Hi,

I'd like to know if anyone has filed an application for Child Visa 101 here?
I am about to file one for my 15 year old son, problem is, I am married but have not been with his father for over 14 years and do not know his whereabouts, no support whatsoever. So having him sign a consent to remove my son from the Philippines is out of the question. Anyone here has had the similar situation? It says on the form that I need a court order for the sole custody of my son which i don't have. I don't know if I can just get something from DSWD stating I am a solo parent, then an affidavit from an Atty stating the same. If not, what should I do? I need help on this.

FORM 40CH
Part G – Parental responsibility (custody)
and guardianship
(only for a child under 18 years of age)
18 Do you have the sole legal right to determine where the child shall live
or to permanently remove the child from their home country?

If No
You must attach either a completed form 1229 Consent to
grant an Australian visa to a child under the age of
18 years or a statutory declaration from each of these
people giving permission for the child to migrate.


If Yes
Attach a certified copy of the court order giving you sole
legal right to determine where the child shall live or the
right to permanently remove the child from the country


Thanks in Advance.
