I just recently found out from my Filipina separated wife that our marriage had been annulled some time ago. When I finally got the court documents and then did research I found that the judge was disbarred in 2012. The court documents (of which I only have a copy) show a certificate of finality in 2010. The judge was Cader Indar Al Haj, the presiding judge of the Cotabato City Regional Trial Court (RTC) branch 14 and acting Presiding Judge of Shariff Aguak, Maguindanao RTC branch 15. There are many sources such as news websites to show the reports of the disbarring.
How can I find out if my marriage annulment is still valid? The marriage certificate I got from NSO recently does not have an annotation showing the marriage was annulled. The CENOMAR only says it was annulled but gives no details and has a spelling mistake in my ex's name. The marriage certificate that my ex sent me with the court documents does indeed show the annotation with the court details of annulment. This is all confusing and raises doubts. I would rather be single now than have to start a divorce process to be sure before I can marry again. I am a foreigner not living in the Philippines so I can't drop by the courthouse at Cotabato City to personally ask for proof.
Thanks for your time.
