Im out of the country since Nov 6, 2012. I filed case in NLRC and had 2 hearings however my ex-employer didnt attend the hearing, maybe they know that im leaving the country. Im here in USA for good amybe will be back after 5years or so. But I dont want to throw everything away , Can somebody help me pls?!
I had my atty from 1st to 2nd hearing (2nd hearing I was in the USA already, I just sent him SPA) but like I said they never showed up. Now my atty said we need to file Position papers, but I cant afford to pay him at this point. Maybe early next year I can, Im completely new here in the USA. My question is;
1. Until when can i file the petition papers? Can we ask for extension until I got the money to proceed?
2. Is there any way to resolve my case since my ex-employer didnt show up?
What are my options?
3. Is there any lawyer can help me w/ this? I cant pay right now but early next year I can once I got a job. (i felt that my current lawyer is too busy to handle my case)
