I'm assuming you're referring to getting married in the Philippines?

As you are a citizen of the Philippines, you will have to live under Philippines laws there. This means you're going to need a copy of your CENOMAR, or annotated CEMAR showing the termination of any previous marriages.

OK 6 months in the Philippines, and I'm not sure how long you lived there before, but you must know by now how the Philippines can be with demands of bribes. Legally all you need is the CENOMAR. But I would not tell the local office where you apply for the marriage license that you're a USC also. You know how corruption is, and suddenly you could get the local Kano fee and run around until you pay it. The Affidavit of Legal Capacity to Marry is for foreigners who cannot get a CENOMAR, because the USA has no central marriage database like the CFO has there. I'm not sure of your age, but may also need the parental permission or advice. At least you won't have to go through the CFO when you're ready to leave.
