    Philippine divorce and CENOMAR

    Looking for anyone with experience in our situation. My Philippine is divorced. Please don't bother telling me that there are no divorces in the Philippines... there are and she is. In any case, she presented her annotated marriage certificate and her divorce decree to the interviewer at the embassy in Manila. All went well but the interviewer said she must submit a CENOMAR and he sent her to the NSO. She applied for the CENOMAR and was told it would be sent to the embassy. The question is this, everything I read indicates the CENOMAR is only for single people or annulled marriages so how can a CENOMAR be issued to someone who is divorced? In all lists of documents required for the interview the lists includes a CENOMAR for single people and then lists the annotated marriage certificate and divorce decree for divorced people. So now our case in in a status of administrative hold pending receipt of a CENOMAR. Will the NSO issue a CENOMAR for a divorcee? She said she submitted her divorce decree to the NSO right after divorce a year ago so the NSO should certainly have the divorce recorded. Any ideas anyone? Has anyone processed a K1 successfully with a divorce in the Philippines rather than annulment?
  2. For those who are planning to apply or renew their Philippine passport, the DFA would accept online appointments only until June 30, 2018.
  3. Hello. Can anyone help me on this? I recently applied for NBI Clearance here in Abu Dhabi, UAE for my K1 interview requirements. Do I still need to authenticate it at the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in the Philippines and UAE Embassy in the Philippines? Or NBI Clearance alone is enough? Thank you so much in advance.
  4. My fiance had her K-1 interview at US Embassy, Tokyo but they denied due to 221(g), requesting additional paperwork. 2 of the things they are requesting are NBI, Police report. She submitted both for her current name (birth name) but it appears they want both for when she was married. I assume she will have to go to the Police Headquarter for the Prefecture she lived in while married in Japan to get another police report under her married name. (she was divorced in 2004). She went to from Japan to Philippines (she is Filipina) in 1990 and they stayed there for about a year so I take it she will and NBI Clearance for her married name. If I am correct how does she go about that? She cannot afford to travel back to the Philippines. They are also requesting Other Passports. She worked with a dance company from 1983-1990 and traveled back and forth to Japan. She got married in 1990 and submitted all her past passports from 1990 to the present. She did not keep her old passports from 1983-1990 and it was so long ago she has no idea what years they were issued. Thanks for any assistance or information you can give me.
