I'm married but my youngest son, (turning 4) is a product of a deceitful affair that causes the separation from my legal family. When i gave birth to him, i have decided to have my brother adopt him since i was mentally, emotionally and financially shattered that time. Also, his biological father (which i decided to not continue with the illicit affair), threatened me that he will be going to take away my son. So, having my son uses my brother's name, would be a better way to hide him from his biological father. Verbal agreement was i can have him anytime i wanted to and that he will know i am his mother. There's no legal process went through but just spoke with the doctor who assisted me giving birth and have my brother and his wife to register my son after two weeks of delivery.
Since the verbal agreement is not happening and i was not happy how they raised my son, and i am now ready to take care and reinvent myself as a mother to him; i want to know my chance of bringing it in a court proceedings. Since i was also threatened by my sister-in-law (adoptive mother) that i will no longer see my son...
Is there any possibility i can take him back? What would be the legal responsibility the doctor would be liable for? Do they can use adultery against me? I have never been in a relationship since then. My ex-husband is processing the annulment already and living with someone else.
Your response would be highly appreciated. Thank you and more power.
