Any news on new divorce act passing through courts?

Recommended Posts

Hi 

Just after some upto date information on whether there’s news of the new divorce act passing through the courts aired on Filipino Tv earlier this year?

If not, the annulment process, still lengthy? Corrupt? Tough to get? Expensive?recommended?

Filipino gf is married still officially but 10 years separated.

 

TIA

Just joking!

Just remember its not a joke if her non-divorced husband is still living here in Philippines, is well connected, is vindictive enough to make your life miserable, or sees a lot of pesos that he may get his hands on.

Other than that, there are quite a few expats living with married filipinas who have a legal separation or a husband who does not care.  

How big a deal is it?  Well click this link for a lawyer who will help you sue your wife for adultery and get her and her lover thrown in jail for 6 years.

Ps the guy has moved on and has other kids so he would be guilty too? @Dave Hounddriver

Only the woman is guilty in the Philippines.

It's definitely hit and miss. The connected politician trying to push it through is in a relationship with someone else's wife. The law is ignoring him but the Catholic church is fighting it. If it's anything like the usual things here a lot will depend on where you live and who the husband is. 

If he's in a new relationship with kids the blackmail money could come in handy. 

It's definitely the two extremes here. You could go to jail, get kicked out of the country and never allowed to return or people will just shrug their shoulders and let you get on with it. 

My concern would be getting kicked out of the country without an appeal. Best to do it all legally even if it means getting raped by a lawyer.
