1 Twice kinasal, valid po ba? on Tue Apr 17, 2012 10:08 am

Hi Attorney
..Gusto ko po magtanong in behalf of a friend.
She was married for 9 yrs. now. Apparently naghiwalay sila ng mister nya year 2007pero hindi annulled. Nasa abroad yung asawa nya at nagkaGF na. Tapos nasa kanya ang anak nya. Sagot ng mister nya ang schooling ng bata. Nagpapadala naman yung asawa nya para sa bata pero maliit lang. Kulang para sa needs ng baby nila. Wala namang work yung friend ko kasi wala din mag-aalaga sa anak nya kaya di sya makapagwork. Tapos this year nalaman na lang nya na nagpakasal na yung lalaki sa gf nya sa Amerika. Legal po ba ang marriage nila dun? Kahit kasal naman sya dito sa Pilipinas? Pwede po bang magdemand para sa baby nya? Di naman nya wish na magkabalikan sila dahil matagal na syang over doon. Ang inaalala lang nya yung rights ng anak nya na di nabibigay ng dati nyang asawa. I'm hoping for your reply. Thanks.

We can speculate that the husband was abgle to get a decree of divorce there in the states.

nevetheless under Philippines law, the marriage between your friend and her husband still subsit notwithstanding the foreign divorce. in fact that marriage in the USA is considered by Phil Law as bigamous and therefore null and void.

Yes your friend can demand support from the husband.support in this sense is the support given to the spouse(your friend) for her own use since being married, the husband is obliged under the law, to give support to his wife.

Of course, the child will always be entitled to support regardless of the circumstances/status of the marital relationship between your friend and her husband. The law obliges the parent to give support to his/her child until the said chid reaches the age of majority.

ano pong hakbang ang pwedeng gawin ng friend ko?
Afraid din po sya dahil baka tanggalin ang maliit na support sa bata kapag nagdemanda sya.

May nakapagsabi din nga po pala sa friend ko na kapag Single ang lahat ng papers na gamit sa US ..pwede daw po talaga sila ikasal at legal daw po iyon sa US. Tama po ba sila?

Im not so familiar with family laws in the US..which by the way varies from one state to another.we have more than 50 american states which have their own versions of family law. but based on first hand info, the usual practice of married pinoys in US is to get divorce in the US and once granted this pinoy will contract a second marriage, usually with an american citizenship, to hasten this pinoy's petition for us citizenship.

Your friend should hire a lawyer so that she will be adviced properly on what kind of legal action she should take to solve her problem.

Good luck and God Bless
