Arresto Menor
Good evening Atty,
I have a question about the legality of the Affidavit of Custody that I have together with a Joint-affidavit of two disinterested person backing up my first document and telling and sworn all true. My situation is I am never married until now, my daughter is 10 years old and we are planning to apply to migration abroad. The DFA didn't said anything wrong with my affidavits but when I came to the embassy for their authentication they told me that this isn't 100% useful if we want to migrate abroad. They told me to get a court order. I am a member of Solo Parent from DSWD. I have never seen the father since 2007 when we finally broke up. basically we didn't live together since I was still studying that time and he is unemployed. I provide for my child at the moment, I have small business running. She is with me since I gave birth. They told me I have the sole custody and I can prove it,she is even using my surname without middle name but in her birth certificate, the father acknowledged her. Then as what I have hear he is accused of murder last year, even if I ask his permission we can't find him and I don't think he will give me the permission. this is making our progress difficult. What do you think should I do? is that documents enough to prove my custodial status and what is better suggestions with this matter? Thank you very much hope to get your answer ASAP. pls reply, I need your help badly..

if this were for ph govt requirements, you would have no problem. but the one requiring it is a foreign government.

in past posts re the aus embassy, some actually filed a petition for custody just to get a doc to show. others dinaan sa kulitan and were eventually allowed.
