So my fiance and i have applied for the K-1 Fiance visa. I was reading online about what we should do after I get the NOA1 and one of the things it stated was to get a CENOMAR since neither my fiance nor me has ever been married. its a certificate showing youve never been married. Is this really required? If so, does only he need to get one or both of us? And how would he or me or us be able to obtain them? Btw he lives in England.

The "CENOMAR" is country-specific for Philippines only.

I got married with US citizen, I am from Ukraine (East Europe).

Our experience we did not attach any Cenomar to our further docs package. Even more I hear this term for the 1st time in my life.

There is no such a requirements in the list of docs. May be it refers only to some specific countries....i would check more detailed.

Wish you all the best on your not easy but happy life journey together.....just be patient with all papers and procedures you face to...

Disagree. There may be more K1s from other countries that have the same misconception and need to read this as a general K1 clarification. If this UK person had known it was PhilippInes specific, she wouldn't have needed to post the question.

A CENOMAR (= CErtificate NO MARriage) is a Philippine Government form so unless that person is a Philippine citizen THERE IS NO SUCH THING.

Is your fiancée an American and you want to immigrate to USA?

Your nationality is Filipino?

If you answer yes to both of the questions then you are in the right place and we can help. If he is British and your immigrating to England then I suggest you visit the UK blog and ask this question and any others you have about the process. UK blog is located here http://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/99-united-kingdom/

As for moving it to the Philippines forum:

1) OP is from the UK http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/profile.php?id=160750

2) OP is NOT a Filipina in the UK http://www.visajourney.com/timeline/profile.php?id=160750

3) UK does not require a Philippines government form

There is an equivalent document to a CENOMAR in some jurisdictions which is referred to as a certificate of no impediment to marriage. These documents are required prior to marriage to prove the parties are free to marry and that there are no objections to the proposed marriage. I am not sure if it is required at all for K1 but I am just noting that there are country specific versions of the Philippine's Cenomar (ex. Nulla Ostas in Italy). Hope that helps.

Sein oder Nichtsein, das ist heir die Frage.
