Hi abc1699

May I know if your husband is still here in the Philippines? Did he get married while he /was here in the Philippines? These are some of the important questions that have to be answered in order for us to fully understand your situation.

Bigamy is a private crime and only the offended spouse can institute an action against the offending spouse. In your case ma'am, is there really no way for you to come back for a few visits here in the Philippines?

Should you need more legal information about this matter, you may want to visit www.domingo-law.com.

Bigamy in the Philippines is a public offense if I'm not mistaken? Anybody who has knowledge of the facts can file a complaint.

Not entirely true! my friend was naturalised in the US then someone reported her to the autority that she was also married in Philippines but they were ignored by the Embassy as she is now an American citizen. And she has children, therefore the human rights helped her as her Philippines husband is just a drug pusher and he is in jail. Shocked

Cheetoz15, thank you for pointing out my mistake. Yes, bigamy is a public offense, and I stand corrected. Concubinage and adultery are the private offenses.

Ms abc1699, to correct my previous advise, you or anyone in your behalf, may file for a bigamy case against your husband. It just has to be proven that a)your marriage with him is legal and it has not been previously dissolved; b)your husband has contracted a subsequent marriage HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES, and it also has all the essential and formal requisites for marriage.

Kapag napatunayan po ito, maari na pong makasuhan ng bigamy ang asawa ninyo. Kung may mga kamag-anak kayo na willing magfile ng kasong ito para sa inyo, magagawa nila ito kahit wala kayo dito sa Pilipinas.

I hope I was able to rectify the previous advise that I have given.

attyjoyce - but does that person who will file it needs permission from the offended wife??

what if the offended wife is unwilling can that person still file it??

or anyone who has knowledge of it can just file it regardless of any close relation with the offended wife??

Hi Cheetoz15.

In public crimes, the offended party is the State. Hence, anyone may file the case. Of course, it is still a matter of evidence. All that has to be proven is that the elements of the crime exist.

Evidence is still a must...If you fail make sure you haven't committed any crime yourself, as it may bounch back to you... It is always better to avoid being nosey as it will not bring you any good and karma may hit you back!

Opo, pwedeng magfile ng kaso ang kapatid nyo at i-attach as evidence ang mga pictures sa pangalawang kasal. Kaya lang pinakamaganda at pinaka-importanteng ebidensya parin po sa kasong bigamy ang marriage certificate ng pangalawang kasal.

Hi lianscott

Nasa sayo kung anu gusto mo i-file. Kung tuluyan mo ng gustong hiwalayan ang husband mo, ang kailangang mong i-file ay annulment.

Pwede ka rin mag-file ng concubinage dahil may ibang kinakasamang babae ang iyong asawa.

Should you need more legal information, you may want to visit www.domingo-law.com.

Good day. Mayroon po akong hawak na papel from NSO na certification na may 2 kasal ang Husband ko.. Yng first marriage was April 1987 with other woman, at yung pong kasal namin ng April 1990.
If im not mistaken our marriage was null and void from the very beginning, am I right? And my husband is facing a serous offense.
Gusto ko po sanag ideclare yung marriage namin noong april 1990 na null and void. Kaya lang po..hindi ko alam kung paano mag start saan pupunta at anu ang mga dapat kong ihanda. At as i heard.. medyo magastos po daw ang magfile ng ganitong kaso.
Wala naman po akong planong ipakulong yunghusband ko gawa ng bigamy..at gusto ko lang po e ma declare na null and void yung kasal namin......na hindi ako gagsatos ng malaki..kasi ako po ang nag papalaki ng mga bata at nag papaaral..wala akong kakayahang gumastos ng malaking pera para dito....kaya lang po sa aking palagay e..karapatan kong maging malaya sa kasal na kung tutuusin e wala na naman pong halaga..kasi yung husband ko at yung first wife nya e nagsasama na po ulit..
Sana po ay matulungan nyo ako kung ano ang dapat kong gawin....
Salamat po.

you will need to retain a lawyer to assist you in filing a petition for declaration of nullity. cost will depend on the lawyer you retain. a similar case we are handling has a budget of 100k

Hi enelra1967,

Yes, you really need to file a petition for declaration of nullity and in order to do this you need to hire a lawyer. We are handling a similar case and we charge 60K (running bill) for acceptance fee.

raglem, in the case we handled, we filed both bigamy and annulment, but you can file separately or just one
