Comedian Cem Yilmazex-wife actress Ahu YagtuHe brought the decision of the Court of Appeal, which canceled the reduction of the 10 thousand dollars alimony paid for his son to 70 thousand liras, to the Court of Cassation. Yılmaz’s lawyer said, “The mother should equally ensure the maintenance of the child’s life. Then the mother should give 10 thousand dollars to her child,” he said.
Signed by Özge Eğrikar from Hürriyet newsAccording to the Court of Appeals, Cem Yılmaz objected to the decision of the Court of Appeal through his lawyer, Renkin Gönenç, and took the case to the Court of Cassation. Gönenç stated in his appeal petition that the Court of Appeal reversed the decision without taking into account the economic conditions in Turkey:
“As per the law, since 2018, all of the client’s income, including rental income, is in Turkish lira, not exchange rate. The unforeseen increase of the dollar in Turkey constitutes a violation of equity. Ahu Yağtu, the mother as well as the client, should equally ensure the maintenance of the child’s life. Then the mother has to give her child 10 thousand dollars. After the child’s education, health and general expenses are covered, is it fair for the mother to receive a total of 20 thousand dollars per month in alimony? What kid spends $20,000 a month on food and drink? For this reason, we appealed the decision of the Court of Appeal and brought the file to the Court of Cassation.”
