My Pinoy girlfriend Married into a Civil marriage very young (10 years ago, she was 19). The marriage produced a single child almost right away. The birth certificate indicates Marriage and the childs surname is that of the father. The father split soon after.
Fastforward to today, and she is beginning the annulment process. As I understand the typical "psychological
incapacity" will be presented to the court. If I am correct, this will result in the child being of LEGITIMATE (although please correct me if I am wrong).
So given the above..
A) What role does this play in her subsequent remarriage to me (A Canadian).
B) What additional steps we will need to take with regards to Filipeano law that will allow her child to be sponsored (come to Canada) with her.
If the Child is indeed illegitimate, how do the answers to the above change. Once a Marriage is annuled, what is the typical time line for for the Mother to adopted this Child?
