Winston, Regarding your Child Custodial Rights...

Postby Mr S » Sat Jul 05, 2008 8:48 am

I've decided to post a reply from a local Filipino attorney regarding child custody. Previously I've told you the same information numerous times in various formats but you don't listen or care to follow-up on what I've already stated. If you have more specific questions contact the lawyer yourself...

***************************************************************************************************

There are many questions to be answered. The most important answers are as follows:

1. The child is both a Filipino and a US citizen.

2. The mother has custody of the child until the child is aged seven. Unless she is disqualified due to insanity, incapability, serious diseases, immorality, etc.

3. The child should be registered in the US Embassy.

4. Both mother and father share in the custody of the child. Both have responsibilities and the right to the custody of the child.

5. Legal remedies can be obtained to force the mother to register the child with the US Embasy.

6. A case study will be conducted to determine who is the best guardian for the child.

Please call me up at my office.

Best regards,

Atty. Ciriaco S. Calalang

Thanks, but my question was, if the child is awarded custody to the mother, does the father have visitation rights? If so, how long, how many days, and what is the duration guaranteed? And are we talking a few hours or can I demand that the child stay overnight?

You need to call the lawyer that's why I put the info on there in the first place. You can't keep asking these kind of questions to just anybody, you're going to get all kinds of different answers. Talk to a professional if you really want the answers. Keep asking strangers with no Philippine legal experience if you want to keep going around in circles.
