1 Art 147 Family Code - Property Division on Thu Mar 28, 2013 1:22 pm

Cooper Law


Arresto Menor
I was having a discussion with some foreigner friends of mine who are unmarried and have live-in girlfriends. I mentioned to them Art. 147 of the Family Code that entitles the live-in partner to rights of co-ownership. Some believed that this must be one of those laws that are on the books but never gets used because they have never heard of anyone getting sued by his ex-girlfriend for the income and property obtained during their time together.

FIRST -- I assume that it would be used much more if the ex-girlfriends were more educated about the law, but I am curious. Is this a rare cause of action, or is it used more often than my friends suspect?

SECOND -- Other friends seem to think that there is no reason to worry because none of their ex-girlfriends have the funds to hire an attorney. Do lawyers in the Philippines take cases on a contingency basis? If so, is this a type of case that could be taken on a contingency basis?

FINALLY -- Can an agreement be entered, similar to ante-nuptial agreements, that offers valid protections against the effects of this law?

ok yung statement mo amiga, kahit bunso ay bibigyan mo parin sila ng share kasi magkapatid naman kayo. medyo napa-ngiti mo ako, parang sigurado ka na sayo lahat ah at ikaw ang magpaparte, hehehe! Kung walang naiwang Will ang parents mo, ang hatian ng property ay pantay pantay para sa lahat ng legitimate children, walang kinikilingan kung pang ilan ka pa,bunso o panganay o panggitna, babae o lalaki, bakla, tomboy
