Reclusion Perpetua
you can have your marriage annulled based on psychological incapacity which basically means that one or both are unable to perform the marital obligations (to support each other financially and emotionally)

you have to consult your lawyer to do this. file the petition in the family court where you reside here in the philippines. if you are unable to stay in the philippines until the petition is heard and completed, you can just be here for the collusion hearing, pre-trial and witness' testimony. some courts allow advance testimony too.

another (and perhaps faster option) is for you to check the annulment of marriage procedure in dubai. im not so familiar with it but it is easier to process it there. be careful though. it depends really on your stay status there.
