Arresto Menor
Hi. My parents brought a house & lot 6 years ago. We renovated the house and pinabakuran namin. Vacant Land yon tabi namin, pero may mga bahay pa sa likod. We gave a half meter na right of way pero hindi pa namin binibigay permanent. Since vacant land naman yon katabi, my mom decided na taniman muna yon half meter na right of way na ibibigay sana namin kasi may nadadaanan pa naman sila. They were demanding 3 meters wide na right of way para may pagdaan pa daw yon mga sasakyan nila. They never approached us but nagdedemand sila, since ayaw namin ng gulo hindi na lang namin pinasin. Then yon may ari ng vacant lot na katabi namain He's a doctor, nagalit siya bakit daw kami nagbigay ng right of way, he's planning sana idikit sa bakod namin, yon future bakod nila. The land we brought was so small lang about 140 sq meters. So para samin the fact na we gave a right of way was a big deal na for us para na din consideration namin sa mga nasa likod namin. By the way meron pala silang daan sa likod pero siyempre gusto nila may daanan sila samin kasi ayon yon shortest way sa highway. One day, my mom was so depressed, nakita niya yon mga halaman niya na putol putol na at sira sira na, so nagalit talaga ang mom ko and we reported it sa barangay hall, ang may sala yon mga tao nasa likod, that issue was settled naman na as long as hindi na nila uulitin. One day, gusto ng gawan ng bahay yon may- ari ng vacant lot na katabi namin so the right of way issue nabuhay nanaman. So ang dami ng harrassment ang ginawa samin like nagpaparinig, sumisigaw at madami pang iba, so it caused us sleepless nigths and emotional abuse and harassment. Connected sila sa barangay captain, yon isang taga likod is a barangay kagawad, so nireport nila kami about that right of way ang gusto nila ipagiba yon bahay namain at pati na rin yon some portion ng bahay namin para may pag daanan sila, siyempre d kami pumayag so hindi na settled yon issue sa brangay hall hindi nasetlled ng captain yon issue kasi d rin kami pumayag sa demands nila. Then this week we received a summons , right of way with damages daw. Pinapalabas nila na dati na daw may right of way noon d pa daw nabebenta. Nakalagay naman sa titulo namin na un property na nabili namin is 140 sq meters kaso nga yon may ari is related yon sa mga taong nasa likod at lagi siya nandoon, so malamang bumaliktad siya at kampihan yon mga nasa likod. Pinapalabas nilang ninakaw daw namin yon right of way at bakit daw kasi namin pinabakuran. My mom is going to find an attorney to answer the summons. Gusto pa nila kami daw ang magbayad ng costs ng suit plus we need to pay them for the moral damages daw and exemplary damages daw. Well, god knows at alam nila na walang katotohanan ang claims nila against us, pero the fact na willing kami to give a right of way tapos ganito pa ang ginagawa nila samin at hindi pa namin binabayaran sakanila yon half meter na right of way na ibibigay sana namin pero umaabuso na sila at gusto pa nilang my daanan ng sasakyan nila, pero nakalagay din sa summons na there are willing to pay para sa indemnity ng right of way kaso nga ang liit ng lupa namin at walang ng space at lahat ng claims nila ay gawa gawa lang. Any advice po na dapat gawin? alam ko naman na nasa amin ang katotohanan pero malakas po ba ang laban namin? How long po ang process ng civil case?

your focus now should be to find a lawyer and file an answer to the complaint. you only have 15 days.

if you can't get one in that time, file a notice with the court that you are still looking for a lawyer.

the law only contemplates access, not a car path.
