i need some enlightenment.
my ex husband filed an adultery case there in the phils. after i filed the divorce here in australia. i am an australian citizen and he is a filipino living here in australia with a PR visa. we were married for 4 years and was separated for more than a year to satisfy the divorce requirement there in australia. we have a joint loan which i agreed to shoulder 80% of it until it is payed off. there were no issues between us until the day i filed divorce. he rejected the served documents and said he will never sign the papers until i pay off the entire loan which was quite impossible for me to do since i was the only one paying it off and had no money to do so...together with the server of the divorce papers, i filed an affidavit of the service by hand, stating the refusal of my ex husband to accept the divorce papers.still, the divorce was heard and granted in the 5th of june of this year without him knowing about it.
during that separation i had a relationship with someonelse. my ex husband was aware of it and never objected it from the beginning until just recently when he started pressuring me about the joint loan. i was forced to sell my car to cut down the loan and reloan the remaining amount. but still this didnt satisfy him, he gave a deadline and blackmailed me. he threatened to file an adultery case against me if i dont meet the deadline. i was scared of his threats so i did everything i could to lower the loan even more but sadly, i failed to meet his demand. i begged him to wait for the loan to be processed but still, he went back to the philippines last month and file the case. i was unaware of it. i just got a notice from a friend in the philippines a couple of days ago that the police was looking for me and my bf with a subpoena. until today we have not personally received the said subpoena since it was delivered to the wrong address.
may i ask if it is still possible for him to sue us even if the divorce was already granted? what will happen if we have not received the subpoena?
