Today I was just looking again to make sure I have everything ready for my trip to the Philippines in dealing with paper work for the marriage license and I goggle something and then check the Embassy website an to my shock their was new info that was never stated since many have gotten married several months ago and stated to go early to the Embassy to get the Legal Capacity to Marry but now like everything here in the U.S. they throw more things at you to go through and make you pay. If did not see this now I would be S.O.L. and would had lost a day in dealing with getting my marriage license when I had arrived. So for those planing who are planing to get married in the next couple of months a must read. I will put the link and copy all info from the web site. http://manila.usemba...v/marriage.html

Getting Married in the Philippines
The Philippine Government requires all foreigners to provide a "Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage" from his/her embassy before filing for a marriage license. Below are the instructions for applying for the U.S. Embassy's version of that document.

Starting August 1st, obtaining a Legal Capacity to Marry in Embassy Manila will be by appointment only. Please read the rules and regulations below before booking your appointment.

Consular Agency, Cebu: Monday through Friday 9:00am – 11:00am

Booking an Appointment for a Legal Capacity to Marry:

Step 1:

Read the information below to ensure that you understand the rules for the "Affidavit in Lieu of a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage."


Step 2:

Book an appointment by clicking here. Please select “Request notarial and other services not listed above.” Print the confirmation of your appointment.

Step 3:

Please bring to your confirmation printout, all divorce decrees or death certificates that show the U.S. citizen is free to marry, and valid U.S. passport to your appointment. Please bring $50 in cash (or Philippine Peso equivalent) or credit card.

DISCLAIMER: The information in this circular relating to the legal requirements of the Philippines is provided for general information only. Questions involving interpretation of specific Philippine laws should be addressed to an attorney. American diplomatic and consular officers do not have legal authority to perform marriages.

Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage

Any foreigner who wishes to marry in the Philippines is required by the Philippine Government to obtain from his/her Embassy a "Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage" before filing an application for a marriage license. This certification affirms that there are no legal impediments to the foreigner marrying a Filipino (i.e, that the foreigner is already married to someone else). Unlike the Philippines, the U.S. Government does not keep a central statistical registry for births, marriages and deaths and cannot verify this information. Instead, the Philippine Government accepts an "Affidavit in Lieu of a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage." Americans may execute this affidavit at the American Embassy in Manila or the U.S. Consular Agency in Cebu. Personal appearances of the American citizen applicant cannot be waived, but the fiance(e) need not be present. Philippine authorities will not accept any substitute document initiated in the United States.

Applicants may apply for the "Affidavit in Lieu of a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage" at the Embassy's American Citizen Services Branch by appointment only. There is a fee of $50.00 or its peso equivalent for the affidavit, payable in cash only.

The Affidavit is notarized by a U.S. consular officer. The consular officer can refuse to perform this service if the document will be used for a purpose patently unlawful, improper, or inimical to the best interest of the United States. Entering into a marriage contract with an alien strictly for the purpose of enabling entry to the United States for that individual is considered an unlawful act. Section 4221 of Title 22 United States Code provides penalties for individuals who commit perjury in an affidavit taken by a consular officer.

Additional Requirement for U.S. Military Personnel

U.S. military personnel should contact their personnel office regarding Department of Defense joint service regulations.

The Marriage Application Process

Once an American citizen has obtained from the Embassy an Affidavit in Lieu of a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Marry, he/she can file an application for a marriage license at the office of the Philippine Civil Registrar in the town or city where one of the parties is a resident. The license is a requirement for either a civil or church wedding in the Philippines. The U.S. citizen applicant will need to present:

the Affidavit in Lieu of a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Marry;
divorce decree(s) or death certificate(s) required to verify civil status and capacity to marry;
U.S. passport;
documentation regarding paternal consent or advice, if applicable.
A judge, a minister or any other person authorized by the Government of the Philippines can perform the marriage. Marriage applicants aged 18 to 21 must have written parental consent. Applicants aged 22 to 24 must have received parental advice. Philippine law prohibits the marriage of individuals under the age of 18.

Philippine law prescribes a ten-day waiting period from the filing of the application to the issuance of the marriage license. The license is valid for 120 days and may be used anywhere in the Philippines.

Marriage to a U.S. citizen confers neither citizenship nor an automatic eligibility for entry to the United States. If the U.S. citizen does not reside in the Philippines, the Petition for Immigrant Visa (I-130) must be filed through the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in the United States. Only U.S. citizens resident in the Philippines may file an I-130 petition with DHS the U.S. Embassy.

Any questions about filing an immigrant visa petition to bring the spouse to the United States should be directed to the nearest office of Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services, the State Department's Visa Office (202) 663-1225 or, while in the Philippines, to the American Embassy in Manila.

Church Wedding Requirements

Note: A Catholic religious ceremony may be performed even without a civil ceremony and the marriage will still be considered legal in the Philippines. Other non-Catholic churches may require documents and/or seminars not specified below. To be sure, inquire with the church in which you plan to be married. The process below describes the general procedures for arranging a Catholic wedding in the Philippines. However, the policies and procedures of individual churches may vary.

Baptismal and Confirmation Certificates – Required for both the bride and the groom. These documents must be new, be annotated: "FOR MARRIAGE PURPOSES ONLY", and have been obtained not more than three months before the date of marriage;

For mixed marriage (different religions) – a dispensation must be secured from the Parish Office which will be released after the canonical interview with the parish priest or his assistant. These have to be presented one week before the wedding.

Marriage License – for those who are first married in a civil ceremony, a certified true photocopy of the Marriage Contract with the registry number of the city or town where the marriage was performed must be submitted one week before the wedding date.

Canonical Interview – The parish priest or his assistant will conduct an interview with the bride and the groom one month before the wedding date. The interview will be scheduled upon the signing of the application form.

Pre-Marriage Seminar – The seminar will be scheduled during the canonical interview or you may inquire at the parish office. Some churches will allow you to attend other pre-wedding seminars such as the Discovery Weekend or Catholic Engaged Encounter.

Permission – The bride must receive permission to marry from her parish, if the venue is in another parish.

Wedding Banns – The couple must post the schedule of their wedding in their respective parishes. These will be provided during the canonical interview and have to be immediately brought to the respective parishes of the bride and the groom for posting. These have to be returned to the office after three Sundays. (The respective parishes may ask some requirements for the posting of the banns i.e. a picture each from the bride and the couple.)

List of names and addresses of principal sponsors (Ninongs and Ninangs) – The list has to be submitted to the parish office one week before the wedding date. Church policy requires at least a pair of sponsors and, ideally, a maximum of six sponsors.

For widow or widower – A copy of the death certificate of the former spouse must be presented to the parish office.

For renewal of vows – Remember to bring a copy of the Catholic Marriage Contract.
Civil Wedding

A couple who chooses to be married in a civil ceremony will need to apply for a marriage license. Once the license is obtained, they need to go to a judge or a mayor to administer the solemnization of the marriage. There is a ten-day waiting period from the date of the civil wedding before the issuance of the marriage contract.


Alternative to Marriage Abroad

Instead of the procedures presented above, it is possible to file a petition for an alien to enter the United States as the fiance(e) of an American citizen. This enables the parties to marry in the United States. American fiance(e)s should contact the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services office nearest their residence for further information or, if in Manila, at DHS window 44 in the Immigrant Visa Section (8:00am-11:00am) at the US Embassy.


Where can I find additional information?

Information about K-1("fiancé(e)”) or IR-1("spouse") visas is available from:

The U.S. Embassy's Immigrant Visa Page.
The U.S. State Department's National Visa Center in New Hampshire at (603) 334-0700.

Information about immigrant visa petitions is available from:

The website for the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services
The DHS office at the U.S. Embassy in Manila, Window 19 (open Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 11:00 am and 1:00pm to 3:00pm.); or by phone at (632) 301-2000, Ext. 2224; or
The nearest office of the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services in the United States; or
The U.S. State Department's National Visa Center in New Hampshire at (603) 334-0700.

Dude, everyone who gets married in the Philippines from another country has to get it.... to put it in perspective, I was born in the Philippines and migrated to the US and got married to my kabalen and I still had to get it... make sure you go to US Embassy really, really early to get the first person to get it. I did and I was first to get it and everyone followed suit and asked me all kinds of questions like I've done it before and it was my first time too...

Hope that helps...

Have fun there and take lots and lots of pictures with your fiancee and her families... it helps.

Just go really early...their cut-off time is between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Bring a copy of your U.S. divorce decree, your passport, and the fee. The certificate has to be presented to the municipal hall where you guys are planning to secure your marriage license.

I have no idea how long your visit will be, but ideally it should be the first document you get when you arrive...marriage announcements at city hall have to be posted for 10 business days (excluding public holidays) before they will grant you a marriage license.

Rules vary. My license wait was for 12 days including weekends and they wanted the marriage class done prior but ended up allowing us to do it later that first week under our promise to attend. I also needed a Cenomar and 4 official copies of my divorce decree and birth certificate. My advice is to have your fiancee check out what is actually required before you get there.

I am aware of these things but like I said before and the web site states it's no longer first come base, it's now by appointment. If would have not checked I would have wasted a day going their and not have an appointment and who knows how far in advance you need to make it if it does get filed up right away. I arrive on a Thursday night and I was planning going the next day. My fiancé paid for license all I have to have is to fill out the paper work and submit it and wait 10 days in Manila.

I check the Manila civil registry and I don't require a Cenomar only my divorce decree and passport and the legal capacity of marriage.

I was glad to visit the embassy's website before we went down there to get my certificate last month, otherwise it would've been a wasted trip. The appointment system seems to work pretty good, I was in and out in 2 hours. Of course now I'm getting the K-1 so its kinda irrelevant now.

They have some semi-private rooms for the meeting with the consul, but I could hear (I called him "Uncle Buck) one guy rattle off to the consul about his previous FOUR divorces...I wondered if his fiancee was looking for the exit door by the end of it! :blink:

Its really a painless process, just make sure your fiancee leaves the cell phone at home or in the hotel (USC can leave their phone at the security station inside) and have a lot of patience! :whistle:

Getting married in the Phils is nice. Bring extra cash to pay off the Fixxors and have a great time. Good luck!

Meanwhile, many prefer the K1 option and go to Vegas where you can get the marriage license on one sheet of paper and get married the same day.

How do we set an appointment to the U.S. consulate in Cebu for the affidavit? Thanks!

That is ridiculous... the US has nothing like a CENOMAR, so the PI requires us to pay $50 for a piece of paper saying we are free to marry? What a crock of you-know-what!! Just another way to make money off people in love. Hay naku!

I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man, and I will stop calling you a white man.  Together, we can make this all about the human race.

May & I are already married in the U.S. last year and want a church ceremony in the Philippines is 2012.
We have reported our marriage to the Philippine Consulate in Chicago.

I am hoping none of this will apply to us since it is more like renewing our vows.
