I hope you can enlighten me with my problem.
My boyfriend who was 24 and i was 20 years of age back in 1999, got "married" in the manila city hall. ( hustled by some fixers to get easy marriage by paying 800 pesos.) His mother wanted us to be married if we plan to live together, i guess at that time i thought it was romantic so i grabbed the bait. I'm taking full responsibility of what happened to me back then.
There was no marriage liscence, we forged the people who witnessed, noone was there, there was no wedding ring,no ceremony. I remembered from this so called councilor that he will have it registered in General Trias Cavite.
After a year of being together, we broke up. No children in that marriage. We just drifted apart and we don't bother getting in touch anymore. Haven't heard from each other ever since that day i left the house.
Presently,i'm applying for a fiancee visa to the US and a CENOMAR is one of the requirements. I still have yet to see my CENOMAR, i just have the jitters,i just ordered it and i will receive it on the 31st of this month.
Attorney LL, how long is the process for a marriage to be void? if i have all the evidences at hand, i believe mine has to be void somehow. I have no contact with this guy. Nothing. He probably is married right now.
If i know a Judge at the Manila Trial Court ( the same place where we have that so called marriage thing), can she help me with this case? Can she expedite the whole thing?
I have read your previous posts on the grounds on having the marriage void, it had been very helpful. Thank for posting them.
