Minor Child and Embassy Question

My Pinay Fiancee' has an illigitimate child (age 4) and after researching Philippine law, The Philippine Bureau of Immigration does not require a release from the father of the child. Does the United States require a release from the father??

The Nairobi Embassy required that I prove sole legal custody of my son or attend the interview with his biological father so that he can state in person that he has authorized travel for my son. I opted to file for sole legal custody in which case as the sole custodian, the embassy did not require consent from the father since he has basically legally given up his rights as a father by not even contesting sole custody. I would expect that the US embassy policies are generally the same however, I can't be certain and perhaps others more familiar with your embassy can assist. If it is like the Nairobi embassy, then your fiancee should be ready either to attain sole legal custody or attend the interview with the father. All the best!

"Where there is faith

There is a voice calling, keep walking

You’re not alone in this world

Where there is faith

There is a peace like a child sleeping

Hope everlasting in He who is able...

It is a wonderful, powerful place

Where there is faith" 4Him

Kenya is not the Philippines.... policy is based on the laws of the country.
