I don't know anything about the adoption laws in the Philippines. I did notice quite a few older  foreigners who had some very young accomplices. I don't know if they adopted them or if they were their caretakers.

I am sure that it is doable. Straightforward? Doubt it.

The law and requirements varies depending on if the child to be adopted is related to one of the adopting parents (niece, nephew, etc).  Here is a link to get you started.  http://www.dswd.gov.ph/faqs/local-adoption-requirements-and-procedures/

Thankyou

Actually, I haven't yet...  Mom has known my (and Av's) intentions since before I came to the Philippines...  When I do officially ask Mom, it will probably be either for us to set a date or we're leaving in the morning for the JP...  Heck, Mom gave me her blessings at Christmas without my asking!  But she also asked that we try to wait a year - just to make sure we still feel the same way before tying the handcuffs...  Mom is a very very smart woman!


MOTHER KNOWS BEST


I waited a year before I married my Filipina. She had no problem waiting.

CAUTION!

 

The Philippines is  a signatory to the Hague Convention on International Adoption; an adoption in the Philippines is governed by the Convention.

 

Some background here:

For UK nationals the relevant UK regulations are here - the important point to note is that the UK Government does not recognise an adoption in the Philippines.

I don't know, but I would  expect the position in the USA and in Canada and Australia to be similar.
