"DIVORCE BILL" HB 2380: WILL THERE BE A DIVORCE LAW IN THE PHILIPPINES SOON?

The Divorce Bill has been filed again in the Congress after failing to have it deliberated in the previous four Congress years. The Philippines is the only country in the world without a Divorce Law aside from the Vatican. The difficult process of legal separation and tremendous amount of money to be incurred to find divorce attorney or family attorney has been frustrating to many others.

And so for the 5th time, the Divorce Bill has been filed at the Congress in a hope that this will turn into law. Gabriela Women's Party Representative Emmi de Jesus and Arlene Brosas filed the landmark bill.  

GROUNDS FOR DIVORCE ACCORDING 
TO HOUSE BILL 2380


  • The petitioner has been separated de facto from his or her spouse for at least 5 years at the time of the filing of the petition, and reconciliation is “highly improbable”
  • The petitioner has been legally separated from the spouse for at least two years at the time of the filing, and reconciliation is “highly improbable”
  • When any of the accepted grounds for legal separation “has caused the irreparable breakdown” of the marriage
  • When one or both spouses are psychologically incapacitated to comply with the essential marital obligations
  • When the spouses suffer from irreconcilable differences that “have caused the irreparable breakdown" of the marriage
Also the following grounds of the Article 55 of the Family Code will also be the basis of the divorce.

I just hope the it will not be too much expensive to find a divorce attorney, or a family and divorce lawyers, but let us see if this will pass and turn into law first.
