Recommended Posts

I know this is gonna be my problem in the future. My real name(single) is jasmine masola obdamen, my husband name is john santos. When i married my husband and sent my AOS I use my husband last name and use my single middle name as my married middle name as well,i Know in the Philippines we must drop the(single middle name) masola and change into obdamen(single last name) and use the new last name which is santos(husband last name) but what happen is that my name become "jasmine masola santos" i didnt follow the Philippines name tradition..is this gonna be a problem? I plan to renew my passport and report my marriage when i get my greencard..is there anything i need to do to avoid any hassle in the future because of my name change? Is there anyone here had this problem too? Please advice. Thank you.

 

i dont remember if i ask this before but if i did i apologize.

No. It won't be a problem here in the USA as long as you start using your married name when you get married. 

 

Just make sure you do the ROM with the married name and you should have a issue either at the embassy.

Its what husband my said too but im worried when it comes into Philippines documents like we want to have a wedding ceremony in the Philippines maybe later this year..my husband always told me to stop worrying about Philippines law as im not living there anymore 😅 He is the one who decide to leave my middle name alone as what they do it here in the US i just agree with him as my middle name is also cuter than my last name 😆

 

Jasmine masola obdamen and john santos is not our real name btw(its for our privacy purposes) 

 

 

Thanks @Cyberfx1024

A  2nd ceremony in the Philippines would be a renewal of vows, not a marriage, so you should be fine

If your marriage abroad is considered valid in that country, which means it complies with the procedure and requirements prescribed by its laws, and it does not fall under the category of prohibited marriages in the Philippines, then your marriage is also valid and will be recognized in our country. Register the marriage abroad in any embassy or consulate in the US for evidence and marriage record purposes. Once registered at the PH embassy, embassy furnishes a copy to the Philippines Statistics Authority in the Philippines where you can get your marriage certificate.

 

The first marriage once valid and existing maintains its validity. You can make many renewal of vows if you want and you don’t need any requirements for it. The requisites of a valid marriage attaches to your marriage which happened abroad. It is just a matter of registering it at the PH embassy. Renewal of vows is nothing but a mere ceremony. You can never find any provision regarding renewal of vows in the Philippine family code or the Civil Code.
