Can a wife sue a mistress if the husband is already dead? Say the mistress and the husband had a child. What if the wife had an affair with another guy when the husband was still alive? Can she be sued by the mistress or the family of her husband? Thanks.

Ubi Jus Ibi Remedium is a Latin legal maxim which means "where there is a right there is a remedy". The basic principle contemplated in the maxim is that, when a person's right is violated the victim will have an equitable remedy under law. The maxim also states that the person whose right is being infringed has a right to enforce the infringed right through any action before a court. All law courts are also guided with the same principle of Ubi Jus Ibi Remedium.

-----------------------

"Supreme Court gives New Insight on RA 9262 to include Mistresses as co-conspirators" - In Garcia vs. Drilon, G.R. No. 179267, 25 June 2013, the Supreme Court ruled regarding VAWC:
There is likewise no merit to the contention that R.A. 9262 singles out
the husband or father as the culprit. As defined above, VAWC may likewise
be committed “against a woman with whom the person has or had a sexual
or dating relationship.” Clearly, the use of the gender-neutral word “person”
who has or had a sexual or dating relationship with the woman encompasses
even lesbian relationships. Moreover, while the law provides that the
offender be related or connected to the victim by marriage, former marriage,
or a sexual or dating relationship, it does not preclude the application of the
principle of conspiracy under the Revised Penal Code (RPC).

Arguably therefore, mistresses can now be charged with VAWC along with the husband under the principle of conspiracy.

--------------------------

my two cents worth of assumpltion is...

That the death of the husband that implicates the term 'mistress' to the woman had already been terminated upon the former's death. And if no action was made to prove the latter's status as the paramour, the same cannot be carried after his death. It shall be the a burden on the part of the widow, to prove concubinage. or if her husband had a child with another woman. The death of the husband in this case, does not anymore provide truth to the notion, conclusively. The so called mistress is already free from that allegation. If the widow is bothering the lady on the account of a suspicion, it may be best to find remedy through an intermediary process by going to the baranggay hall of any party's jurisdiction and file for a protection order.

IMO, no. sa pagsasampa ng kaso, kailangan dalawa sila na kakasuhan mo. para saan pa nga ba at mag-sasampa na kaso? gagastos ka lang at aabalahin ang sarili mo.

Thanks for the update cashgats, this means the mistress were also liable for VAWC charges together with the husband . same din ba ang penalty sa mistress once found pag guilty ?

Good Day!
here's my story po. My father has a mistress po. a year ago, sinabi po ng father ko na wala na sila nung mistress nya pero yung araw ng kasal ng sister ko na confirmed namin na tuloy-tuloy parin po ang relasyon nila at ngayon araw-araw nang umuuwi yung father sa babae nya. Nagkikita sila everyday sa work. Lady guard ang mistress nya sa Naia Terminal 3 at ang father ko naman po sa Naia din pumapasok. everyday hatid at sundo ng father ko ang mistress nya after nya ihatid ang babae nya sa bahay saka lang siya uuwi sa bahay namin at ilang oras lang ang itinatagal niya. pinaka matagal na po ang 4 hours tapos pupunta na siya sa bahay nung babae nya. kahit nand2 po yung father ko sa bahay puro sila call and txt nung babae at dumating na rin sa point na kapag tumatawag yung mistress nya mother ko pa ang kailangang manahimik para di siya marinig puro sila landian harap-harapan sa mother ko sa cellphone. Ang gusto po mangyari nung babae ay magsama na sila at iwanan kami. Gusto rin po makuha nung mistress nya lahat ng meron kami na ipinundar ng mga magulang ko. magugulat nalang daw kami na nasa harap na siya ng bahay namin. Ngayon po, txt ng txt yung mistress sa mother ko at nagpapanggap pa siya na ibang tao. kahit alam po ng mistress nya na lam namin lahat ang tungkol sa kanya hindi parin po tumitigil. pinag aaway niya lagi ang parents ko. may evidence po akong nakuha, nakuhanan ko po sila na video na magkasama sa loob ng kotse.. na binanggit po ng father ko siya (ang mistress nya) ang asawa niya sabay kiss sa pisngi. Minsan po na lasing siya kinuha ko po yung cellphone nya at doon po nakita kong may txt ang babae, ako po ang sumagot sa txt at dun ko po na confirm lahat. sapat na po ba yun na evidence para kasuhan ang mistress ng aking ama at ang aking ama? Super depressed na po ang mother ko at wala ng ibang ginagawa kundi ang umiyak? paano po namin mahahabol lahat ng financial aspect ng father ko para sa mother ko at sister ko na minor? dahil halos lahat po ng financial aspect ng father ko gusto pong kunin ng mistress nya. Please help po. Thanks!
