1 Domestic Adoption - Crystal Clear? on Thu Nov 16, 2017 3:07 pm


Arresto Menor
Dear Atty/Sir/Madam,

Crystal Clear?


Are the Domestic Adoption Act RA8852 (1998)(S13,16-18) and New Rule on Adoption A.M.02-6-02-SC (2002)(S16,17,19) clear, for a lawyer or a lay-person to understand, that an adopted child's successional (inheritance) rights are de facto retroactive to the date of petition once the adoption decree is final and executory and after the mandatory reglementary period has expired? If not clear, how can it be shown to be clear?

During the reglementary period, to what court and on what grounds can a domestic adoption can be contested? Can the birth parents contest it with a view to it being revoked?

Further background details posted on requested.

Best regards and thank you,
