1 Unmarried And Child Custody on Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:19 pm


Arresto Menor
As you all know (based on my few posts), I am not from Philippines. To Philippines I am a foreigner. I have a child who is Filipina and our child was born there .. under my last name..

If I were to think on the path of child custody.... what are my chances? I know this is vague as question but I'm starting from here anyway...

I am the father and normally, custody is given to the mother..

ed, who has the child? if you signed the birth certificate or can prove that you are the father with dna testing, then i would argue you have better right to custody than anyone else who isn't the mother.

jmcpro, unmarried father vs mother of illegitimate child, unless you can prove the mother puts her child in danger by being a drug addict or exposes him to immoral acts, very unlikely that you will win. you'd have a better chance of being in you child's life by having visitation rights.
