Hi marcgrace,yes , it's one of the requirements if the foreigner applies for marriage license here in PI.. The USC can obtain that at USEM in manila or US consular office in cebu.. It is like a certificate as proof that they are free to marry.

thanks for the reply :)

yes i know that is one of the requirements, its just weird since i already got a CENOMAR here in the philippines, stating that i have never been married or married. Yet the civil registrar said i still need to get the "legal capacity to marry" considering im a dual citizen (US/Filpino).

does anyone know if i need to bring any id's or what not in getting the legal capacity to marry?

i cant bring my US passport the moment since its still under renewal process :(

is there any way i can go even without my US Passport to get the legal capacity to marry!

THanks guys for the help:)

My husband and I got married last July 17, 2012 here in the Philippines. The USC, or your husband-to-be, just need to bring his passport and one valid ID. If divorced or widowed, he got to have a supporting documents that the marriage has been dissolved. His presence, of course is required. Tell him to bring his birth certificate too. Then you have to set a schedule online on the US embassy website for an appointment to get the certificate of legal capacity to marry.

Congrats, best wishes, and God bless!!

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, ' for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

im the petitioner yet my US passport is still in the renewal process. So i guess i have to wait for it then? or can i just use my Filipino passport since im dual? or do they need to see your US passport in order for them to give you the capacity to marry?

anyways does the fiance have to go to the embassy with you? coz from what i read on the website, u can just go there alone and get it yourself..

anyways thank u so much for the reply :)

Godbless.

U.S. citizens must leave and enter the U.S.A with a U.S. passport.

Plus I would bet the embassy would want proof of U.S citizenship for them to issue the legal capacity to marry you are seeking. Only the USC needs to go to the embassy to get the legal capacity to marry.
