NSO Annotation for divorce in PH

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I would like to know if anybody have done this before. I was born in the Philippines, got married to an american here in the PH but I got divorced in the US. I was already a naturalized American citizen when I got divorced. ( I understand that I need to do an RTC trial for my marriage to get voided and it will take time for that so not an option right now)

So is it possible for someone in this case, to still get married in the PH. I read that they are now asking for  like a CEMAR  or CENOMAR, i'm not sure which.  So how do get your CEMAR to have an annotation that you got divorced? Do you just submit it to the NSO? Is there a process for that? Thanks so much!

The annotation of the divorce on the CEMAR is done after completing the court process.  Must have the divorce recognized before PSA (was NSO years back) will annotate the CEMAR

 

Are you now a dual citizen?

Thanks, but no, I'm not a dual citizen yet. So I still have to do the court before you can get a CEMAR annotated.

Does that mean, currently a naturalized US citizen cannot get married again in the Philippines  if you were married in the PH  before but got divorced in the US?

I have read/heard varied reports from USC that were married before and want to get married again in the Phils, the majority only needed to provide a copy of their divorce decree when applying for the marriage license.     < And that is why I asked if you were a dual citizen.

 

There has been a fair amount of activity around foreign divorces and recognition ... you may have to check with the local registry were you plan to apply for your marriage license.   

 

Last I heard from anyone is that providing a copy of the divorce decree was still accepted with foreigners.

Yes you still need a court order in order for PSA to put an annotation on your Marriage Certificate.

 

And after that, when you request for a CENOMAR the PSA will give you a CEMAR (which indicates the court rulings of your Annulment/Divorce).

 

I had my annulment done 2016.

How long did you process your Court Order to get the annotation?  But US Citizens didn't used to get those CEMAR, the only thing required for them is the Legal Capacity, did they really change it concretely now? or it only depends on which town a person chose to get married?

From release of the Court Order up to annotation from PSA took me about 2 months.

Thanks, that's good to know it's 2 months for you. Did you have to hire an atty? and did you have to appear in court? What's the process like?

The person is a US CItizen, so different game and different set of rules to play by

Yes, I am a US Citizen but I was born here in PH so hopefully it will be the same and won't be that difficult.

For the annullment process I hired a lawyer. But after i got the finality and court orders i did the annotation process by myself. My lawyer advised me as she said it would be faster if I was the one processing it.

 

It could be faster or slower for divorce docs.
