I have a friend who is here in Oregon on a 2 yrs greencard. Her problem was to bring her adopted son here in US but there is a big problem.

Situation:

The baby was given up by a biological mom. When BIO-MOM had the baby she did not put her name on Birth certificate instead they have my friends name as the mom. Then she met her hubby and when they process the K2 petition during the health exam they got in trouble since medical records show that she did not actually have a history of bearing a child. Despite the problem she was able to go through with the process and was able to go here but left her son in PH. She wants to know what she needed to do.

Thank you.

Did she actually legally adopt the son? If not she needs to go through the legal adoption process.

The child was not adopted legally. A lot can get away not following the right law of adoption in PH. The situation was when the biological mother had the baby in the hospital the real mom put my friends name on the birth certificate as the mother. There was no problem with that if only they stayed in PH however when the American guy petitioned them on a K2 visa thats when the problem started. During the medical exam the doctor found out that my friend did not actually show a medical history of bearing a child. Despite this problem during the interview she was given a visa but none to the child. They were told that by the lawyer that they have to go through a foreign adoption but how can she adopt a child whose birth certicate shows that she is the mother and biological mother is nowhere to be found.

Unfortunately she needs to go through the legal adoption process in the Philippines. The Philippine courts are familiar with this type of situation and can work it out. I would, however, be surprised if the entire thing can be accomplished in less than a year, and would not be surprised if it takes more than one year. That being said, I have no real personal experience with it (just what I have read about) and would advise that she seek a family law attorney in the Philippines. I do not know if anyone here can recommend one or not.
