Annulment

Hello guys, I am petitioning my fiance (K1 visa) I was married before in the Philippines back in 2005 and I filed for divorce in 2008 here in Chicago.

Do still need my marriage to get annulled even though I'm divorce here in the US? I'm asking this because I don't want my fiance to get denied if her interview comes. And will my fiance need a cenomar?

Hi Rengi. I posted a similar question a few weeks back, and i got a definite no from the community; you dont need to get a local annulment first to petition your fiancee. Just make sure that you include your divorce papers in your I-129F package. Your fiancee has to get a CENOMAR for her interview proper. Both the divorce papers and CENOMAR stand as proofs that you are both legally free to marry.

Best of luck!

I am assuming your wedding took place in the Philippines and then you both lived in the US and are now divorced...correct? If that is the case, then you are legally free to marry. Make sure you send her a certified true copy of your divorce papers and yes, she will need a CENOMAR. Good luck!

A gray area exists when you are going to remarry another Filipino in the Philippines in which case you may need to have your divorce recognized in the Philippines first. Another gray area exists in the case of a dual citizen of the Philippines.

Start on Art 1 of the Family Code of the Philippines and work your way down, around Art 45 should give you a good idea of the process.

Although we got approved for I-129F,the only thing I was worrying about that they may ask my fiance about my annulment in her interview for K1 Visa. We have all the documents, a certified copy of my divorce certificate except my annulment certificate and her cenomar. We're suppose to get married in Canada (my fiance has a working visa in Canada) and file for I-130 but I don't have any patience because we have a son (a US citizen) and I want to get them here asap. She was suppose to do her interview in Montreal, Canada but we decided to transfer our case in Manila because it takes forever to get her case done in Montreal. I didn't call the Manila embassy for a file transfer yet, because there's so many questions going around my mind. :bonk:

I really appreciate for your reply

oh the word annulment really sucks. i have been there..done this and that..there are 2 things a filipino be remarry..#1--annulment(if you still have contact and know his/her whereabout) #2 --presumptive death (hehe on the family code it says..within 4 consecutive yrs of not having contact from the exhusband or exwife..a person will be presumed dead :):) )but of course you need have to undergo a legal process..

annulment is very expensive while the pressumtive death is only half of the price of the annulment thing.

good luck to you both.hope you can find a good lawyer.
