Dear Sir/Madam, I would like to inquire about annulment like how long it will take, how much it will cost and what are the requirements that I need to submit?Filipino citizens, no matter what their country of residence must follow the procedure indicated in the Family Code of the Philippines to have their marriage nullified or voided by filing a Petition of Annulment of Marriage before the pertinent Office of the Executive Clerk of Court of the Regional Court. My husband obtained a divorce in the USA, am I now allowed to remarry? But this is a special circumstance which is covered by the Family Code of the Philippines: ART. All marriages solemnized outside the Philippines in accordance with the laws in force in the country where they were solemnized, and valid there as such, shall also be valid in this country, except those prohibited under Articles 35(1), (4), (5) and (6), 36, 37 and 38.Where 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.Just a reminder that there are actually 3 major categories with which you may fall under if you are interest to apply for a passport at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).These are NEW PASSPORTS, PASSPORT RENEWAL and LOST PASSPORT.i have been never happy with this guy but i survived just to see my father happy and he just died last year.and my husband is abroad since last 3 years and her family is always threatening me and he too is always threatening me that i will do this and that to u. i have filled the form for cancellation of marriage last year but he is not agreeing to sign it.Based on this the Filipino Citizen may now apply to have the foreign divorce validated by the courts of the Philippines and may marry again.To do this, the petitioner must show that the divorce was obtained in conformity of the foreign laws of the country of the foreign citizen.We need this letter for the application of her visa. Irene, 1 – Each country has its own laws and will treat the divorce or annulment obtained abroad differently.2 – Maybe some countries will allow it but in the Philippines he will be considered a bigamist and can be charged with the crime of bigamy and risk from 6 to 12 years in prison.
