    Hello,

    Her marital status stops you from getting married or register as Law partners in Spain and this will be a problem If you need to prove the family relationship in terms of residence card or visa application. If she applies as an ordinary visitor, I believe the Spanish embassy in Manila has set a list of requirements.

    Regards,

This application will have to be filed by her , personally, at the relevant Immigration office ( Oficina de Extranjeria ).
    Bear in mind that as the spouse of a Spanish national, she will be eligible for the Spanish nationality application after one year holding a residence status.

    Thank you Patricia for the reply but I have one more concern about my Filipina girlfriend as much as i want to marry her but she was previously married to a filipino and they are not divorced yet because Philippines does not have divorce law and only annulment is available but it is very expensive which she cannot afford and i cannot help her yet due to my financial instability but we will save money once we are in spain to resolve this. But is her marital status would be a problem for me to bring her in spain? hoping for your reply muchas gracias
