i have a child with an american citizen..we were not married but he signed an acknowledgement of paternity thats why the child bears his family name..the child is 5 years old now..
i have lost communication with the father 5 years ago and do not know even where he is right now..
i am working overseas and got married already...my child is left in the Philippines under the care of my parents but i do go home twice a year..
now, that i want to bring the child for a vacation to the UK, they asked me to produce a court order for sole custody of the child..
Is that necessary? I am the biological mother of the child and is not married to the father? and the child is under 7 years old?
how do i apply for that court order? and what are the requirements? is there no other remedy to this?
can somebody enlighten me about this please...
