The term “net income” as herein employed shall be understood to refer to the income of the litigant less statutory deductions.

Statutory deductions shall refer to withholding taxes, GSIS, SSS, Pag-Ibig, Health Insurance and Philhealth premiums as well as mandatory deductions.

You can file concubinage case against your husband and his mistress. The penalty would be imprisonment for your husband and destiero for the mistress. You can also file RA 9262.

Public Attorney's Office - Persons Qualified for Legal Assistance

A. PERSONS QUALIFIED FOR LEGAL ASSISTANCE

Under R. A. 9406, the PAO shall independently discharge its mandate to render, free of charge, legal representation, assistance and counselling to indigent persons in criminal, civil, labor, administrative and other quasi-judicial cases. In the exigency of the service, the PAO may be called upon by proper government authorities to render such service to other persons, subject to existing laws, rules and regulations.”
The Merit Test

Under PAO M.C. No. 18 series of 2002, a case shall be considered meritorious if an assessment of the law and evidence on hand discloses that the legal services of the office will assist or be in aid of or in the furtherance of justice, taking into consideration the interests of the party and those of the society. In such cases, the Public Attorney should agree to represent the party concerned. On the other hand, a case is deemed unmeritorious if it appears that it has no chance of success, or is intended merely to harass or injure the opposite party or to work oppression or wrong. In such situation, the Public Attorney must decline the handling of the case.

A Public Attorney may represent an indigent client even if his cause of action is adverse to a public officer, government office, agency or instrumentality provided the case is meritorious. Caution should however be exercised that the office be not exposed to charges of harassment, unfairness or undue haste in the filing of suits.

In criminal cases, the accused enjoys the constitutional presumption of innocence until the contrary is proven. Hence, cases of defendants in criminal actions are considered meritorious.
The Indigency Test

Pursuant to PAO MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 02 Series of 2010 dated January 27, 2010 and entitled as "AMENDING SECTIONS 3, 4, and 5, ARTICLE II OF MEMORANDUM CIRCULAR NO. 18, S. 2002 (Amended Standard Office Procedures in Extending Legal Assistance)" in relation to the provisions of Republic Act (RA) No. 9406 enacted by Congress and approved by Her Excellency President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo on March 23, 2007 and its Implementing Rules and Regulations dated July 14, 2008, the Indigency Test set forth in Section 3, Article II, MC No. 18, S. 2002, is hereby amended to read as follows:
Indigency Test. – Taking into consideration recent surveys on the amount needed by an average Filipino family to (a) buy its “food consumption basket” and (b) pay for its household and personal expenses, the following applicant shall be considered as an indigent person:
1. If residing in Metro Manila, whose net income does not exceed Php14,000.00 a month;
2. If residing in other cities, whose net income does not exceed Php13,000.00 a month;
3. If residing in other places, whose net income does not exceed Php 12,000.00 a month.

The term “net income” as herein employed shall be understood to refer to the income of the litigant less statutory deductions.

Statutory deductions shall refer to withholding taxes, GSIS, SSS, Pag-Ibig, Health Insurance and Philhealth premiums as well as mandatory deductions.

For purposes of this Section, ownership of land shall not per se constitute a ground for disqualification of an applicant for free legal assistance in view of the ruling in Juan Enaje vs. Victorio Ramos, et al. (31 SCRA 141, G.R. No. L-22109, January 30, 1970) that the determinative factor for indigency is the income of the litigant and not his ownership of real property.

To ensure that only those qualified shall be extended free legal assistance, the applicant shall be required to execute an Affidavit of Indigency and to submit any of the following documents:

1. Latest Income Tax Return or pay slip or other proofs of income; or

2. Certificate of Indigency from the Department of Social Welfare and Development, its local District Office, or the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office having jurisdiction over the residence of the applicant; or

3. Certificate of Indigency from the Barangay Chairman having jurisdiction over the residence of the applicant.

PAO lawyers and personnel shall exercise diligence in ascertaining the indigency qualification of said applicant/s.

Cases Which May be Provisionally Accepted
Cases Which May be Provisionally Accepted by PAO lawyers pending verification of the applicant’s indigency and an evaluation of the merit of his/her case in the following instances:

1. When a warrant of arrest has been issued and assistance is needed in filing a Motion to Post Bailbond or Reduction thereof for his/her provisional liberty;

2. When a person is arrested and/or detained, and appropriate immediate legal action is necessary to protect his/her rights (Sec. 3, Art. 2, MC No. 003, S.2008) ;

3. When a pleading has to be filed immediately to avoid adverse effects to the applicant;

4. When an appeal or petition for certiorari or prohibition has to be perfected or filed immediately;

5. When the PAO lawyer is appointed by the court as counsel de oficio to represent the defendant during the trial of the case, provided, however, that if a subsequent investigation discloses that the client is not an indigent, the lawyer should respectfully request the court to relieve him/her by filing a Motion for Withdrawal of Appearance from the case;

6. When the PAO lawyer is designated on the spot as counsel de oficio for the purpose only of arraignment, pre-trial or promulgation of decision;

7. In cases involving violence against women and their children under Republic Act No. 9262, where immediate preparation and filing of pleading/s is necessary to avoid adverse effects to the victims, except when there is conflict of interest (Sec. 2, Art. IV, MC No. 08, S. 2007) ;

8. In cases involving Children In Conflict with the Law (CICLs), where there is an immediate need of counsel (Sec. 2, Art. IV, MC No. 07, S. 2007);

9. In cases involving credit card holder/s considered as “delinquent” by the credit card company, and immediate action is necessary; and

10. Cases which require provisional assistance pursuant to Section 3 of R.A. 9406 (Section 14-A Chapter 5, Title III, Book IV of Executive Order No. 292, otherwise known as the “Administrative Code of 1987”), to wit:

“SEC. 14-A. Powers and Functions. – The PAO shall independently discharge its mandate to render, free of charge, legal representation, assistance and counselling to indigent persons in criminal, civil, labor, administrative and other quasi-judicial cases. In the exigency of the service, the PAO may be called upon by proper government authorities to render such service to other persons, subject to existing laws, rules and regulations.”
