1 changing my nephew's surname on Thu Dec 13, 2012 3:17 am

good day!

my sister is living in japan right now and she wanted to take her son with her to migrate there also. She has a japanese husband who wants to adopt her son. My question is, what are the legal process/procedures for adopting a filipino child? and how long does it actually takes for any results?

One of the problems that they have about this adoption is that the biological father doesnt approve of the adoption and doesnt approve of the surname change. Right now my nephew 7 yrs old, and is carrying his biological father's surname instead of my sister's maiden name. His biological father doesnt give any monetary support for the child. My sister never married her son's biological father, they just lived together for about 2-3 years.

what is the best thing to do about this? I am asking you this because my sister is asking me a favor to process the name change, and I dont even know where to start.

I also would like to ask how much does this whole process usually cost?

thanks!

nothing. just pray that the biological father changes his mind for adoption.
