hello,

i have kids from my former marriage. i just want to know if anybody out there is in the same situation? will i be asked to provide a DSWD clearance before i can bring my kids along? thanks in advance. :star:

Hi,

I don't know what you call a DSWD clearance. But.

In my case, my daughter will follow me as a K2.

I just received my packet 3 from Paris embassy, and, for the K2, they ask for a notarized letter that the other parent agree that the child will go to the US. They ask also to have a notarized photo identification from the other parent. It mean that the other parent has to also get a notarized photocopy of his/her passport.

In my case, i add to this the court order who says that my daughter has to live with me and that the father agree with our move to the US.

I hope it will help you.

Yoko

I agree with lokashadow04:

you don't need DSWD clearance if your the biological mother of the children...but i think you need to get a Travel to Consent from the biological father of your children and have it notarized...coz you will need that....

We have opted for the CR1/CR2 route after getting our I130 NOA2.  My concern is my 5-year old daughter.  Her father and I were never married and he has not given any support for her nor has she made much effort to see her, nor does his name appear in her birth certificate.  She has been with me since birth.  When I first applied for her passport in 2003, I was asked to execute an affidavit of illegitimacy but was not looked for when I renewed it.My question is, would I need additional documentation when I give her DS-230 to NVC?

Nope u dont need it sis.as long as ur not married to the biological father,and tell them since birth u have no contact with him,i never have any issue on my application and also during my interview at USEM,the CO just asked me when was the last time i saw my son biological father,,then i answered like 6 yrs ago,,then thats it,i also called DSWD and they said no need for affidavit of consent from the father...

Hope this help sis,

God bless,

Irene

Since the biological father is not on the birth certificate, then you won't need to get a letter of consent from him. Just be sure to have a certified copy of your child's birth certificate on your carry on when you leave the Philippines.
