I'm not 100 % sure, but as I have understood it, you need an ANULMENT to make it legal.
Or be widow/widower, but it isn't legal to murder to become that Smile

Well that never even crossed my mind. Annulment is the only way I guess. I might have to end this relationship.

My murder coment was just a joke Smile
but some become widow of other reasons too.
I BELIEVE an other option is IF the other is at unknown location, unknown if being alive several YEARS (7 ?) and by that become COUNTED as dead. although it isn't known if dead or alive.

If your live in partner is foreigner, I BELIEVE that can even be a DEPORTATION reason for him.
End or "put on hold" the new relation until the old marriage is solved.

I see. If I have understood corect. you BOTH make a crime living together, and for us foreigners we can become deported too.
It's an other question if someone bother to report it. Many Filipinos live together although they are married/separated to someone else, but we foreigners are more vulnerable. because of the deportation risk.

Hello. One of the effects of Legal Separation is to enable them to live separately from one another (See Art. 63 (1) of the Family Code). What Lunkan may be referring to is the possibility of you and the woman of being charged for adultery. While I am not 100% sure, i believe that the grant of legal separation equates to "permission" given by the other spouse to have intercourse with another. As for civil liability, I cannot really say. The situation you are having with the woman may be shocking to the morals of most Filipinos.

No.
But I have wonn rather many cases in my home country for myself and clients. even against the government.

Since two years I have been studying the Philippines including the laws, which can concern me settling and start business there Smile So I have studied mainly Philippine business, tax and property laws, but a litle family laws too.
So far no one has corected me corect* Smile except once I had read a VISA law, thought it was valid still, but it had been replaced recently.

*Some EXPATS have written I'm wrong about some things, but they mix up what's LEGAL, and what the Philippine justice system BOTHER about. Not being caught (yet) DON'T make it legal.. Laughing

If you had been married, then the SEX would have been a crime in the Philippines both by the man and the girl,
but by you aren't married they have "only" been immoral.

BUT the red marked is a crime. Try to get evidience as doctor report, photographs, witnesses...

Greetings! kindly provide me your expert legal opinion regarding the application of Article 148 of the Family Code or the Civil Code. I was (de facto) separated with my legal wife and live with a woman with the same situation like mine but later her husband died while we were living together. Now, we are planning to terminate our cohabitation, but the problem is that we have acquired real properties and personal properties like vehicles. How can we divide the acquired properties during the time that we were living together? Thank you to much for your immediate response.
More power to you!

Living together with an other when you are separated is seen as a crime in the Philippines,
so you better NEGOTIATE how you split your assets and "buy/sell" them between youself - or sell to other and split the money - as if you hadn't ever been living together.
If you want, you can use the law how married split assets as "inspiration" when you discus how to split things.

Greetings!

Need some legal advise. Me and my live-in partner wants to marry. However, he was married before under civil rites in 2004. They separated since 2005, and in 2014, his wife came to him and ask him to sign a mutual agreement stating that both of them are no longer interested with each other's affair and that they can pursue their own happiness even with a new partner in life. It was signed by both parties and with two witnesses. Please help me on what measures to take so we can be married.

Thanks!

They CAN'T do the red mark just by thenselves, because if they get other then they BREAK THE LAW in the Philippines. (Adultery/concubinage.)

There are different steps:
1/ Only decide what they find ok between THEMSELVES. ( =What they have done it seem if they haven't forwarded it to get step 2.)
2/ LEGAL separation. (=Separate ECONOMY and are no longer responcible if the other mess up, but they CAN'T still get other partner.
3/ END the marriage by annulment.
