  1. […] PHILIPPINE LAWS on CHILDREN December 2009 5 […]

  2. My child was born on 2000 but we only got married with my wife on 2005. I went overseas for the last 3 years for work to give them a better living. When I came home I have known that my wife is having an affair with someone. Since adultery/infidelity has been committed by my wife and has no plans of cutting her affair to an end, can I solely get the custody of our 10 year old daughter?

  3. I am sorry but I don’t think I can be of help since I am not a lawyer but an advocacy filmmaker. I have no lawyer friends that specialize on this matter.

  4. Glad to see that this site works well on my iPhone , everything I want to do is functional. Thanks for keeping it up to date with the latest.

  7. Does the Philippines have a kids magna carta?

  8. I do not know of any as yet on a specific Magna Carta for Children in the Philippines…The recent ones we had were the Magna Carta for Women and for the Disabled. If at all there are any on children, they are incorporated on laws concerning women. But UNESCO has issued a Magna Carta for Children which any country should be adopting. Here’s the link to it: http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0007/000781/078176eo.pdf

  16. hehe.. helo, i have a project about the protection of children, women, disabled and senior citizens in the philippines, with regards to this we are required to make a compilation of it, can you help me find other laws relating to it? hehe thank you

  17. Why don’t you go to the Supreme Court Library or The National Library to do the research for all the pertinent laws that you need if they are not available online or in your local government library? Ask the librarian! You can also approach a practicing lawyer directly re the matter.

  18. Hi… I just want to ask about, what kind of charges you can put to a person you don’t personally know who posted a photo of you child without your permission? And the photo is stating a false information about your family? I just want to help a friend on what kind of charges she can file on that person. Thank you

  19. Hi!
    So sorry but I am not in a position to answer your question. You better consult a lawyer. I am a documentary filmmaker…

  20. I think makukuha nyo po ang custody if you are going to file a case, grounds para makuha nyo daughter nyo..nga lang makukulong wife u po if mapatunayan

  21. Paano po kung yung tao hindi nyo kaano ano sumugod sa kwarto nyo nagbanta banta sa harap ng baby na papaulanan daw kami ng bala at nagwala at naghamon ng away sa loob pa mismo ng kwarto kung nasan nakahiga baby ko. Ano po kaya pwede kung isampa sa kanyang kaso sa nadulot nyang trauma sa amin ng baby ko. Kase yung asawako magsasampa na tungkol sa ginawa nung lalake na pagbabanta at panunugod sa kanya. Pero gusto ko ding magsampa dun naman sa nadulot nya sa aming trauma ng baby ko

  22. Kung nakapasok sa kwarto nyo mismo, ibig sabihin kakilala nyo sya? Tresspassing ang ginawa nya unang-una. Pwede sa barangay nyo muna ireport o ireklamo. O kaya, dumeretso na kayo sa abogado para mabigyan kayo ng tamang advice tungkol sa kasong dapat isampa laban sa kanya. Traumatic nga ho nangyari sa Inyo…

  23. how much is the monthly amount for the children of 7 yrs. old and 5 yrs. old for their food, education and all other basic needs be given by the father since the father is already married to another woman. The parents of the children are not married.
