i am a U.S. citizen and i would like to file for divorce with my filipino husband?
my legal husband and i have been married for a little more than 5 years now but have been seperated for 4 and a half years of that time. we were young and foolish and realized soon after how incompatible we were. he now has a family with another woman and also has 2 small children with her. I also have had a child with another man, and he is now 3who i am hoping to marry, after the div0rce. i read an article online that stated:
“a marriage between a Filipino citizen and a foreigner is validly celebrated and a divorce is thereafter validly obtained abroad by the alien spouse capacitating him or her to remarry, the Filipino spouse shall have capacity to remarry under Philippine law.”
does that mean i can remarry to another filipino citizen afterwards also??i am very confused on the process and need much help understanding what to do. my biggest problem is that i dont have any ideaw where to begin.if you have any information,any at all, i’d appreciate it. Thank you.
if you are us citizen, living in us, got married in us – there should be no problem with Filipino law! I mean in case that you would go to the Filipino consulate and filed for your husbands citizenship and got married (legally) in Filipino law then yes, you would have problem now!
If I were you I would go for consultation with the lawyer and then just file for divorce
