I'm in the UK and my son's father is on his birth certificate so he has Parental Responsibility, so I need his permission to remove the child from the UK. I've just got done getting a court order to allow me to do so but as the previous poster said, it depends on the country of birth and the rules in that country.

And that was my guess.

Anyway lots and lots of posts about this, a very common scenario so, hit the PI forum.

My understanding is that the father has no say regarding an illegitimate child.


PI forum

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Did anyone know about philippines rules about illigitimate child

For Philippines, illegitimate children are under the sole and full custody of the mother. So in your case, even if your son is using his dad's surname, you can still bring him to the US. You don't need the father's permission. You don't need anything from him. The US embassy is very much aware of this kind of situation so don't worry about it.
