Getting a Marriage License (Philippines)

Once you have with you the certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage from the Korean embassy, it’s time for the both of you to file for the marriage license. This is done in the Local Civil Registrar’s office which is located in the hometown of the Filipino partner. Remember that the couple’s appearance is needed since you will be asked to fill out a form. But gather up all these papers first:

  1. Heya i am for the primary time here. I found this board and I in finding It really useful & it helped me out much. I¡¯m hoping to provide something back and help others such as you aided me.


  2. One thing I’ve noticed is there are plenty of myths regarding the banks intentions if talking about foreclosures. One myth in particular is always that the bank needs to have your house. The lender wants your cash, not the home. They want the money they loaned you along with interest. Keeping away from the bank will draw some sort of foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your publication.


  3. I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. You’re incredible! Thanks!
