Television hostess and actress Kris Aquino will be seeking an annulment from her marriage to basketball player James Yap as stated by lawyers acting on her behalf.

If and when the annulment is accepted both parties are free to enter into a separate partnership once a gain which you can’t do with a contract of separation. Based on family Code of the Philippines “no child under 7 years of age shall be separated from the mother unless the court finds compelling reasons to order otherwise”. It appears that custody of Baby James will no doubt go in Kris Aquino’s favour. Although its believed Kris Aquino is still open to discussion on custody issues. The contents of the petition will be finalised once Kris returns from her holiday in Orlando, Florida, U.S.A.
