition to UK govt to increase state pension

In the UK the state pension is okay, if eaten away by the thieving scum at the council (council taz), if you own your own house and don't mind cold showers and minimal heating... paying rent out of...

Re: 25% pension tax free and house sale CGT

No split tax years in Spain so it has to be done before end of year and then move in the next year (even coming for a holiday in the tax year when sold may be taken as being a resident for tax...

Re: Siquijor vs Siargao better to live?

As well as typhoons there is also rising sea levels, if one does not get you the other may. Had a sudden vision of building a house on hydraulic stilts so you can burrow downwards into the ground for...

Re: CHILD SUPPORT

British law will apply to the husband if he is living in the UK, if he is on benefits some of that money will be taken off the benefits - it is not a huge amount but it would go quite far in the PI....

Re: Barclays Account Frozen

There is hopefully a difference in treatment of British passport holders and others, which would explain the post Brexit changes as EU nationals had to be treated the same as Brits when we were in...

Re: Me and My Family

Re: Me and My Family

It is an interesting separation, a grey area where the "marriage" is concerned. As I understand it, in the PI the husband is liable for all the wife's debts, so he may be able to pay her off but will...

Re: Me and My Family

Potentially a very good ending, though still the marriage status to resolve - presumably in a way that does not put the "wife" in jail - though I would guess she is keen to get another foreigner to...

Re: Peninsular MM2H reactivated from October, new conditions

I almost did this but it would have been ruined by Covid, being either locked in or locked out of countries and possibly being hammered by tax if you stay more than 180 days in a tax year because you...

Re: Easiest (cheap/fastest) way to get an EU passport

Compared to what we had pre-Breixt it is all a dismal mess. On Ireland, any thoughts what would happen if NI decided to join Ireland and hence EU, would free movement between the new Ireland and UK...

Re: Me and My Family

I get the impression that there is a lot of "leveling down" going on in the PI, one person in an extended family gets ahead and the whole lot of them are kind of desperate to bring her down to the...

Re: Me and My Family

Nice to hear a positive story but older guys are most likely going to get loads of hassle from their Filipina so they may as well go as young as they can legally get away with... though the more you...

Re: Me and My Family

That 38k a month was given under false pretenses, she was not his wife, had a Filipino boyfriend and four kids hidden away, so the total should be deducted from any settlement rather than added to it...

Re: Me and My Family

The way it works is that youngish gals have a older foreign husband but also have to make face for Filipino men, either with money or sex - usually both. Filipinas tend towards being great actresses...
