gudpm po atty.. hihingi lang po sana ako ng advice.. mayroon po akong anak naun na mag 7 years old.. sa naun po ay nasaken ang anak ko dahil hindi po kami kasal ng tatay nya at naghiwalay na din po kami 4 years na ang nakaraan., sa di sinasadyang pangyayari ay nagkaroon po kami ng relasyon ng dating kasintahan ng hipag ko., nagkataon po na ung dating kasintahan ng hipag ko ay nagkaroon din sila ng anak subalit ung sinasabi po na anak nila ay di nakapangalan sa tatay dahil ang sabi po ay parang pinanagutan nya lang ang bata kahit di sa kanya ngunit kalaunan ay minahal na din nya ang bata at tinuring na anak., kung titignan nyo po, ang anak ko at anak ng kasintahan ko naun ay magpinsang buo., sa naun po ay nagkaroon ng bunga ang relasyon namin at nagkaroon kami ng anak., gusto pong kunin ng tatay ng anak ko ang anak ko na nasa poder ko dahil sa imoral daw po ang ginawa ko na pagpatol sa dating kinakasama ng ate nya., ang ate nya din po ay di kasal sa lalake.,

ang tanung ko lang po, makukuha po ba saken ang unang anak ko at mawawala saken ang custodiya ng bata dahil sa pagpatol ko at pagkakaroon ng anak sa dating kinakasama ng hipag ko? di po kami kasal ng tatay ng anak ko at di din po kasal ang hipag ko at kinakasama ko naun.,

ang isa pa po, kasal po ang kinakasama ko sa iba subalit 8 years na po silang hiwalay ng dati nyang asawa., pagkatapos po ng paghihiwalay nila ay saka naman po nya naanakan daw ang hipag ko..

gusto ko lang po malaman may laban po ba ako sa custody ng anak ko? pasensya na po kau at sana ay maliwanagan nyo po ako., salamat po..

Since your son/daughter is already 7 years old, the "maternal preference rule" does not apply to you since it is only applicable to children below 7 years of age. This time the decision of the court on who to give the custody of your son/daughter depends upon the choice of your son/daughter.

So if your relationship with your 7 year old son/daughter is harmonious or no problem at all, then you have nothing to worry about.

@technified: reagrding po sa case ni welsh.

since ang sinsabi nyang kinakasama or anak ng new baby nya ay may legal na kasal at mukang hndi naman yta ito lingid sa kanyang kaalalam?

liable sya sa concubinage/concubine right?

and since the isue is only for custody?

upon her situation.. is it posible na makuha ng ama ng first baby nya ang custody sa ganung grounds? (imorality) which is imorality din naman ang first afair nya dito?

meaning malaki ba ang chance ng father na mukuha ang bata?

disregard na ang welfare at safety ng bata kasi mukang fit naman si welsh financialy..

pero di po ba for safety purposes if ever babae ang anak nya.. maari itong maging hadlang na manatili sa ina ang custodiya considering na ang baby daughter nya ay hndi maari ipamahay o kasamahin s abahay ng current live in nya dahil hndi sila blood related ng bata. for safety reason i mean.

@raheemerick

on the ground of immorality, in child custody cases, the Highest Court on many of its decisions, favor the mother than the father. Even a prostitute mother or an abortive mother was favored upon. What is important is the mothers tender loving care for her children. The SC once said, "No man can fatum to the sorrow of the mother that have been deprive of her children"

But still, its a case to case basis. Lawyer of the husband should be very good to counter such previous decisions of the SC, to be able to win a custody battle.

very well.. Smile

similar case lng din kasi..

batle sa custody ng mag asawang physical na mag kahiwalay..

since si babae ay proven na may afair at kasulukyang kinakasama.

sa ama naibigay ng court ang custody..

sa iisang dahilan na ipinag laban ng ama:) yung safety ng anak nyang babae.. na comon case na din at nangyayari sa mga posiblilites lalo na at hndi mag ka blood relation ang step father sa anak na babae.

and gya nga ng sabi nyo.. kung sakali?

dpt mahusay ang abugado na tatayo para sa ama na nag hahabol ng custody:)

galing nyo sir:)

tnx.Smile

You're not married with your son's father right? In that case, your son is an illegitimate child. And under the Family Code, the mother has sole parental right over an illegitimate child.

This is explicitly provided Article 176, which states that: "Illegitimate children shall use the surname, and shall be under the parental authority of their mother, and shall be entitled to support in conformity with this code. xxx”

Likewise, parental authority is defined as follows:

“Art. 209. Pursuant to the natural right and duty of parents over the person and property of their unemancipated children, parental authority and responsibility shall include the caring for and rearing them for civic consciousness and efficiency and the development of their moral, mental and physical character and well-being.”

Based on the foregoing, whoever is vested with parental authority over the person of a child shall take his/her custody. Considering that the law specifically designate you as the only parent who is vested with parental authority over your illegitimate child, it is only you who has the right over your child’s custody. This right cannot be taken from you unless there are compelling reasons to deprive you of such right and obligation as may be determined by the court. Thus, even if you are absent and cannot personally exercise such right, the father of your daughter cannot assume this right.

Likewise, only those persons mentioned by law may replace you in the exercise of this parental authority in the event that you cannot perform the same. The Family Code of the Philippines is clear about this:

“Art. 216. In default of parents or a judicially appointed guardian, the following person shall exercise substitute parental authority over the child in the order indicated:
(1) The surviving grandparent, as provided in Art. 214;
(2) The oldest brother or sister, over twenty-one years of age, unless unfit or disqualified; and
(3) The child’s actual custodian, over twenty-one years of age, unless unfit or disqualified.”

thank you po sa sagot.. tanung ko lang din po kasi di naman kami kasal ng tatay ng unang anak ko., kahit po na di kasal, pag 7 years old na ang bata, dadaan pa din sa korte ang custody ng bata? ung tatay po ng anak ko ay di ma nagsusuporta aa anak namin ng mahigit isang taon pero di ko din naman sya hinahabol kaso ay tinatakot nya ako na kukunin sakin ang anak ko at kakasuhan ako sa dswd na di ako fit maging nanay dahil sa naging karelasyon ko., salamat po

since illegitimate ang child mo, you have the sole parental right over the child and considering that the law specifically designate you as the only parent who is vested with parental authority over your illegitimate child, it is only you who has the right over your child’s custody so you're child's age is immaterial. As long as he is minor, he is under your parental authority and custody.

Hindi mo mapipigilan ang husband mo na mag-petition sa court for custody but it will only be dismissed in view of Article 176, 209, and 216.

As mentioned earlier, it is only you who have the right to custody over your child and no one can take this right from you unless there are compelling reasons to deprive you of such right and obligation as may be determined by the court.

Likewise, only those persons mentioned by law may replace you in the exercise of this parental authority in the event that you cannot perform the same (please see earlier post).
