Filipino citizen and a resident of 91 Tabi-tabi Street, Quezon City, where
she may be served with summons, orders and other legal processes of this
Honorable Court;

2. Petitioner and respondent are husband and wife, having been legally
married on December 2, 2002 at Sto Nino Parish Shrine, in Bago Bantay
Quezon City, a copy of their marriage certificate is hereto attached as
Annex “A”;

3. A child was born in wedlock, Bhenjiemien Yakov G. Bernardo, aged 6

years old, a copy of his Certificate of Live Birth is hereto attached as
Annex “B”;

4. In retrospect petitioner and respondent were childhood friends, growing

up in the same neighborhood in Project 8 and were even schoolmates at
St. Patrick School in high school. Back then, petitioner had a girlfriend,
Cristina, who was respondent’s friend as well. After he and Cristina
broke up, he lived in with another girlfriend, whom he found out was
married. Frustrated, he returned to his parents’ home and met respondent
again after a long while. This time, they were already college graduates
and were both scouting for employment. But as it was difficult to get an
office job then, they decided to be business partners by putting up a small
food cart business selling fish balls.

5. Aside from being business partners, they were likewise attracted to each
other physically. although there was no emotional attachments to one
another, they frequently indulged in sexual intimacies which resulted in
respondent’s pregnancy. Petitioner did not want to marry respondent for
he knew her to be a playgirl, having had a long list of boyfriends. He
however vowed to support their child.

6. When petitioner’s parents, who were devout catholics and followers of

the conservative mater dei, came to know about respondent’s pregnancy,
they prevailed upon petitioner to marry respondent. Despite his
protestations, they were married in haste and in a simple church

7. After a thorough search of our marriage records, there was no marriage

license issued by the Civil Registrar.

8. In this event, a request for furnishing the same was sent to the Civil
Registrar of Quezon City but the former affirmed that there was no
marriage license being issued for the marriage of the petitioner and the


WHEREFORE, premises considered, it is most respectfully prayed that the

marriage of the petitioner with the respondent be declared a nullity. It is likewise
prayed that if and when parties are able to enter into an extrajudicial settlement as
to custody and joint parenting, the same be adopted by this Court and in the
absence thereof, a fair and just settlement of their rights and obligations as parents
be adjudicated by this Honorable Court. We pray for such other reliefs, just and
equitable under the premises.
