I am an American living in the Philippines and I had twin Daughters by a Philippine women in 2001. We never married, but she married a Mexican American and took the children out of the country without my permission to California on a K4 visa attached to her K3 marriage visa last March 2006.
At the time my name was not on the childrens brith certificates. Now however, my name is entered on the childrens birth certificates as the Father. I had it ammended after she took my kids. I managed to get a custody order from the Philippiine court granting me sole temporary custody. Can anyone tell me what the position of the State Dept. or the Claifornia court would be on this. I want the children returned to me in the Philippines. The Mother is not a U S Citizen yet or are the kids.
