I am now married but I have an illegitimate son. My problem is the late registration of his birth. Also, he is using my surname (when I was single) but his biological father acknowledged him (acknowledgement of paternity was signed by the father).

My question is, bakit hindi isinunod ng Civil Registry yung surname niya after his father? Di po ba dapat ganon?

Since birth, wala akong na receive na financial support from the father of my child. I am jobless now because I resigned from my job years ago and financially sobrang nahihirapan ako especially now that my son is already in high school and may 2 kids ako with my husband.
I want to ask for financial support po sana from his father but I don’t know how to start.
Atty. Please enlighten me.
Many thanks…

The use of the surname po ay with the father's consent at dapat po sinulat niyo yung panganlan nung bata with the father's surname. Hindi porket acknowledged po yung bata ay automatic na po na father's surname na po ang gagamitin, may choice po yung nanay.

Nonetheless, dahil acknowledge po sya, pwede po kayo humingi ng financial support para sa bata mula sa tatay by filing a case for a TPO/PPO or support.
