About Punzi

Coming back home from his six-year “vacation” (aka “his marriage”), Punzi brings with him his two gems:

Bea

a daughter named Bea

Nico

and a son named Nico…

of course with a ton of law books, documents and other stuff…

With his trusty Lindsay (his iMac), Scarlett (his MacBook), his flute(s) and keyboard(s), saxophone(s) and clarinet, he desperately tries to save the world… one case, one tune and one blog entry at a time…

Professionally, he is a semi-veteran lawyer with still a lot to learn. His deals mainly with civil litigation and corporate matters, with an emerging practice in technology law and media.

He currently has a government consultancy with the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor, but vows never again to engage in full-time government service and the politics thereof, having been the chief legal counsel in a government-owned and controlled corporation.

He has already published an article on the legal issues on the La Mesa Dam Controversy, which is available online here.
He also blogs at Blogger and contributes over at the Pinoy.Tech.Blog.

    atty.,
    almost 3 yrs ago,my husband of 14 yrs converted to Islam in saudi then married his pregnant filipino single mistress, who also converted, under Islamic rites in a shariah court there. has their conversion to Islam made them immune to be sued according to our laws or shariah law , considering that being now muslim, he can marry up to 4 wives at a time? he gives financial support, but because of financial constraints, we cannot file for annulment.
    please help…..so confused.
    thanks a lot and God bless!!!!

      because his marriage with you is subsisting even prior to his conversion to Islam, technically he has committed concubinage. you can still file for annulment even if he has converted to another religion because what is important here is his subsisting marriage with you prior to his conversion. In your marriage, the governing law is the Family Code, therefore, a subsequent marriage, even if done abroad or in his case, after conversion, has no better right than that of a previous valid marriage.
