I wish to inform you that you can take divorce abroad and then you can marry in Philippines. In Philippines divorce is not allowed but foreign divorce is recognized. Hence the only option available for you is to have divorce in foreign country and then re marry.

According to the Family Code of Conduct of the Philippines, family values are so strong that divorce is not permitted by law, though annulments are allowed under certain circumstances. Fraud and certain other circumstances could be grounds for annulment. Annulments are subject to a psychological assessment as well as an investigation to discover any possible collusion between spouses to get around the law.

Divorce is not recognized in the Philippines, only annulment. Even if a Philippino divorces abroad, it will not be recognized if the Phillipine native was the one who instituted the divorce.

You need to see about obtaining an annulment .

Probably not.

Unless he entered into the marriage on the basis for fraud, it's YOU who has decided to end the marriage. You want it, you get to pay for it.

A Philippine national may not obtain a divorce in another country and have it recognized in the Philippines. The non Philippine half of the marriage can, however, file for divorce and then it would be recognized in the Philippines.

The divorce you filed for in the USA would not be recognized in the Philippines. Had HE filed, it would be a different story.
