Hi again Ms. April20
I am in need of you and Ms. Jovy's advise. My canadian hubby to be will arrive on the 18th (Friday) and we will go directly at Canadian Embassy Manila, once we have on hand the Affidavit of Legal Capacity to marry we will proceed on same day at Manila City Hall. Now, I have a fixer actually to work on the expedite process of everything ( be paying P25,000), and my schedule civil rights marriage is on the 22nd of this month. I was told by someone that I have to comply with the 10 days waiting period before i get the Marriage License, is this true? did you guys complied for this? did you really wait for 10 days? is it imperative that this 10 days must show on the Marriage License and Marriage Certificate? we will be running out of time if we will follow this as he has very limited time for his short vacation and he cannot extend due to his business. Please give me input here, be needing it asap. Thanks a lot... and God Bless.
Hi G. Ysabelle, il be giving you what i know ok, but you really have to verify this to the right people... (i mean in the city hall), my advise is don't believe any FIXER, u dont have to pay any amount to anyone not directly related to the fees u have to pay in the City Hall for ur wedding, maliit lng ang need mo bayaran for the wedding, as far as i remember nsa 1k lng yta ang binayaran ko nun (civil wedding), i supposed to gt married April, but kinulang kame sa oras that's why we moved it last quarter of 2010... Yes it was really frustrating na hindi natuloy wedding namin because we complied with what is needed... NEVER NEVER NEVER violate any rules or else masasayang ang lahat... kase if dayain mo man yan at may fixer ka na malakas but still mgrereflect po ang lahat sa PASSPORT ng husband mo, it will show there the arrival & departure date so again mbubuking na kulang ka sa araw (to comply with the 10days posting in City Hall).
So hindi kame natuloy mkasal ng april kaya we had the chance pa to know each other better and in a way maganda yun to proved that our relationship is genuine... with God's guidance natuloy naman ang wedding namin, dun ko narealize na kung para sa iyo para sa iyo talaga, kase my fear that time was.. another 6 months of waiting is very long and many things could happen, so i pray hard that God will make us stronger and ayun awa ng Diyos natuloy naman and everything is running smoothly.
My advise is: follow what is right to do, do everything right kase nagsisimula kayo, if sa simula palang mali na then lahat ng susunod might be complicated... don't rush, everything happens for a reason... if he can stay longer just to comply with the rules then it will be better... but i understand na mahirap yun, kase lalo na kung may ticket na pabalik...
So pray and reflect about the BEST thing to do ok... wag padalos dalos and do what is right... God Bless!!!!
(always ask advise from knowledgeable ones, wag ka po masyado susunod sa fixer, kase pedeng intention lng nila eh mkuha ang money mo).. Good luck
