I tried to patch up our problem but it turned out to be futile. I was not allowed to stay with them (my wife and my 6 months daughter) in one house. However, I was so insistent to visit my daughter. Initially, i was allowed. I always bring milk, water, clothes,and other needs of my daughter every time i visited her. I never missed a week to see my daughter. Every time i visited my daughter, my wife was not in their house. If I asked her parents about my wife, they would just simply answer that they do not her whereabouts.
There were days that i was deprived to see my daughter. I refused to open doors but i was assertive and sometimes I needed to volume my voice so they would the gate.
There were days that my daughter suffered cough but my mother-in-law refused to allow me to bring my daughter to the doctor.
Until it reached the day that they deprived me to see my daughter. I was surprised on the day that i visited my daughter, my wife's mother told me that they (my wife and my daughter,she was already 1 year old and 4 months) left with out their (My wife's parents, sister and aunt and uncle)knowledge. They left their house a day before i visited my daughter. And they have not informed me about it. On their facial expression, they do not look that they are worried.
Because I was so worried about my daughter, so I raised voice and asked them what did they do when they knew that my wife and my daughter were not already in their house.
I had a hot conversation with them and their reasons were all illogical. her mother even brought out the issue on Official Transcript of Record of my wife. They were so insisting that i should pay it. The truth was, My wife was already a graduate and even took her board exam before we got married, hence, it should be her parents has the responsibility to pay it and I never knew about it. I came to know, when i asked my wife (we were still living in one house) if she wants to work. my wife finally revealed that her OTR was not yet released because they can not pay their balance of P14,000.
I blotter the incident that my wife and my daughter left their house with out their knowledge to the baraggay and police. Until one day, through our friends, my wife's parents through her mouth, that my wife asked permission from her parents which was in contrary to the conversation of her mother to me, when i visited my daughter.
I decided to go to PAO and we met. I asserted my visitorial rights to my daughter, but they are reluctant.
What legal action shall I do?
Supposed, that they will not admit all the facts i'll be including to my petition:
a. her father brought back all my things to my parents' house
b. they will deny that i visited my daughter and support her need like milk, water, clothes. solid foods and the like
c. they deny that i set for mediation in PAO
d. they will insist that it was her parents who provided everything, the needs of my wife and my daughter and including me. The truth is I have work. My income can sustain our needs.
I just simply anticipating things, attorney.
If my petition is already in court and my wife refuse to appear in court, how could the judge be convinced to compel the presence of wife, because, i have this fear that she is not already in the Philippines?
If I will file for annulment, what is the possible ground?
Thank you attorney.
