Our marriage took place in the USA and we would like to get a legal seperation in the USA then file that legal seperation in the Philippines. We were not married in the Philippines, though the NSO has recorded the USA marriage. We are both now living in the Philippines.
Will the Philippine courts recognize the terms of the foriegn legal seperation just as they do in a divorce?
After the legal seperation will we then able to move on with our lives finacially independently in the Philippines? (assets, home, etc)
