Welcome to the FAQ website covering document topics in Canada.
My ex boyfriend wants to marry a woman from the Philippines. The plan was that she would come to Canada on a travel VISA and marry him here. The only issue is, that she is legally married to another man and unable to get a divorce due to Filipino law which does not recognize divorce. Does she have to be legally divorced in the Philippines to marry in canada?
Yes, bigamy is illegal in Canada as it is in most countries. This woman needs to have her marriage annulled before she marries your ex-boyfriend.
