My ex-wife came to the Philippines after I arrived. She went to the US Embassy and tried to get me deported. The US Embassy would not help her. She went to the Bureau of Immigration, trying to get me deported. The BI not told her that there was nothing that they could do, they also extended my visa. My ex-wife then went to the NBI. She has a paper from a law firm which states that I have no divorce records. But the letter from the law firm is not certified or notarized, only a letterhead.
My problem is that I did not bring my divorce records with me. The original intent was to meet my fiancee for the first time and see where it lead. In addition, I knew that she needed to get annulled and this would take 6 - 9 months.
How can the NBI check for my divorce status and make this go away?
The NBI said that I should not leave the country while they negotiate with my ex-wife. My problem is that I cannot get my divorce records as they are in a safety deposit box in the US.
My ex-wife was here for three weeks and on the next to last day, she filed the complaint with the NBI and left the country.
If I cannot leave the country, how do I defend myself? To request certified copies of a divorce record, you must go the courthouse, present ID, pay a fee, and then wait for at least 6 months for them to send you a certified copy.
What I would like to do, is to get the case moved to the US and fight it there. Is this possible?
And since the NBI told me that I should not leave the country (they did not take my passport), I am afraid if I leave, it will make me look guilty, later I cannot return to the Philippines, and my fiancee will be left to defend herself at all costs.
If my ex-wife cannot complain against my fiancee and only me, if I leave the Philippines, what happens to the charges/complaint?
My ex is referring against me.
One last thing, how can she, an American citizen (She was born in Peru and became a naturalized citizen) file a complaint against me here if I am a US Citizen? We are both foreigners here.
My fiancee and I live in the same house with her 11 year old son. I sleep in one bedroom and my fiancee sleeps with her son in the other bedroom. We have not been intimate as we are very religious and are waiting until she is annulled and we are married. So there has NOT been sexual intercourse.
Thank you so much in advance for your advice. I have read many responses and you are always right on target!!!
