Customer Question

My husband and I were divorced this January, following several years of separation. We moved to Malawi 8 years ago with our (then) 2 year old daughter. My husband left Malawi in 2014 and our daughter remained with me. I have recently asked for financial assistance and received a flat 'no'. I have not blocked access since he left and on the times we have returned to the UK, she has stayed with him and he has also taken her twice on his own during school holidays from Malawi to the UK (and holiday to Europe). I feel that now he is becoming problematic (upon receiving a very angry email) and would like to know where I stand or what I do next to 1) apply for legal custody and 2) request financial support from him being that I am residing in Malawi. Thanks.

What capital assets are there and what income does your ex have?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no assets. I don't know what income he has. He is an engineer and since leaving Malawi has been travelling all over the world as a self-employed contractor, I understand.
