Romualdo Ragel, is a naturalized U.S. citizen. He has three (3) children outside of marriage in the Philippines. Mr. Ragel wanted to give all of his children outside his marriage a good future in the United States. His problem is how to prove to the U.S. Consul that these three are his children because they were not legitimated before they reach 18 years of age. He requested his relative Mr. Cesar Paradesa to find a lawyer who can help him accomplish his goal. Mr. Paradesa willingly gave all his support and seek the services of Atty. Crispin Caday Lozano to file a petition for them and process their papers to immigrate to the United States.

The US Immigration law requires that if a child was not legitimated before the child reaches the age of 18, the petitioner must establish a bona fide parent-child relationship before the child become 21 years old. With the immigration expertise of Atty. Crispin Caday Lozano, he was able to demonstrate that there is indeed a bona fide father-child relationship prior to his children’s 21st birthday by the preponderance of evidence. Atty. Lozano submitted evidence such as money remittance receipts, pension records, birth certificates, baptismal certificates, letters and phone calls, photos taken together, notarized affidavits of persons who have knowledge of their relationship and medical records. The USCIS approved the petitions based on these voluminous evidence. The three children Frances Ragel, Erwin Rommel Ragel and Ramin Farinas arrived in the United States in February 2012. Erwin Rommel Ragel and Ramin Farinas are now enlisted in the U.S. military to serve the country. Please see photo below.
