Divorcing in the Philippines

Every month we receive six or seven requests for divorces that do not progress past the initial inquiry.

Mainly these requests come from Filipinas who are stuck in an unhappy or unworkable marriage and are desperately seeking a way out.

Their husbands are not working and cannot feed or clothe their family and most domestic tasks are left to the woman.   These women barely scrape through each day to feed the children and sort of exist in a form of total exhaustion.

Although the husband does not have a regular income he does seem to find money for alcohol, gambling, cigarettes and often another woman.

Many of these women have been subjected to quite brutal beatings from their spouses but are reluctant to call the police in fear of reprisals from her husband’s family.  Each drunken attack on the woman leaves her in fear of another unwanted pregnancy.

On the other hand we receive many inquiries from foreigners who have met a beautiful Filipina but he discovers she is already married.  Often these girls have been abandoned by their boyfriends or husbands and left to fend for themselves.

Suddenly a foreigner comes along and a caring relationship is formed.   As love blossoms and they meet for a month or so they both decide they begin making plans for their future together.

The issue now becomes one of “is she free to marry”?  Often the answer is that she is not free to marry.

After discussions with many people including lawyers, they learn the only way to break that marriage is through an Annulment.

So they start to talk with a lawyer.  They are soon shocked and dismayed to learn that an annulment is expensive (350,000 plus) and might take several years to reach a conclusion.  If the lawyer is really honest he will tell them that not all annulments are granted and some end in failure.

Then they have to go through the worry of making such a big decision.  The girl is usually willing to start the annulment process as it will give her the opportunity to become free and possibly marry the foreigner which might lead to her being able to begin a new life in another country.

Sometimes they are forced to make the decision to reject the annulment way simply because of the high cost and length of time involved.  Then suddenly two people have had their hopes and plans destroyed and are left wondering what to do.

So if you are reading this and some parts of it sound familiar to your own experiences take heart because there is another and much easier way!

This other way is much quicker and cheaper and is guaranteed to result in the woman becoming free to marry the love of her life.

Abolishment of Divorce

During World War II almost the entire world was entwined in battles that eventually ended with the fall of many superpowers. Not only did this war change the face of the planet but it also changed the lives of so many who fought for love and country. Lands which were previously unknown became a focal point to obtaining peace in this wartime era. The Philippines was a super fortress and for those who wanted to occupy it they would have to fight long and hard for it. Those that came here to fight returned later in life to love it and create families among the Filipino people. During the 1950s divorce in the Philippines had been abolished under the new family code which was put into law by its people. Now, nearly 60 years later, this law and many others are being looked at in a new and modern way. 

For those who were tormented by the horrific effects of World War II many spent their lives seeking peace for themselves. When marrying under the guise of the Philippines these worldly hero’s often are cemented by the laws in which they chose to marry under. Through no fault of their own, soldiers who married here had no real way out of a bad relationship without going through a long and messy annulment.

Even after World War II the Philippines returned to being a country which supported the wars of America throughout mainland Asia including the Vietnam War. This land has been a great haven for those looking to live a simple life and for many it is a dream come true to settle there. For those who did not find peace in these islands or with their Filipino wife has long been in need of a divorce in the Philippines. With a new era of people not blinded by the light of the Catholic Church, today it is possible to obtain such a divorce.

Meet a beautiful Filipina

It is not like the west where some people become famous through a big divorce case, as in the Philippines there are really few cases of people having a divorce in the Philippines.

It is not like the west where some people become famous through a big divorce case, as in the Philippines there are really few cases of people having a divorce in the Philippines.

Meet a beautiful Filipina and fall in love straight away. And why would you not? The beauty of the Philippine race is known globally. With their mixture of Malay, Filpino and Spanish and other European mixes it is no wonder that the beauty of the Filipina is known globally. Many men come to the Philippines and fall in love with the beauty and the gentle and passive ways of the Filipinas, and in many cases a long-term relationship develops and the word marriage is brought up.

But many Filipinas are already married and cannot get a divorce in the Philippines or an annulment either. The cost and time required to have annulment is beyond most financially, and therefore the marriage continues without love and sometimes with violence. The divorce bill stagnates in the legal system and for the moment divorce in the Philippines continues to be a dream for most Filipinas.

 

Divorcing from her ex

But if you know how and have the right contacts it is very possible to obtain a fully legal divorce for your Filipina girlfriend. It is not well advertised and kept off the radar as not to offend the church and the control it has over most of the Roma Catholic population of the country. Be that said Divorce can be had in the Philippines.

Philippines and Celebrities

. There is no divorce in the Philippines, but if you are really rich you can get annulments with huge pay-outs. High profile cases include the presidents sister Cris Aquino who  has a very public battle with her husband

For most westerners coming to the Philippines and seeing the value that most Filipinos have on “celebrities”, it will appear very strange. Huge pockets of the population live on starvation rations and yet will watch the TV Soaps and seem to know everything about the actors or actresses and will talk about their wealth and shopping trips to Hong Kong by private planes.

The distribution of wealth in the Philippines is still a scandal. There is no divorce in the Philippines, but if you are really rich you can get annulments with huge pay-outs. High profile cases include the presidents sister Kris Aquino who  has a very public battle with her husband.

Dollars and No Divorce

If you have a few thousand dollars you can get an annulment after a few years, but for most the simple truth is that there is not a easy way to get split from an unfaithful or loveless relationship. Therefore it is very easy to see a blind acceptance of men having other women and other families, if only divorce in the Philippines was allowed!

Marrying a foreigners is often the only way out of poverty for most Filipinos, but if they (Filipina) is already married this will put a huge financial and time burden on the foreigner to get the marriage annulled. But for certain parts of the population there is a legal divorce system.

Spanish who took over the Philippines

1945 saw the Philippines devastated by the war with over a million Filipinos dead during the battle with the Japanese, and many thousands of those were killed by bombs from American bombers who had decided to bomb Manila to get rid of Japanese invaders. The process killed thousands and thousands of innocent Filipinos too.

The process killed thousands and thousands of innocent Filipinos too.

It was the Spanish who took over the Philippines in 1565 to 1821 and the country is named after the King of Spain King Philippe, hence Philippines. It was during this time that the people of the Philippines were forced to become Roman Catholic. There was a brief handover of power to the British for two years who captured Manila, but it went back to Spain after that two years.

Divorce in the Philippines is not easily available to the masses thanks to the huge influence of the Catholic Church and its ongoing influence over the governments over all the years, and even up to today the church is extremely powerful.

Good Bye To Spain

In 1898 the Spanish handed over the country for $20 million to the United States of America after losing the Spanish-American war. This meant that the Spanish rule was over, and now the Americans arrived and brought education and to the masses. But in all the time the Americans were in the Philippines ruling, they never changed the laws on Divorce in the Philippines. It is a wonder why this was not done.

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.
