Cebuana dating filipina
I am not an attorney nor am I in any way providing anyone with the most current legal stances in place.
The information here is for educational purposes only and any person should consult with an Immigration Attorney before making any important decisions or actions. (Even though your plans may be to make the Philippines your new home.) Even if you plan to take a few years before getting married, which is my advice by the way, one thing you will need to bring with you are your divorce papers. the final, deciding document which declares you are legally divorced if you have been previously married in your home-country.
Mariana is now a target to be jailed by her first husband (just out of spite) for committing Adultery..
which just so happens to be illegal in the Philippines.
The divorce or ‘dissolution’ process is not legally recognized here. But if you are a foreigner chances are you don’t know ‘the right people’ and will get ripped off by scammers who promise for a couple thousand in foreign currency they can make it happen. If, you as a foreigner come and marry a Filipina and then..
But the annulment process passes through several hands and if not everybody is on the same page.. for whatever reason you later decide you want to divorce.. You will have to return to your home-country and file for divorce there.
let’s say your plan is to come to the Philippines, get to know some lovely ladies and choose the best one to be your wife. However, there are a few things to know ahead of time so your experience does not get snagged on a legal issue along the way. Take time to know your prospective Filipina fiance’. Not only get to know her as a person, but her marital status as well.
The good news is, if you come prepared you will be fine. As you will soon find out, there can be a few hurdles to cross at times.
So, if you never did get legally divorced in your home-country but plan on re-marrying in the Philippines that is one loose end you will need to tie up before boarding a plane here. This is how you will present the Divorce Decree or Certificate of Death in order to prove you are legally free to “contract” marriage. Once you have this it is up to you whether you and your Filipina bride will officiate the wedding via a Priest at a church or at the government offices via a Judge or Judge’s Appointee.you will need to (a) Have her legally ‘Served’ with the Subpoena for Dissolution of Marriage and (b) before you can even file, you may have to re-establish your Residency in your home-country for perhaps 6 months. Let’s say ‘Joe’ arrives in the year 2000 and marries ‘Grace’, the Filipina.Two years later, Joe goes back home and gets a legal divorce on Grace. So, Joe returns to the Philippines to find that the Filipino courts still consider her married to him.. He marries a second Filipina in 2003 and is now married to one woman.. This kept the first Filipina wife from being able to meet and marry ‘Bob’ after her husband ‘Joe’ divorced her, because the Filipino government didn’t acknowledge her as divorced.For more info on the laws affecting this, Not only is it illegal for you to have sexual intercourse with another man’s “paper-wife”..but it will be counted as even more aggravated that you lived with her in such a way that was “flagrant” and “indecent” to the public at large.
