I have two children with my ex-husband. Our marriage was annulled in 2006. The decision is silent in terms of the custody of the children and the children stay with me. In 2010, I married a foreigner and in 2011, my ex-husband issued an affidavit of custody and consent to stay and live with me abroad. We have lived outside the Philippines since 2011. Immigration requires us to provide a court order, even if I have the affidavit of custody for a residence visa.
My questions are: Would the Philippine court issue court order in my case? How can I get a court order if I am outside the Philippines? In case the court does not need to interfere because the biological father issued an affidavit of custody, are there any rulings or articles or any documents? If there are rulings or articles or any documents, can the Philippine embassy certify such rulings?
