my girlfriend just delivered our healthy son a week ago. we are not married so our child is illegitimate. me and my girlfriend are written as parents in our son's birth certificate.
our problem is, my girlfriend's parents doesn't know that she just delivered a baby, and she is scheduled to leave for USA anytime soon. we both decided to let me have a sole custody of the baby. but since Philippine law says that the mother has the sole custody of an illegitimate child, what should we do so that the sole custody will be given to me?
i would really appreciate any help.. thanks!
