6 posts in this topic

Filed: Timeline

Hi first time to post on here..My wife and stepdaughter are filipino, they have had their interviews at the embassy and we are waiting for a Cenomar requested from the US embassy. My question is, do I need to get consent from the paternal father to bring my step daughter to the US? He abandoned both of them when she was 1 year old, she is now 13. We dont even know where he is, we had to run a ad in the Manila paper when we had the annulment done to notify him.Just trying to be prepared, thanks if anyone has any info

Is your wife the sole custodian? If she is than no you don't need his consent. If they got joint custody than yes.

This is not true....US Citizens can petition for the step daughter or son as a child....and no permission is needed....I have an Immigration Lawyer tell me the same and friends who have gone through this without any permission slip needed.

Somewhat country dependent, my stepdaughter could not even leave Venezuela with her biological fathers consent. While he hasn't seen her in seven years, and wife had full custody, he still have visitation rights.

Besides that court paper giving his consent we also needed another piece of paper prepared by a notary showing the precise date, time, and flight number of the plane she was to board. Without this, she couldn't even board the plane. What the USCIS wanted to see, was the court paper giving his consent.

But this varies considerable with whatever agreement our Department of State has with some odd 200 different countries, and they all are different. Can go to the DOS site, look up your country, and learn the laws these guys came up with.
