Unhappy could quickly have a fast and hassle-free approach out of their marriage if the invoice that House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez helps turns into a regulation.
Alvarez on Monday stated one of the House of Representatives’ priorities in the course of the second common session is the passage of a measure that can enable for the dissolution of marriage “without the need for an extensively adversarial system.”
In his opening remarks in the beginning of the second common session Monday morning (July 24), Alvarez stated the invoice will enable to mutually agree to finish their marriage topic to the courtroom’s approval.
He stated Taguig City Rep. Pia Cayetano has agreed to file the measure.
In a press convention at midday, Alvarez stated needn’t anticipate months for his or her marriage to be dissolved if the invoice is handed by Congress.
“Hindi naman siguro buwan, araw lang. Kasi isang hearing lang yan eh. O, ang itatanong lang naman yung–kung talaga bang kusang loob kayong pumunta dito sa kasunduang ito. O tapos titingnan nung judge kung okay yung–yung ibang agreements halimbawa iyong hatian ng property … yung mga children – tapos na,” he defined.
Alvarez stated Cayetano’s invoice shouldn’t be confused as a divorce measure. He stated he doesn’t need to “copy” different international locations’ legal guidelines.
The Speaker, a lawyer, stated the dissolution of marriage is completely different from annulment for the reason that latter carries the presumption that the marriage was void from the beginning.
“Dito sa dissolution hindi po ganon nire-recognize po natin yan nagkaroon ng marriage kaya lang nagkaroon ng hindi pagkaka-unawaan nung dalawang parties,” he stated.
Aware of the Catholic church’s sturdy affect within the nation, Alvarez stated committee hearings will likely be held quickly on the invoice on dissolution of marriage to get the general public’s sentiment about it.
