Philipines laws dating age dating a french woman
Imagine meeting the woman of your dreams only to find out she is still ‘legally’ married with no ability to divorce?! this is where I tell you that life is not always fair. She will not be legally able to re-marry until the spouse passes away.
Some Filipinas are still unaware of the change in the law and under the impression they cannot re-marry due to a previous marriage to a foreigner. as long as that previous foreigner has divorced them legally in their own home-country, it now applies for them as well. If she can get a work visa or other visa to your own home-country it’s possible to live together, but if your own country recognizes her Philippine marriage as still valid (most do) then getting re-married in your own home-country would not be legally possible. let’s say Dwayne falls in love with Mariana the Filipina.
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.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.In either scenario I wish you all the best.[ One more thing..the information I am sharing with you here is fully referenced, so use the links provided to fact-check on your own.
