'I need help to deal with demands of my ex wife'
I am an expat and I got divorced from my wife, also an expat, on her request five years ago.
The honourable family court decided that I should pay Dhs2,500 for the children’s expenses. At that time, I told the court that children need their mother’s guidance and said they should stay with their mother. Up until last month I was paying all expenses of running the house and paying rent. My ex wife stayed in the same house and in another room. Now the children are grown up and earning and never give a me a dirham towards the rent.
Last Thursday there was an argument and they beat me. I left the house with my belongings and now she is threatening me to continue paying everything otherwise she will inform the police. My wife also sent an sms saying if I don’t pay the amount then she will go to police.
She told me if I didn’t want this to happen all I had to do was transfer money to my son’s bank account. I have saved this message.
What can I do in this situation?
