KUWAIT CITY, Jan 16:The Court of Appeals has issued a sentence to order the ex-husband of a Kuwaiti woman to pay her KD 8,000 to buy a vehicle for their first daughter in order for her to commute to her university, a monthly sum of KD 120 to pay the salary of the driver, and a sum of KD 5,000 for the care of their second daughter.
This sentence was issued after it was proven that the father of the two girls has varied sources of income, as well as a number of luxury vehicles. Lawyer Fatima Al-Shatti, who represented the Kuwaiti woman, explained in the case that her client was given custody of her two daughters after the divorce with her ex-husband was finalized.
However, the girls’ father refused to pay for the expenses of his daughters, despite several pleas by their mother, forcing her to resort to the court. The court ordered the defendant to pay for the expenses of his daughters, especially since they are university students, and are in need of proper transportation and other items to facilitate their education and well-being.
