Divorce in the Philippines the history

It was way back in 1390 that the Islamic face first arrived in what we now know as the Philippines. The Muslim community account for about 8 percent of the population of the Philippines with the most living on the beautiful Island of Minadano which has a total population of around 22 million people spread across  40,000 square miles.

Divorce in the Philippines for Battered Women

The Philippines is a very religious place to live in. The whole country revolves around the main Catholic religion, and to a passer-by it can be confusing to  see church services on the news channels and to see the huge influence the religious groups have on day-to-day running of the country. The Catholic church does not allow Divorce in the Philippines and it will be a very strong and radical President that will go as far as to change this.

Divorcing outside the Philippines may not be the answer

Contrary to what most people think, a divorce in the Philippines CAN be obtained and we are able to steer you through the whole process, saving you a considerable amount of time and money – GUARANTEED. ALSO … we can facilitate a divorce from anywhere in the Philippines and even from overseas.

Divorce in the Philippines

As a general rule, a divorce obtained abroad between two Filipino citizens is not valid or recognized in the Philippines. This is due to Article 15 of the Civil Code of the Philippines, which states that “laws relating to family rights and duties, or to the status, condition and legal capacity of persons are binding upon citizens of the Philippines, even though living abroad”. Moreover, Paragraph 3 of Article 17 of the same Code states that “prohibitive laws concerning persons, their acts or property, and those which have for their object public order, public policy and good customs shall not be rendered ineffective by laws or judgments promulgated, or by determinations or conventions agreed upon in a foreign country”.

The only exception is found in Article 26 of the Family Code of the Philippines, which states that “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.”

Divorce in the Philippines is on and off

Divorce in the Philippines is real

Divorce in the Philippines is real

Lawmakers appear to be on a collision course over efforts to introduce a divorce in the Philippines law in the Philippines, with two completely opposite bills pending in the House of Representatives.

Marikina Representative Marcelino Teodoro has filed an “Anti-Divorce and Unlawful Dissolution of Marriage Act” seeking a “guarantee that no legislation encouraging or facilitating the dissolution of marriage and recognising divorce shall be passed.”

Another pending bill coauthored by Gabriela Representatives Luzviminda Ilagan and Emerenciana de Jesus seeks to amend the Family Code to introduce a divorce provision, a move floated and supported by no less than Speaker Feliciano Belmonte soon after the House passed the reproductive health bill on third reading.

However, there is a legal way to Divorce in the Philippines!

Can People Divorce in the Philippines?

Divorce in the Philippines
People who say that divorce in the Philippines is not advisable for the Philippines forget or ignore our history. The ethno-linguistic communities of the Philippine archipelago before the Spanish conquest practiced divorce. We had a divorce law from 1917 until August 30, 1950, when the Civil Code of 1950 took effect. The latter law prohibited divorce for Filipinos, and the prohibition continues under the present Family Code. But Muslim Filipinos have always practiced divorce, which Philippine law allowed. Today, divorce continues to be available to Muslim Filipinos under the Code of Muslim Personal Law of the Philippines (Presidential Decree No. 1083), promulgated in 1977.

There is Divorce in the Philippines

Divorce in the Philippines

Laws on divorce and annulment are lunatic because they require one party to prove the other lunatic so the marriage can be declared never to have happened. This is just game playing and the court and the attorney fees hold it open only as a resource for the well to do.

Why not be honest? If the marriage is not working, it is not the job of the state or the church to force people to stay bound to one another. It is up to them. This is called freedom; the opposite which is bondage. Marriage is a gamble; either you win or you lose. There is more bondage in the Philippines and it looks like there will be burden and game playing forever.
