1 Sharia Divorce Stand on Fri Oct 28, 2016 3:55 pm


Arresto Menor
Hello. Thank you all for taking the time to read and for the advice in advance.

I was married to my ex husband last 2009 through the Catholic church. The marriage did not last a year. Early 2015 we both decided to go through Sharia Divorce as he wants to practice Islam and already has a a child with his new partner. We converted to Islam and our divorce went through. Had it registered at the civil registrar and they had canceled and annotated the marriage contract.

While the divorce was ongoing i was seeing someone. And when i was finally "free" he proposed and we got married civilly.

I just wanted to clarify the Philippine laws stand on this? Specially the PD 1083?

I asked the lawyer here if it is necessary for my to undergo annulment but he said there is nothing to annul as the certificate te of marriage with my ex was already cancelled.

Im really confused. Hope you can shed some light to this.

Yes mam, no need to file for an annulment. Your previous marriage is legally divorce. Both of you can contract a new marriage (as already did by both of you). PD1083 is a law that governs Muslim in the Philippines which is part of legal system of the country.

For the more legal process, procedures and assistance regarding PD1083:

Thank you
