It's been 9 years and 11 months since i arrived in USA for K1 Visa ( Fiance Visa) but after 6 months in US i went back home.

So here is my Story I hope you will not judge me.

It was August 29 when i landed in America with my Fiancee. We have 90 days to get married before my Visa Expired but the nice guy turns to a very difficult guy to make the story short he maltreated me. I left him and i live with my aunt in Maryland i decided to just go back in my Country but my aunt told me to just leave when my visa close to expire so i stay with my aunt. While living with my aunt i meet a new friend to make the story short this new friend turns into a lover and he don't want me to go back home and in a short period of time he married me because he don't want me to go back home. So we got married and he filed me to adjust my status but since he was not the original petitioner he can't adjust my status for permanent resident. The Immigration lawyer told us that He need to re petition me for Spouse Visa and I needed to go back home.So i went back home in my Home Country He petition me for Spouse Visa but it takes 5 years before i recieved a letter from USCIS but this time we already broke up. I want to make this story short This American Citizen we already broke up for i think 5 years now but he did not file a divorce.We talk months ago i ask him about the divorce but he told me he dont have a plan to get married again so he will not file the divorce. I was only 20 years old when we get married and now i am already turning 30 years old.

Since we already separate. I had a Filipino partner now we live together and we have 9 months old Baby.

I have a question to you guys...

. I was married in the USA but when i checked my Status here in my Country I am Still SINGLE. Can i get married here in Philippines?

Can i ask an advice here.

So what is it that you are asking? Do you want to know about divorce? Or do you want to know what will happen with your case?

As far as I know Bigamy is not legal in PI.

I think you are married and I think that you would not be able to marry now. Technically you are not the EX wife of a US citizen, as you never divorced...

Why don't you contact a lawyer and ask about your legal marital status? Of course disclose that you are still married to a US Citizen.. A lawyer should be able to give you that info?

 

Good luck!

OK. I see the edited post. The original did not have the last question.

 

@Happiness89,

 

You are still married. Married is married anywhere in the world. If are still married in the USA, then you are technically married in the Philippines. You will have to get a divorce.

Why would a married person need a Lawyer to tell them they are married?

Apparently TO is confused as she states that in her country her status is single. Having a lawyer tell you that your US marriage means that you are married everywhere might clear up any confusion.

So if, well when I die, there will be the majority of the world population who will never know, so I am really alive?

You are married, only PSA in the Philippines was never informed of your marriage - You did not file a Report of Marriage when you married your husband.    Philippines not being aware of your marriage doesn't make you less married.   And yes I understand that according to the Philippines you are not married ...   

 

It is sad that your USC husband doesn't want to file for divorce

Not sure why we are having this conversation within this thread?

 

I offered TO an idea that might ease her mind a little as she seemed confused, that's all.. You do not find any logic or need for my suggestion, but maybe TO will..

It would make it easier if your USC husband would file. Then I believe you could get married again because the Philippines would recognize the divorce granted in a foreign country by a None-Philippines citizen...I know what most Filipinos would do in your situation but we cannot advocate it here....


Not a newbie but lost my old info years ago) I have been through this process before --all the way through naturalization-- This site has always been a great help to me.

...  exactly  ;)  

 

If she could get to a country where she would be allowed to complete a divorce ... SHE could divorce him, and it would be recognized in the Philippines as well.
