    well--you can divorce her without consent after 5 years. thats what my filipina wife did in the UK to her pinoy husband back home. ( recognised here --everywhere else in the world--but not there ). so you would be home free then anyway.

    is she paying half the costs ? no ?

    I think you've misinterpreted my reply but the op in his response above appears to say the same thing as me.

    here you go

    The divorce decree granted by a foreign country must first be filed for recognition in the Philippine Regional Trial Court (RTC). Once the local court recognized the foreign divorce decree, register it to the LCRO of the place of jurisdiction of the RTC which granted the petition.

    A bit more detail in this link

    with a UK divorce using the 2 year rule--the respondant has to sign agreement to the petition--and return it. So--in your case--she has the upper hand---at this stage. But if she now thinks shes got you by the short n curlies---tell her to go to hell in a handcart--theres nothing she can do--and then file under the 5 year rule--which doesnt require her to respond.
    or--do nothing. she cant divorce you. Unless you want to say " i do" to another.

    Fair enough, I was not criticising I was just stating that it is hard for her to be awkward from there, although having never been married I admit I don't know a lot about divorce :)

    It was at the second step where the Local Office (NSO we had to go to then back to another office in old Manila) refused to accept the RTC case ruling for Ana because original documents were not present this was because her original lawyer lost them between 2000 and 2005 but he never let on until he 8 months after he had extracted another 40,000 from me claiming that he could fix it all.

    That second stage was many years later and after our next lawyer had won the case in the RTC (Manila near Intramuros) to complete the second stage she had to go back to the southern most tip of Korea to the original registry office of her husband to get certified copies and even after she got back to the Philippines with that she never completed the final filing of those documents, to this day, even though she had plenty of money to do it on numerous occasions.

    That's one of many reasons why we are no longer together never mind the gambling.

    But yes your link is the correct set of steps.
