1 Adultery and concubinage on Tue Nov 25, 2014 3:52 pm

Hello all.

I am from Australia and married to a lovely Filipino woman who has a beautiful 7 year old child. We have been married a couple of years now and are about to lodge for visa, however we may have a problem with the child. My wife met a guy 8 years earlier and they had a relationship but he then went to America to work, he did return and they continued their relationship and a few months later he was told a baby was due. This is when he admitted to having his wife in America and they also have children. They are a married Filipino couple and been working in America for some time. It has now been over 5 years and no contact or any support for his child although the 4 years we have known each other I have supported them and their family. My wife tried to call the father of her child for his permission to bring the child to Australia but his wife answered and threatened to file charges of adultery against my wife. I realise adultery relates to the wife and concubinage the husband. I am also lead to believe that this woman will have to file charges against her husband for any charge to be laid against my wife. My wife and her family never knew this guy was married and only confessed when told about the pregnancy. His name is also on the birth certificate and all we want is for him to sign full custody to the mother so we can all share a happy and healthy lifestyle here in Australia. Any legal advice would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Days.........Bundy

Hi Bundy,

According to what you have mentioned, adultery case against your wife is not possible. 'coz as you have said, they had their relationship before your got married. Adultery is a crime committed by a married woman and cannot be filed against a single/unmarried woman. And you are correct when you say that she have to file a concubinage case against her husband and your wife will be included in the case.

As per Philippine law, the full custody over an illegitimate child is on the mother, what i suggest and I'm sure that some will agree, you need to adopt your wife's child. by that, your case will be resolve.

Hi Con, thank you for your reply. The married couple are still living together as husband and wife, would this constitute an Implied Pardon.

Thanks again

Hi Con, I think if the woman who's husband has committed concubinage, she can pardon him and his mistress by a signed affidavit or implied by continuing to live with her husband as a married couple, in other words she has forgiven him and stays with him.

that is correct. we can see that as one of the reasons also why filing a case is no longer possible. And your wife initiated to contact the father not because of they are having an affair but because of the child. Any ways, IMO the child is illegitimate, therefore the mother can decide for the child even without the consent of the father.

That depends on the evidence he have. since you are married, adultery is possible if he can provide strong evidence. kailangan din i-consider and place kung saan nangyari ang adulterous act. kung sa ibang bansa ito nangyari, i doubt na uusad ang kaso.

Reminder: this is just my personal opinion. i hope our lawyers here can enlighten you more.
