DIVORCE SAFETY NETS

The House committee on population and family relations chaired by Rep. Sol Aragones created a technical working group (TWG) to consolidate House Bills 116, 1062, 2380 and 6027 pertaining to the dissolution of marriage or divorce. Rep. Edcel Lagman, TWG chairman, said there were built-in assurances to ensure there would be no open floodgates to indiscriminate instances of divorce. He said one of the essential safeguards for divorce was that the grounds are limited as these are the same grounds for legal separation and annulment. Lagman said there had to be a judicial process so that these grounds could be validated and collusion could be avoided. Among those present were Deputy Speakers Pia Cayetano and Sharon Garin, Reps. Milagros Aquino-Magsaysay, Cecilia Leonila Chavez, Ma. Lourdes Aggabao, Emmi De Jesus, Teddy Brawner Baguilat Jr, Rodel Batocabe, Francisco Datol Jr., Elisa Kho, Marisol Panotes, and Bernadette Herrera-Dy. / MVIP/GE
