If you have conducted your research, you know that their rate is one of the most affordable in the market. Please click here for more details about the offering.
Hi to All, Please take extra care guys wherever you are, take care of your love ones too. Especially to our friends in Singapore, more being confirmed, and are through community spread, no longer from people who travelled from China. Observe proper hygiene at all times and also monitor our little ones as they often put their hands in their mouth.

    @Noodles12 wala ako experience sa ganyan pero just my opinion.
    1. I think no dapat kasi legal custody ang tanong.
    2. Yes ata dapat. Si father ba ni child walang guardianship rights?

    Pero baka meron ditong same case mo para makasagot ng maayos :)

    Si biological father ni child eh walang guardianship since day 1. wala din siya sa birth cert. Should I say Yes padin?

    Medyo confusing ung question eh nde ko sure kung pde pertaining to my partner which is the biological mother or kung ibang tao pa.

    @Noodles12 ang lam ko, meron dapat papirmahan sa biological parent. Form 1229. Pero since wala naman name nya sa birthcert, di ko sure kung kelangan pa.

    May nabasa din ako na ganyan pero dun sa mga married ata or talagang nag susustento sa child. pero sa case kasi namin since day 1 actually since nabuntis ung partner ko naglaho na si guy.

    siguro pde ko naman ilagay sa statutory dec ko for defacto evidence yung tungkol dun noh? additional supporting document?

    Dun kasi sa kakilala ko, hindi rin sila married pero palitan talaga sila ng custody ng bata. Arrangement lang nila.. kung naglaho na talaga, baka uubra na rin yung statutory declaration na ikaw na rin talaga ang parang tumatayong tatay..

    GUYYSSSSS!!!! THANK YOU SA LAHAT NG TIPS, ENCOURAGEMENT, MOTIVATION, PRAYERS EVERYTHING!!! We have our visa grant na. Kanina pa palang 7am. Now ko lang natingnan. Ang una kong nakita ung Skillselect email na removed na daw skillselect EOI ko. Sabi ko bakit. Naloka pa ako nung una. Un pala succeeding emails may grant na. GSM Brisbane nag grant sa amin. Suzanne muna ung CO contact, then after 15 days, si Alexandra na nag grant.

    Sa mga waiting pa rin, keep the faith. God is preparing a surprise for you. Malapit na kayo makareceive ng golden e-mail.

    Kahit ineexpect ko sya, iba pa pala pag andyan na. Nakakaiyak. To God be the glory of this victory!
