1 technical definition of a bona fide resident on Sat Feb 09, 2013 9:10 pm

good pm attorney. one of the requirements in applying for a teacher in the deped is that an applicant must be a bona fide resident in a particular barangay.
deped's definition of bona fide resident states that an applicant must reside a particular barangay for at least 6 months. applicant X is a resident in another barangay.my clarification is this, if applicant X will only sleep at the residence of her friend( who is a real resident in barangay A) during weekends for a several times, is applicant X has the right to transfer and claim as bona fide resident in barangay A?

No, for the person to be a bona fide resident, he/she must be residing for at least six months in a particular place. Transient sleep-overs does not make a person bona fide.

DepEd for example requires documents that would support a usual Baranggay Clearance such as NBI Clearance, and any other similar instruments that clearly states your residency in a particular place.

Sleep-over? No.

thank you jd888. applicant X was granted by the barangay captain a barangay certification with a text as BONA FIDE resident with inclusive dates from her sleep over at te residence of her friend. applicant X was a former applicant as teacher in barangay W since she is a bona fide resident there. she intentionally ask such barangay certification in barangay A for a reason of complying one of the requirements in the deped that is barangay certification. applicant X was hired and connected in the deped 2 weeks ago. can i file a case against miss X?

my wife is supposedly hired in the deped if applicant X did not intentionally applied in our barangay. its because she asked the presence of her friend to accompany her to the office of the barangay captain, she was granted a barangay certification without the knowledge of the barangay captain that she's only doing a sleep over for a vested interest.

Bring this up to the Baranggay and make a protest. Weeeew, ang galing talaga... how can we expect improvement in governance if even in Brgy.-Level there is loop-holes?

I have 3 Titas, I have been sleeping over alternately for the past two (2) years, does it make me a resident of their respective Baranggay?

i already wrote a letter of protest to the office of the barangay captain but he did not revoke the barangay certification issued to miss X. at first the barangay captain called up the attention of the friend of miss X (the owner of the house she's sleeping for several weekends) that if he could find basis about my complaint he will consider it as misrepresentation and consider her as a blacklisted resident in our barangay. out fear, she informed the barangay captain that its not just a sleep over for miss x was really staying in their house.
