Legal separation po ba or annulment ang dapat sa amin?

This person has chosen to hide his/her identity.

I need a legal advise kung ano ang pwede naming gawin, mag asawa kami dati pero separated na for almost 20 years. Nauna siyang nagkaanak sa iba habang nasa Saudi ako at after 6 years ay nagkaroon din ako ng 2 anak sa iba. Maayos naman ang naging hiwalayan namin at ang kulang lang sana ay totoong dokumento na magpapatunay na hiwalay na nga kami. Kung meron po sana kaming pwedeng lapitan na family lawyer para ma finalize na namin ang paghihiwalay ay buong puso po namin kayong pasasalamatan. Salamat po sa sasagot.

Actually nakadepende po yan sa mga grounds kasi iba2x ang grounds for Legal Separation at Annulment. Mas mabuti na maski isa sa inyo will engage a lawyer to evaluate kung ano ang dapat maifile. However, sa nakikita ko mas makabubuti na annulment nalang para naman free na kayong magpakasal sa mga kasalukuyang partner na rin po ninyo. Sa Legal Separation kasi hindi ka pwedeng mag asawa muli. You will be interviewed by a psychologist also if the ground for annulment is psychological incapacity po. Medyo mahal din ang annulment mas mabuting kung saan kayo nakatira doon nalang po kayo maghanap ng lawyer po.
