I know that there are instances when a lawyer can refuse not to notarize a document under the Implementing Rules on Notarial Practice. In the above situation po, basta na lang ba magrerefuse ang lawyer na hindi nya notaryohan ang document kasi sa pagkakaalam nya insane "daw" yung tao. How can he be sure diba? I think, it's not fair. Pwede bang mag establish muna ng proof na insane nga yung father, like consulting a physician to prove the lawyer's allegation at wag magrely lang sa akala nya ay tama --na insane nga yung tao.
According to that lawyer, he will not notarize the document.. inonotaryo na lang daw nya yung sa mother at sa mother na lang daw ang gamiting apelyedo. It was too painful for the father when he heard that because he wants to give his surname to his baby kasi sya nga naman talaga ang tatay. Kawawa naman sya kasi he felt so deprived of this right to be a father to his baby. Please advice me how can my family help our house garderner.
Thank you so much.
