1 Legitimation of my brother on Sun Jan 27, 2013 8:38 pm

My mother didnt write my father's name in my brother's birth certificate. Now we are having a dilemma since my dad is already an american citizen and he wants to petition my brother since he is still a minor. What should we do to prove that he is my father's son? Is legitimation an option? Our parents are never married since my dad is already married to another woman before us

Please advice. Thank you

You may do either:

1. File for late registration, include in the new registration the name of the father.

2. File a petition for filiation.

Legitimation is not an option because of prior marriage of your father.

Thank you!

Is it possible to register again? My brother has his birth cert already indicating that the father is "unknown".

What is filiation?

Thank you again! More power!

imo, the father should execute an affidavit of acknowledgment and authority to use surname of the father (if desired) to be filed at the local civil registry. it can be notarized at the ph consulate

Yes it is possible, though it seems to be illegal but it works. Just indicate in the 2nd Birth certificate the full name of the father and used it as the childs official record. (This is the practical and out of the book, way of doing it.)

Process of establishing the relationship of the child towards his/her father.

**In both querries, i subscribe to AttyLLL's opinion as posted above.(The safe and secure way)

even with late registration, you will need an acknowledgment from the father. at the same time, if nso finds out there was a previous birth cert, they will cancel the second one. consequence of shortcuts.
