INFOGRAPHIC: How to get annulled
(READ: Part 1: The annulment business)
MANILA, Philippines – How long does it take to get annulled? Irene Bianca Distura, deputy director of the national committee on legal aid of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines, gives us a basic timeline of the steps involved in filing a petition for declaration of nullity of marriage.
Considering that psychological incapacity is the most used basis for this case, we are using it here as our example.
This timeline merely serves as guide to the basic steps in filing such a petition. The time frames estimated here will vary based on the court’s case load and the facts and circumstances of each case.
For example, cases where custody of children and separation of properties are involved often take longer. Also, if the petition is contested by the respondent, the case will inevitably take even more time.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
