Procedure for invalid marriage
At the visa application stage, I now check with the PSA (Philippine Statistics Authority) to see if I have been married in the past. As a result, waiting for the result of visa application used to be 3 days and now it is about 2-3 weeks. If you have been married in the past and have not filed for invalid marriage, your visa will not be issued when you find out.
After having a lawyer, conducting an annulment trial and receiving a final judgment from the court, you will need to include special notes on your previous marriage certificate at the PSA (Philippines National Statistics Office). Only here is the legal extinction of the previous marriage.
