For a recent article on this recent update of the Adultery laws.” I am both an optimist and a romantic. As I’ve mentioned so many times at the site, there truly is a cultural difference from Western thinking that encourages, in my opinion, Filipina women to enter into marriage with a far greater commitment.
I choose to believe that if two people love each other they can somehow, someway find a way to (legally) be together.. Most are very loving, humble, faithful and hold to a moral character greater than what most of us ‘foreign’ men are accustomed to and it can make for a wonderful life in choosing the right one as a wife.
It is very common for men to arrive here, start making plans to marry and only then find out from the local Philippine government that you must prove you are divorced from any previous marriages, irregardless of where those marriages took place.
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.
If either of those apply, the ‘accusing’ spouse cannot press charges.
Another thing, ONLY the spouse can file the charges, no meddling 3rd party (neighbors, friends, family) can file Adultery charges.. Again, it is still unclear if these conditions were incorporated into the current changes in the law this year or not. But I believe there’s always a way if a person gets the right counsel, preferably from an attorney if needed. S., one inexpensive way to get unlimited consultation with an Attorney is via the I wish you all the best in your search for love and romance here in the Philippines.
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.
Yes, language like this still exists on the books here in the Philippines and it can get you as well as your ‘Separated’ Filipina into a lot of trouble from the ‘offended’ other spouse. The ‘better’ news is that (and this is still unclear if Congress incorporated the following changes to the law or not, no data at this time.)..
Especially if this takes place by cohabitation in Now.. Only recently, in April of 2012 did the Philippines Congress convene on the issue of clarifying the laws regarding Adultery. they did not lessen the punishments or remove the Adultery laws.. the ‘accused’ (Defendant) spouse can counter and have the charges dropped from the ‘accusing’ (Prosecuting) spouse IF the ‘accusing’ spouse either (a) has been committing the same infidelity themselves or (b) has abandoned the home physically and financially for more than 1 year.
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..
