1 concubinage on Tue Aug 24, 2010 8:18 am

hello,i need an advice please...I got married to a man in the philippines with an existing mariage which i am not aware of. We've been married for 3 years now with 2 children. We are already out of the country when the wife filed a case against us. He filed bigamy and concubinage for my husband and concubinage for me. i really don't know what to do now. My family told me that somebody went to our house saying that we have a hearing on Aug.31,2010. But what i'm thinking is that how could we attend to it since we're outside the country. Could you please advice me what is the best thing to do. And because we can't attend the hearing what would probably happen. And since we are outside the country can we be deported?
thank you so much...

being deported depends on what laws apply in the country where you are. i doubt it will be automatic and probably unlikely.

you can prepare your counter affidavits there and have it notarized before the philippine embassy or consulate then mail it for filing with the prosecutor.

you have the defense that your living together is committed outside of philippine territory so no philippine law is violated.

as for the bigamy, your husband will have to defend as best as he can. good luck.

Thank you so much for the reply. I would still want to ask if how many hearings are there in the case of concubinage and bigamy? And if we are not able to appear in those hearings or we are not able to produce the counter affidavit could the court issue a warrant of arrest for us? and if yes, could it be possible that we could be arrested here? By the way we are in UK, thank you

normally there are about 4 hearings in the preliminary investigation stage. it can be abbreviated if the respondent does not appear.

issuance of warrant is possible depending on the evidence the complainant submitted.

arrest is possible but highly unlikely.

I hope this post finds you well. Gusto ko po humingi ng legal advise tungkol sa aking sitwasyon. Nahuli ko ang aking asawa na may kinakasamang babae noong March 2009. Nagkaroon sila ng isang anak. Magkasama pa rin ang asawa ko at yung kabit nya, kasama ang isa nilang anak. Nakatira sila sa bahay ng deceased in-laws ko. Gusto ko bigyan ng demand letter for child support lamang ang asawa ko dahil may edad na sya para makulong. Pwede po ba i-salary deduction ang suporta na iyon mula sa kanyang sahod?

Yung kabit nya ang gusto ko kasuhan ng Article 333 base sa mga previous post dito. Gusto ko na sya umalis sa bahay ng biyenan ko. Ano po ba ang pinakamagandang paraan para maisaayos ito?

May nalalaman po ba kayo na nagbibigay ng suporta (in papers) sa mga tulad naming walang pambayad sa abogado?

Your utmost assistance is greatly appreciated. Maraming salamat!

Sus! bakit ka naniwala na di na problema dahil kasal na sila? anlaki sana ng laban mong kasuhan sila ng bigamy! kaso nagpakasal ka na rin kaya pareho na kayo ngayon may kasong bigamy!
