(i posted this earlier pero sa maling board, kya repost ko dito.)

good morning po sa inyo. eto po ang kwento ko. May anak po ako sa ex-girlfriend ko na ngayon ay nsa Virginia USA na. Hindi po kami kasal. Dito po sa pilipinas ipinanganak yung bata. 3 years old na po ngayon un bata. Nung umalis po sila dito ay OK pa ang relasyon namin ng ina. Permanent resident po na Green card holder ang status nila don. ang original na plano po ay susunod ako sa kanila, pero after almost a year doon, ay nagkaron ng lalaki yung mother. Pinsan po ng mother ng anak ko ang kanyang kalaguyo, anak po ng pinsan ng tatay nia. Legally, d ko po alam kung pwede yung relasyon nila, pero syempre magiging iba ang tingin ng tao sa kanila. Gusto ko po sana na mapasa akin ang custody ng anak ko since di maganda ang magiging environment nya doon. Ma eexpose po yung anak ko sa discrimination. Ano po ang laban ko sir/ma'am? mag 1yr na po sila sa USA sa march.

Last name ko po ang dinadala nung bata.
salamat.

You were never married; Sad to say but, they are Green Card Holders and bound by the Laws of USA; some states presume that in the case of unmarried parents, the mother automatically has custody, while others expect single mothers to file for custody, even if the father is not involved. Each state has different child custody laws. Some states presume that parents have joint custody, while other states do not. What is the Family name used by the Child? Did you acknowledge the Child on the Birth Certificate?

thanks for replying,

yes the child is carrying my name. I am listed as the father in her birth certificate. Is there a way to file a case that could force her to come back here? Do we have any social welfare laws that could help? what about immigration laws, maybe there's a way that i can have them deported. I don't think their current environment is fit for a child. Should i consult a lawyer based in virginia?

Is the mother's relationship with her cousin considered as incest?

thank you

if you have the financial resources to pursue this, your best move will be to file a case in VA. but this is a very steep uphill battle for you.
