Before getting married, a USC acknowledged his fiancee's son by having the son carry his surname. After marriage the woman wants to get her son in the Philippines. Is he entitled to a CR2 visa? is there any link that will help her file and process the petition? thanks to all.

An american Citizen acknowledged a son of his fiancee when he was born, can this son be petitioned as a legal son of the american under the Family code of the Phils. he is a legal son. Can this son use the Child Citizenship Act of 2000 in the US?

This is a situation where the DNA of the child is not the parent listed on the BC.

The Non-DNA parent is a USC, what they have done is created problems for theirself.

Lying to immigration will come to haunt them, if they submitt the BC as is.

You can't get a CRBA if the USC isn't the biological parent of the child, but the USC can file a petition for the child as a step-parent.

Agreed, USCIS will require convincing proof of biological paternity for a child born out of wedlock. The two options would be (1) petition for the child as a step-parent, if married to the mom, or (2) adopt the child legally, and apply for him to be naturalized overseas using N-600K or petition for an immigrant visa as an adopted parent. If the USC adopts the child and petitions for an immigrant visa, the child would become a USC upon entering the U.S. as a legal permanent resident.
