Seeking for your assistance on what is best to do. I have two daughters, both conceived out of wedlock.Hopeful sa forever
It was only today, January 10, 2017 when I found out that my eldest daughter isn’t registered at NSO. The father of my eldest child lives far from us and has no contact with us ever since. I do not intend to file for child support as I fear that this may affect our child in the future (hearings etc..) lalo she was diagnosed of having ADHD. The fear of her being depressed on her later years scares me.
As requested by the Local Civil Registry, I need to file an affidavit as to why my eldest was registered late along with my previous partner(magkikita kami!). As much as possible I do not want to see the father of my child for he is already happily married and I do not want them to think that I am trying to ruin what they have now.
Currently I am living with the father of my second daughter with plans of getting married this year. The question that I have are;
1. Do I fix her NSO late registration prior to the adoption? I do not want to meet the father of my eldest in several occasion as I respect his new family.
2. Can I adopt my eldest to avoid seeing the father of my first born? Having said that I adopt her will it remove the paternal acknowledgment of my first born's dad?
3. In the event that I marry my current parter, and my first born is already adopted by ME, do my partner adopt her again? (gulo, di ko din gets)
Your thoughts on this will be highly appreciated.
