Thank you for your question

Yes if a divorce is granted here in the Uk then you will be able to get remarried here

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

I am really worried because under philippine law, divorce is not legal so even if im divorce in england i am still technically married and cant re marry
Expert:  Clare replied 6 months ago.

Since you will be marrying in the Uk and not the Philippines this is not a p[roblem

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I search the internet check some forums and said i need to be annuled first in philippines before i am free to marry even if its outside philippines and even if i am divorce in another country is this true?
Expert:  Clare replied 6 months ago.

No that is only true if you wish to be remarried in the Philippines - or have your second marriage recognised there
