same problem with australia. the problem here is that our law makes custody and parental authority automatically vested with the mother of illegit children. there are no 'custody papers' necessary.

try to begin with telling them that ph law is like that. others made it through kulitan with immig officers. others actually had to file a case here to be declared as the obvious custodians.
