The OP is not going to travel w/ her son....they are pursuing a "follow to join" scenario. I don't know where you would get such an affidavit...but perhaps the US embassy in the Phillipines may be able to help you.

Good luck,

if you were not married to the father, you have sole and full custody of your child.

Where do you see that? She stated that she will file a petition for him to follow her to the US....I understood that to mean that she will arrive her and her son will follow at a later date, presumably alone. That's why she thought she needed said affidavit.

she hasn't stated whether she will return to the Philippines to bring the son here or if the son will travel here alone or someone other than her. that's where a DSWD Travel Clearance would come into play.

I think her concern is whether she needs permission from the father to bring her son here. since she has full custody, I do not believe so. someone correct me if I'm wrong on that issue.

Well by reading the link posted earlier by another member, I don't think she needs permission from the father either....but then, from what I glimpse on some of the posts, sometimes things are a bit "hinky" in the PI. (Like having to wait a horribly long time to get an annulment in a situation when one spouse clearly abandoned the marriage a long time ago. But as there's no divorce, I understand the need for this avenue....I just don't understand why it takes such a long time.)

Perhaps someone who has done this, had their child emigrate from the PI without stated permission of the long absent father, will happen upon this thread and offer their take. :)

In our situation, the biological father disappeared before our daughter was born. my wife was never married to the father. he was not listed on our daughter's birth certificate.

not one question was asked about the biological father during the entire process in our case.

Ah, but in the case of the OP, the father's name is listed on the BC, so it may come up. :unsure:

Since the OP is a single mother, under the Philippine laws, she has sole custody of the child hence no need for an affidavit of consent from the biological father to travel outside the philippines even if his name is on the BC of the child.
