Hi!
Just want to inquire about the case of my bf. I had his cenomar and it is said the he was married pero tinanong ko po sya regarding dun sabi nya hindi natuloy and he was only 21 at that time. Ano po kayang dapat naming gawin para malaman kung totoo un. Sabi nya kasi sa cityhall lng un at may kakilala ung asawa nya dun so baka naforge ung pirma nya? kung napatunayan ba na na-forge nga ung signature ano ang dapat naming gawin? ano ang dapat naming i-file for grounds of annulment.

regardless of whether his explanation is true or not, there exists a marriage certificate. if you get married, both of you may be liable for bigamy.

the first marriage has to be declared void first.

First of all, I want to thank you for providing us tons information and legal advise for free. mabuhay po kayo.

I have 2 sets of questions:

1st question po:
Atty, nag pakasal po kmi civil wedding last January 1999, birthday ko po is August 1981, technically I was 17 y/o back then. ask ko lang po kung valid yung kasal namin, even with parental concent?

2nd question:
Just incase na valid yung marriage namin, since 2003 - till now, wala na kmi communication nung "wife" ko, and after almost 8 years na walang contact and communication, pwde po bang maging grounds yun para maging null and void yung marriage namin?

Thank you po, and hope to hear from you very soon.

being 17 at the time of the marriage means you had no legal capacity and the marriage can be declared void by the court. lack of communication is not a ground.

Thank you for your immediate response.
AttyLLL, follow-up question lang po.

Since hindi po valid yung marriage namin, does it mean na pwede na po ako magpakasal?

kailangan ko parin i- verify from Natioanl Census kung meron akong marriage contract, what if kung meron (I Hope there is none), do I need to file a case in court or pwede settlement agreement nalang.

Thank you po, AttyLLL. More power and God bless.

note what i said, it can be declared void by the court. it means you have to file a petition for declaration for nullity of marriage.

Hi again, I have a question from a friend here, she wants to know, if it is okay to go ahead and remarry without the tedious task and costs of annulment kasi 30 years na sila hiwalay ng ex nya, at gusto nya mapakasal uli.
The separated thirty years ago amicably and up to now are very good friends. Is it necessary pa raw po ba to get annulment. Pls advise...

whether 30 days or 30 years separated, that does not dissolve the marriage.

Art. 14. In case either or both of the contracting parties, not having been emancipated by a previous marriage, are between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one, they shall, in addition to the requirements of the preceding articles, exhibit to the local civil registrar, the consent to their marriage of their father, mother, surviving parent or guardian, or persons having legal charge of them, in the order mentioned. Such consent shall be manifested in writing by the interested party, who personally appears before the proper local civil registrar, or in the form of an affidavit made in the presence of two witnesses and attested before any official authorized by law to administer oaths. The personal manifestation shall be recorded in both applications for marriage license, and the affidavit, if one is executed instead, shall be attached to said applications. (61a)
CAN YOU PLEASE FURTHER EXPLAIN WHAT THIS MEANS? THANK YOU PO...

you need written parental consent to get married if you're 18-21.

Thank you... What if the marrige was contracted anyway as in the case of my fiancé who was able to marry her 18 year old girlfriend then without written consent from parents 30 years ago. What can he do to nullify that since they are both had been willing to do so. Besides, his ex wife got married again about 10 years ago thinking that their marriage was void. However, it only came up last year that their marriage ten years ago are in the records of NSO.. The strange part is, no record of the same marriage at the civil registrar where the marriage took place. They are both at a loss. Of course me too, as it affects our application for marriage also. Please help us with some advise ASAP. We are in distress. Thanks po.

i believe that the marriage is valid, since the presumption is in favor of marriage. since the ex wife had another marriage without the marriage dissolved,it is bigamy. if you want to have the marriage nullified,try the ground of psychological incapacity, the only problem is that it cost a lot since it will hire psychiatrists and different test and hearings to prove pi.

hope it helps

sultana, don't get married. with the existence of that marriage certificate, you will make yourself vulnerable to a charge of bigamy which can be initiated by anyone who knows about it.

the remedy is to see if there is a valid ground to have the marriage declared null. no parental consent can be used as a ground only if they did not live together after she turned 21 and only until she is 26 years old.

They did not live together as husband an wife after breaking up shortly after "marriage". Both of them attests that they had been seeing each other on off for several years until she got pregnant and finally separated when their baby was two months old. She took off to live in america with their two and half month old baby boy. She was 25. Does the marriage being void apply?
Thank you for your swift advice. God bless you.

Hello!
Gusto ko lang pong mag.inquire about sa case ng friend ko. Ayaw niya pong magpakasal kaso pinilit siya ng parents niya. Ang ginawa niya is iniba niya ang spelling ng name niya, birthday at signature niya.
Ask lang po if yong kasal niya is void dahil sa ginawa niya???

to my mind, no. she is still the same person who was married. incorrect spelling, signature and and birth date are all not valid grounds to annul a marriage.

mikaelavenice,

I think you have to know your boyfriend well. no matter what his explanation is still he is married. Been into this situation and it is really hard. make necessary verification from the NSO.

Hope this helps

atty, my husband was previously married, and her wife got married again first when they broke-up due to some personal reasons. My question is, can my husband file for annulment even if he works abroad? He is a seaman, and he cant stay longer for vacation, maximum stay is 3months. They got married in june 2002,civil wedding by a judge , 3months after they ended their relationship,and the wife got married by another man in 2003. We met in 2005 and got married in 2006 civil wedding by a mayor. We wanted to get marry in a church, but when i get hold of his cenomar, it was his first wife that was registered in the NSO, what should we do, what could be the possible ground for annulment atty? We already have 2 children, and I beleive that his previous wife, also now has children on her new husband.

marchell, it is allowed to file a petition even if your husband is abroad. his testimony can be scheduled or taken by deposition while he is here.

it doesn't matter if his legal wife got remarried first. that does not affect the validity of the first marriage. it just means the subsequent marriages, including yours, are void.
