1 Questions From an Illegitimate Child on Tue Aug 23, 2011 7:14 am


Arresto Menor
Good day!

I would like to ask for an advise. I am the eldest of the 3 illegitimate children. We are using our father's surname although he is already and still married to his legal wife. Our father is an ex PNP official. He used to provide financial support until 1998. We haven't heard anything from him since then. My mother didn't contacted him as well. We have totally lost our communication with our Dad.
Now that our mother is already dead, we got some hearsay that our father is also dead. We are hesitant to go to his house because we want to avoid scandalous confrontations. We are not even sure if his wife is aware of our existence.

1. Are we facing any legal problem because our parents falsified some information in our NSO authenticated birth certificates? Dad signed our birth certificates but they also indicated that they are married, providing date/place of marriage. They probably did that because we were born 1988-1991, before the RA 176 was issued.

2. I read from other posts that illegitimate children can get half of the legitimate's property. Just in case Dad is really dead,what documents do we have to provide so we can get our share of inheritance?

Thank you in advance!

you'll have to discuss inheritance with the other heirs. if they refuse, you'll have to file a petition in court for settlement of your father's estate.
