Anything is possible here with money. I was quoted 200,000p to get my niece annulled from her husband and he does not want the divorce. Imagine it is easier if he does want it.

i dont need to have that because i am disabled all i need is adequate maintainance of £114 per week its different for me thankfully. because otherwise there would be no way at all. its bloody ridiculous though that you have to have that much! i mean look at people on job seekers or universal credit they get less than 10 thousand a year! you should have to have less money they should lower it to atleast 15,000 or maybe even less!

Don't be ridiculous ... people who want to sponsor other folks into the UK should at least be able to support them, without being able to apply for benefits. Hence the 18,600 GBP minimum.

I was going to comment on this, but it has been through the washing machine many time on all forums, but I am bemused that the OP is looking at marrying a 2nd time, you would have though once was enough here!!!

Very difficult to make a silk purse out of a sows ear, perhaps like "being caught between a rock and hard place", sometimes there are no easy answers and definitely will cost,,,,,,, sad as it is.

Cheers, Steve.

I'm frankly dumbfounded. With all the wonderful Available SINGLE and Never Married Filipinas out there, my question falls back to a simple one? ... What are you thinking and Why are you wasting your time and potentially your $$$$ to even do this? Makes no sense. Seems to me with her still married and all the entanglements and traps that poses, you are simply asking for trouble with no need to even do so. My only suggestion is Move On!

"In the case of Marelyn Tanedo Manalo, the court noted Article 26 (2) of the Family Code which provides that "where a marriage between a Filipino citizen and a foreigner is validly celebrated and a divorce is thereafter validly obtained abroad by the alien spouse capacitating him or her to remarry, the Filipino spouse shall likewise have the capacity to remarry under Philippine law."


https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/04/24/...ce-valid-in-ph

This has since been extended to cases where the Philippine spouse initiates the divorce abroad.

https://lawyerphilippines.org/2017/0...pines-process/

However there is still no divorce for two locals who marry. There are only two ways a local can remarry, one if is the first spouse is dead the other is if the marriage is annulled. Lots of discussions here on how long and expensive and unsure that process can be locally.

Not sure about a UK divorce. I know in my province of Manitoba Canada that at least one spouse has to be a provincial resident for a year to petition for divorce, the other spouse does not need to live in the province. Two Philippians divorcing would not be recognized here opening the possibility of a bigamy charge if you remarried and she ever returned to the Philippines.

One option would be to have her acquire UK citizenship. Then she would be the foreign spouse filling for divorce and that would be recognized here. She would also be renouncing her Philippine citizenship on acquiring UK citizenship.

She could reclaim it but that might impact the recognition of the UK divorce locally. It could very likely become a landmark case in local family law. The outcome would depend in large part on how liberal or conservative the judge is in divorce issues.

If you go this route, I'd suggest that she never reclaim her Philippine citizenship. If you come back here to live then she would come on one of the options open to UK citizens to live here long term. Any children would not have Philippine citizenship unless she reclaims hers prior to the birth..

I'd also suggest getting some professional legal advice and not just proceeding on the posts of random strangers on the internet.
Terrible idea. The lawyers here, surprise, are corrupt. They will drag the simplest case on for YEARS, just so you keep paying them. And they will rip you off and scam you as well. My wife's cousin had an attorney help her get a passport to go abroad. Took over 10 years! Just for a passport. You can get one in a few hours on your own.

Agreed. I would say Filipino women are a dime a dozen, but that would be putting too high a value on them. There are virtually an unlimited supply of women and girls here, if one were looking. Never understood why men go after 35 year old, worn out prostitutes with 8 kids. You could have young single girls anywhere any time.
