If the NSO issues its annotated marriage certificate showing the divorce, and/or has an NSO-authenticated divorce document, it is valid for marriage and immigration purposes. But the failure of the NSO to have this reflected on the CENOMAR may continue to be a problem if she is interviewed in Manila or at a U>S> Consulate in another country.
I am a westerner and my partner is a filipina. She was previously married in the Philippines to a Muslim and she divorced after 7 years in 2009 again by the Muslim courts.
When we were obtaining all the documents necessary to marry, we noted the Form 5 CEMAR still listed a single record of marriage against her name. In order to marry, we had the divorce certificate certified at the NSO and red ribboned by the DFA. We later asked for another form 5 but it still shows a single marriage:
- is the divorce recognised by the Philippine authorities once it is certified and attested?
- Can she marry overseas if the form 5 still shows a record of a marriage, even if there is a divorce certificate to prove the marriage was ended?
- what do we have to do get the Form 5 amended ?
