Hi everyone, Really great that i found this forums as its just what i needed to get help and advice. I've had a quick flick through the forums but i still have some unanswered questions, so if anyone can help me i would really appreciate it. So, ill tell you what me and my fiance have planned and hopefully someone will be able to give me advice. We are planning to get married next year, in February, in PH, and after we are married we want to start a business together in PH. Right now shes in PH and im in england working, i plan to work until beginning of january, then fly to PH 5 weeks before the wedding. We already know what business we will start, we will basically be starting by selling fabric and materials, which her mom does, because her mom will be retiring in the next couple of years so we will slowly be taking over. Now, for the wedding i know that ill need a certificate of no impediment, i believe thats what its called, which ive read i can get it in UK and have it sent to the embassy in manila, but how? do i have to visit the phil embassy in london or can i do it by post? and for the marriage certificate, i read that we must apply in ph and it will be announced for 10 days, then the certificate will be awarded, but how long after those 10 days until we will receive it? After we are married, we were going to go on honeymoon and upon returning to ph we would request a balikbayen stamp for me, but i need to know what i will need to do to allow me to work and open a business with my future wife. any help and advice would be appreciated, please forgive me if it takes a while to reply as im out 16hrs a day with work. thankyou.
