This is a buddy of mine and he asked me to re post on all the AC boards, any help would be appreciated.
This situation is complicated I know..
I have a Filipina wife. She is Waray (from Samar) and is currently out of her mind, so I don't know what she is capable of.
I am legally married to her in Australia, but not in the PI.
My son was born in Australia, making him an Australian citizen. He is currently living with his crazy mother in AC on a one year Balikbayan visa. His mother is in possession of his passport.
My crazy ex-wife has made some threats that she intends making trouble for me in the PI. She is doing this because she wants more money than I'm willing to give her. I'm not sure that the immigration department would listen to her false claims of abuse or whatever else she can dream up about me, but I have to consider that it's possible.
I guess what I want to know is..
1. Do Philippines Immigration actually take action when crazy spouses go to them making complaints about their husbands?
2. If I take custody of my child without her consent would I be acting legally?
3. Can anyone recommend a good family lawyer in AC so I can be sure that it's legal?
