1 Child Custody! PLEASE HELP on Wed Feb 14, 2018 5:21 am

Dear Atty,
I am a filipino citizen and have a child born out of wedlock with a US Citizen. We are in good terms and plans to get married in the US, once I get my fiance visa.
Our 3 year old daughter is in the custody of her US citizen mother. Both of them resides with her mom's parents in the province. I, rent my own place in the city. The 3 of us stay together for 2-3 weeks in a month either in the city or in the province.

Her U.S. citizen mother is planning to go to the US soon. Our daughter is a filipino citizen, and the mother still needs to finish processing our daughter's citizenship in the Us and could take more than 6 months.

Questions for our family.
1. Who gets custody of our daughter while her mother is abroad? Grandparents (mother's parents) are claiming.
2. Just in case something unforeseen happens in the future, what steps can i do right now that would help me keep custody? (Docs, papers, evidence)
3. In case the mother dies abroad, who gets custody of my child?
4. Who are the people that can give me legal advice in this matter and how much usually is their professional fee?

I apologize for having such a long post. I may not be able to pay you money right now, but i will surely pay you with enormous gratitude. I love my family. i hope someone can help.

I'm assuming this is in the PH and you signed the birth certificate of the child.

The mother gets to decide. She has sole parental authority and right to custody. Try to convince her to give custody to you.
