Due to physical distance with their spouses, OFWs are often victims of broken relationships.

Last October 1, Representative of Sol Aragones, chairperson of House Committee on Population and Family Relation, ACT-OFW party-list Rep. Aniceto ‘John’ Bertiz Jr., and other congressmen met with some 200 OFWs in Hong Kong.

Several groups of OFWs in Hong Kong expressed their support for the bill authored by House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

Under the proposal, the process for the dissolution of marriage starts with the filing of a joint petition to the court, which includes the agreement of the couple on the custody of the children and their support, as well as the sharing in the division of their properties.

OFWs in Hong Kong said it could simplify the process of ending the failed marriage.

In Rappler's article, Hong Kong-based Filipino journalist and lawyer Daisy Mandap said the Philippines should have a divorce lawyer to limit the burden on OFWs who want to end their marriage.

Mandap added that Atty. Raymond Fortun said that annulment costs P50,000 to P300,000.

She added that the amount is too much for an OFW.

Aside from this OFWs in Hong Kong worry about the future of their investment when their estranged spouses are legally entitled to these under the Family Code.
