Annulment processing suspended

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, all,

I have a question regarding annulments in the Phils. My girl says her case has been suspended, along with (supposedly) countless others, by the Solicitor General, who has been extremely vocal in her opposition to the existence of annulments during her tenure. The SG's reason for the suspension is suspected collusion, as well as the SG's assertion that "families are the foundation of society in Philippines". That last bit makes no sense, or is pure political speak, because there is NO FAMILY where there are no children in the marriage. That is merely a married couple, NOT a family. So, with her case involving no children, the SG has no logical foundation to stop processing the case if her claim of protecting families as the nation's foundation is true.

Her case is uncontested by the (hopefully soon to be ex-) husband.

Does anyone else have a similar experience to relate? Or... is this a pure storybook tale I have been told? I tried searching newspaper articles in Philippines for any stories related to annulments having been stopped processing, but was unable to get any hits on Google. Her last involvment in the case actively has been over a year and a half ago, and that was only to verify she does indeed have an annulment suit pending by signing a document intended to go to either the fiscal or the SG, not sure which.

Nothing makes sense in the Phillipines

I see you have figured out the Philippines culture......

@Darnell - yes, 3.5 yrs ago, not all the money has been paid, with the last little bit to be paid upon completion of the case, but the lawyer asked $2500.

@VOL - If you have evidence that you can point to that supports your call, present it. Otherwise, you know what they say about opinions. <_<

@Darnell I am not sure I understand what you are talking about as far as the calendar. In any case, I have had no interaction with the lawyer at all. She doesn't know of my existence. I was told if the lawyer knows an "American" is involved, the price she wants will get higher. So, rechecking anything with her (the lawyer) is out of the question.

You are the first person to mention this "Suspension" and we get people asking about annulments in Philippines quite a bit

I googled a little bit and couldn't find anything either

So I did do some research and couldn't find anything on suspensions on the annulment process, Thus my answer.........

@Darnell - Still no idea what she's supposed to be checking. :huh2: If the SG is the one who has suspended the process, there's nothing scheduled to check on, at least until the SG has decided to either resume processing or to file collusion charges which would then, perhaps, void the annulment case entirely, depending on the outcome of the collusion case.

the attorney knows the calendar, and can request an entry on the calendar. i am asking you to check in with what's what on the calendar, and the entry on the calendar.

calendar = docket, in some places.

Price for her services should already been negotiated. It sounds as if your fiancé wants to keep you in the dark on the whole process.

If you are the one paying for the process I would be heavily involved and dealing with the lawyer and wanting a case update.

That's about the going rate for an annulment if not more. But as Vol stated before he tried to look and has found nothing. I have tried to look about suspension of annulments and I have found nothing. So according to what I have found or lack there of something isn't right here at all. Also 3.5 years is a pretty long time for an annulment, usually it's about 1-2 years. So I am saying that either your fiancee is being fleeced by the attorney (which does happens in the Philippines) or your gf is not telling you something.
