JUDICIAL RECOGNITION OF FOREIGN DIVORCE

There is no divorce in the Philippines. In cases where a Filipino citizen contracts marriage with a foreigner, a divorce validly obtained thereafter in a foreign court by the foreigner spouse must be judicially recognized by a Philippine court before the Filipino spouse can remarry under Philippine laws.

The judicial recognition of said divorce shall be the basis for the annotation of the relevant civil registry documents - that would enable the Filipino spouse to re-marry or the female (Filipino) spouse to revert to her maiden name.
