I just wanted to ask if the below grounds can be used for my case? My story is this. I do have a boyfriend but sad to say nakabuntis po sya nung magkalayo kami. My ex-boyfriend who is a US citizen told me that he can help me to go to USA, he said we will get married and if things work out fine we will continue living together and if not we will just file an annulment. He told me to go back to Philippines as he will also go on vacation in Philippines. During that time I am also abroad working. So we got married in 2003, during that time he was only 24 and I was 25. We got married in Balagtas, Bulacan while during that time we are both living in another part of Bulacan. The reason why we had our marriage solemnized there was, the Mayor of that town is their family friend. I don’t even remember getting CENOMAR before the marriage. The person stated in our marriage contract who gave consent was his father, but during the time of marriage both of his parents was in USA. It was only his 1st cousin and cousins husband was present from his relatives side. And my mom and 1 colleague and 2 people working in the Municipality was there.
Now he is in USA and got married there and has 1 child. It’s been more than 7 years and since then we don’t have any communication. I just found out from our common friend that he got married there and I’ve seen the pictures. I myself has a live-in partner and also has kids.
I am still using his surname as during that time he told me to amend my passport. All I want now is to get out from that marriage, but HOW? Is the below grounds stated can be one point so I can apply for annulment or legal separation or anything so I get out from this.
I really need your help and advice.
And here are the void marriages:
5) Those contracted through mistake of one contracting party as to the identity of the other; and
Grounds for Judicial Separation of Property:
(6) That at the time of the petition, the spouses have been separated in fact for at least one year and reconciliation is highly impro
