getting married in the Philippines

Hi.... I fouund a cheaper flight to CEBU but I can only be there for 15 days.

My question is.... when I file for the marriage licence, does the 10 day waiting period INCLUDE Sat.and Sun? Or is it 10 business days?

It's my understanding that the waiting period is only so they can post our request on a board there at the office so the public can view it for 10 days so if anyone wants to challenge it, that can.

Also.... I have never been married/divoriced. Do I still need a "never been married document" of some kind? If so what is it and where do I get it!

Thanks a lot!

Mike

Any foreigner who wishes to marry in the Philippines is required by the Philippine Government to obtain from his/her Embassy a "Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage" before filing an application for a marriage license.

Philippine law prescribes a ten-day waiting period from the filing of the application to the issuance of the marriage license. The license is valid for 120 days and may be used anywhere in the Philippines.

I'm sure she will be able to tell you what counts as 10 days:

Yes I know about that....thanks!

She is out of town on her moms small island and I want to purchase the tickets today.

So I would like to hear from someone who has actually gone through the process....

And I still don't know if I need some documentation that I have never divorced.

The 10-day waiting period are only business days, from what I can remember. And no, you don't need any kind of documentation to prove that you have never been married before or divorced, only the Legal Capacity to Marry to show that you are single and that you are capable of marrying your fiancee.
