You did not provide a CENOMAR/COM during the interview?    Did you provide a copy of your divorce decree during the interview?

 

 CERTIFICATE OF NO MARRIAGE (if applicable). Applicants who are single and have never been married (18 years and older) are required to obtain a CENOMAR from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). The request for a CENOMAR is a standard measure adopted in Manila to ensure that a visa applicant does not have any concealed, unterminated prior marriage to anyone, which would eliminate his / her claim to the single status of the visa category sought. To request a CENOMAR be directly submitted to the US Embassy (recommended), you may do so here: https://www.ecensus.com.ph/Secure/Terms.aspx

 

https://ph.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/fiancee-visa/the-interview/   (when having been married before and you request a CENOMAR from PSA they will issue the COM instead)

yes i provided a divorce decree

..but they required me to get Certificate of no marriage. without my knowledge it must be recognize first in Court. to get annotated COM. 

 

the process of getting an annotated certificate of no marriage is to Submited the required documents such us finality, certificate and certified documents... to PSA manila.

my concern is... is it possible for me to bring all required documents in PSA manila to speed up the annotation of my marrige certificte.. than mailing if from my local civil registry.

Did the CO during the interview tell you that the COM had to be annotated?   

 

I don't know that you can bring everything to PSA without first starting the process at the LCR

Hiya! Apologies for jumping on here but I’m now feeling anxious just by reading the thread. 

I’m also divorced. I have my Foreign Divorce Decree on hand and we decided to push through with filing for a K1 visa thinking USEM Manila will accept it just fine along with a COM that doesn’t say annotated. 

Just a brief info about my situation. I came back to the Phil in 2017 to have my foreign divorce recognized. With that in mind I wasn’t expecting the process to be extremely lengthy considering it isn’t annulment but a Recognition of Foreign Divorce. Here we are, 2020 and it isn’t finished yet. I am waiting to hear from the Judge for the finality & documents to bring it to Civil Registrar General then to my Local Civil Registrar.

As for my K1 visa we r now waiting for our Case# from NVC to book for medical & interview. 

Extremely worried now that they will ask me to go back and wait for this to be annotated before granting me a visa? @Hank_ @GreenbaumUr thoughts are highly appreciated 😞

Hi. Have u filed for a Recognition of Foreign Divorce to the court? How did it go? The law now requires us to get the final decision from the judge take it to Civil Registrar General as they now take note of all Foreign Divorce Recognized, from there u then take it to ur Local Civil Registrar before they give u a COM that says Divorced. As far as I know this is going to take sometime as mine is taking over 2yrs not to mention u have to attend 2-3 court hearings that r likely scheduled months apart. Hence, the process is lengthy just like annulment.

 

What exactly did the CO asked u during ur interview? They dnt accept Foreign Decree unless recognized by Phil Law? Sorry for asking too many questions.

This is a new issue from the embassy, not sure if it is now policy, as the embassy checklist only states they want to a copy of the divorce decree, or if there is a new, overly zealous CO that is over-thinking things.   

 

The recognition of divorce is only necessary IF marrying in the Philippines, to marry anywhere else on the planet only the divorce decree would be needed.

 

I wish there was a way of addressing this with the embassy because no where in the embassy checklist does it list this "new requirement".

 

Very frustrating to say the least
