The Supreme Court on Tuesday said that a divorce obtained by a Filipino from a foreign spouse is deemed valid in the Philippines.

SC spokesperson Theodore Te said that 10 justices ruled that a foreign divorce secured by a Filipino is also considered valid in the Philippines, even if it is the Filipino spouse files for divorce abroad.
