 How can an American citizen marry someone in the Philippines
THE MARRIAGE APPLICATION PROCESS: Once an American citizen has obtained from the Embassy an "Affidavit in Lieu of a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage," he/she can file an application for a marriage license at the office of the Philippine Civil Registrar in the town or city where one of the parties is a resident. The U.S. citizen applicant will need to present: (a) the affidavit, (b) divorce decree(s) or death certificate(s) required to verify civil status and legal capacity to contract marriage, (c) U.S. passport, and (d) documentation regarding parental consent or advice, if applicable. (Marriage applicants aged 18 to 21 must have written parental consent. Those aged 22 to 24 must have received parental advice.) Philippine law prohibits marriage for individuals under the age of 18. A judge, a minister or other person authorized by the Government of the Philippines can perform the marriage.

Marriage to a U.S. citizen confers neither citizenship nor an automatic eligibility for entry to the United States. An immigrant visa is required for a foreign spouse to live in the United States. Questions about filing an immigrant visa petition to bring a foreign spouse to the United States should be directed to the nearest office of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, the State Department’s Visa Office (202) 663-1225 or, while in the Philippines, to the U.S. Embassy immigrant visa unit in Manila.

Philippine Requirement/s when marrying a Filipino Click here for info
Philippine law requires a citizen or subject of a foreign country to obtain a Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage. It is issued by the diplomatic or consular offices of his or her country, prior to the issuance of a marriage license in the Philippines. This serves as a clearance or permit from the consul as an actual proof of the subject’s civil status and his/her eligibility for marriage.  Go to either the US Embassy in Manila or the US Consulate Office in Cebu.
