Hi. I came across this forum because of desperately finding a solution for my marriage and immigration issue. I am 2 years separated with my husband but we have not yet filed any legal separation. I am working overseas and is it possible to file legal separation outside the Philippines? Hope someone can help me on this. Thanks in advance.

Yes, if you have grounds to file for legal separation, you can execute a Special Power of Attorney (in favor of your representative here in the Philippines, who could be a relative or even a lawyer), since you are abroad.

If you need legal assistance, you may email me on km@kgmlegal.ph

Hi,

The appropriate legal remedy in each situation depends on the grounds available to you. You will have to provide more information about your marriage to know whether or not you may file for legal separation, nullity of marriage, etc.

The petition will be filed in the place of your residence or in the place of residence of your husband, not just anywhere in the Philippines.

You may send a direct email to me on km@kgmlegal.ph

Regards,

Atty. Katrina

Hi,

Yes, you can file your petition for declaration of nullity even you are not physically present in the Philippines. You have to execute a special power of attorney (SPA) in favor of your representative/lawyer, but if you will testify in court, you have to be present during the scheduled hearing.

The case will run depending on the number of documents/witnesses you will present in court, whether or not your spouse will oppose your petition, and on the number of cases being handled by the court. Normally, it may take 2-3 years.

As for the fees, you may email km@kgmlegal.ph for quotation.

Regards,

Atty. Katrina

Not upon filing, but you will be notified of the scheduled hearing. You only need to testify 1-2 times.

Hello atty:Katrina
Please advice naman po,hiwalay na rin po ako sa asawa matagal na mahigit 10 years na po at sa mga taon po na nagdaan wala din po kaming komunikasyon ng ama ng anak ko hanggang nakita ko po sa NSO na nag-asawa na po sya ulit.Gusto ko pong malaman kung pwede po mag file ng annulment as non appearance po kasi yung isang kaibigan ko po ay nakapag file sya ng non appearance pero nung umuwi po ako ng pilipinas at nagtanong sa probinsya namin kung pwede ang non-appearance ang sabi hindi raw po pwede.Mahirap naman po kasing umuwi sa atin kung walang sapat na pera sa pagpapa annul.Anu po dapat gawin? Salamat po.
