Hello there --
-
How old is your niece and are her parents still living?
-
Do you want to do this for immigration purposes?

She is 4. Yes her parents are still living (her mother left her with her grandmother since she was a baby and her father does not acknowledge her). We do want her to immigrate to the U.S.

Hello again --

I am also a slow typer and I also apologize because I am not familiar with the family law process in the Philippines and so I must opt out of your question and place it back on the board --- I am not hopeful that there is anyone on Just Answer who handles Philippine law. I am able to tell you about Texas and US adoption laws and US immigration laws, but I cannot speak to Philippine law regarding a child in such a situation.

I do wish you the best of luck and I will alert customer service regarding your request for information on Philippine family law and perhaps they can assist you further with this.
