Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Are you saying you adopted the baby?
Did the lawyer get an order called a "declaration of parentage"?
What legal documents do you have?
Does the admission of paternity say that your husband is actually the biological father of the baby?
I don't know the law in the Philippines but clearly that Affidavit is false as you are not the natural parents of course and I don't know how you could have sworn that Affidavit for the lawyer or how the lawyer would use it.
In Canada with a surrogate you get a declaration of parentage from the court and then the birth certificate shows you as the parents but no one who is not the natural parent could ever attest to that fact.If the child was your natural child then the child is considered to be a Canadian citizen and then you just need proof of citizenship and then a passport.
But I honestly cannot tell you what to do here given what the lawyer did.
I think you had better immediately consult with a lawyer in your city in Canada who can best deal with this odd situation.
You are very welcome.
I hope this works out easily!
