My question is whether I need to file for recognition or not. I think the recognition process is for Pilipinos only, but I am not sure.
I am looking for another foreigner who was married to a Pilipina in the Philippines, divorced abroad, then re married in the Philippines.
If your marriage is legally disolved in the US and never registered in the Philippines you are fine, they have no insight into your wedding and your can prove your divorce is valid based on your US divorce decree and the ability to get a CENOMAR from PSO (there is no record in the Philippines of your marriage, a search would return a marital status of single or no knowledge of you at all)

Yes, this would be the best case scenario. We were married in Olongapo in 1990....I will have to check to see if the marriage was recorded or not.

If you married in Olongapo then yes your marriage is registered in the Philippines. You need to record your divorce also as you won't get a ceromar with out it.

Problem is that an US Citizen asking to marry a filipina is that you must bring a document from the US Embassy that dcalres that the US government cannot find any reason that you are ineligible to marry. Plus with the Filipino documents it asks if you are married or every were you married...if you say you were then you will have to "prove" you are "eligible" to marry. If you are less than truthful on the form then that could be a can of worms if the truth every surfaces.

A legal divorce outside the Philippines is recognized as not married for a foreigner UNLESS you were married to a Filipino in which case you must get the divorce recognized by the Philippines court system

When an american gets married in the Philippines you must prove you are eligible to be married. The way to do this is go to the US Embassy and they give you a document that says as far as the US government is concerned you are eligible to be married. If you have been divorced you need to present a certified copy of the final divorce called Divorce Absolute. Any check made by the Philippines government will only concern itself with the Philippines records. Best to be truthful in all documents you sign or there could be repercussions down the road.
