1 Proxy Marriage on Sat Jan 07, 2017 1:07 am

Greetings! I need a legal advice. My boyfriend (OFW) left me pregnant and we're both very happy about it. We're both 22 years old. Now, we want to get married (civil marriage) without his appearance as soon as possible (so it's not really a proxy marriage). Is it possible? If yes, what are the requirements? I already processed our papers such as cenomar, birth certificate, etc. He even wrote a letter of intent to marry me without his appearance (he scanned it with his signature).

Plus, as far as I know.. my baby can't be named after him because he wouldn't be here by the time I give birth to our baby. I hope I can get a legal answer. Thanks! If possible, please send me an e-mail: mysteriousanonymousunknown @ yahoo . com

I don't know anything about marrying not being there. Have you asked if anyone is prepared to do it with him "in place" through for instance Skype so everyone can see he agree?

I suppouse NO chance with a SCANED document, because that's NOT an original, but PERHAPS it can be approved to SEND the original by for instance Fedex.

..
The name at the child iis possible to make corect even without marriage first, although it's not automatic as when being married, so some complicated.

I see, but regardless the intent to marry written by my boyfriend. Because well, to be honest.. it wasn't even a requirement. I actually have a friend who has another friend who works in RTC. I just, you know, wants to confirm this to somebody else. Because the process is not yet done. Anyway, as of now, we're waiting for the marriage contract to be delivered to my boyfriend then they said that he just needs to sign it and send the marriage contract back here in the Philippines. Thoughts/ideas/legal response to this? Thanks for your response by the way!

FYI

The formal requisites of marriage are:

(1) Authority of the solemnizing officer;

(2) A valid marriage license except in the cases provided for in Chapter 2 of this Title; and

(3) A marriage ceremony which takes place with the appearance of the contracting parties before the solemnizing officer and their personal declaration that they take each other as husband and wife in the presence of not less than two witnesses of legal age

The Family Code further stated that:

“Art. 4. The absence of any of the essential or formal requisites shall render the marriage void ab initio, except as stated in Article 35 (2).
