1 Child custody on Tue Apr 26, 2011 6:11 am


Arresto Menor
I have had de facto child custody of my 10-year old daughter who has been living with me in the US since 2002. How do I formalize the custody status of my child? Her mother has been in and out of rehab and am not even sure how to find her in Manila.

What steps do I need to take to make this legal. Is it as simple as filing an affidavit or do I have to go to some kind of trial in the Philippines?

i believe the issue of custody can be decided in the divorce case you will file in the USA
