Hello attorneys.
Me tinakbuhan po ako ng kaopisina na may utang sa akin. gusto ko po ma-settle namin sa barangay ang lahat ng obligasyon nya bago humantong ang lahat sa pagfile ng small claims case. . .
hindi ko po sigurado kung saang barangay ang exact residence nya. sabi po ng katrabaho ko ay sa BARANGAY A sya naka-reside dahil dun yung residence ng husband nya at nandoon din ang mga anak nila. ang problema po ay hindi na sila nagsasama ng husband nya. ang sabi ng secretary ng BARANGAY A ay dun na natutulog sa bahay ng tatay nya ang kaopisina ko, which is BARANGAY B. kinausap ko po ang tatay nya na konsehal pala sa BARANGAY B. ang sabi ay di na umuuwi sa kanila ang anak nya at dapat daw sa BARANGAY A ako mag-file ng complaint. . .
nalilito po talaga ako.
saan po ba ako dapat mag file ng complaint, sa BARANGAY A or BARANGAY B?

Maraming salamat po!

first, do you both live in the same city or municipality?

what is her declared residence in your office's records? i'd go with that address.

Thanks for the fast reply.
Barangay A po ang declared residence nya.
Yun pa rin po ang isang dilemma ko. Matagal na po ako naka-reside dito sa CITY A (more than 2 years) dahil dito ang work ko. But naka-rehistro po ako sa CITY B. Ang me utang sa akin ay taga CITY A. Medyo malayo po ang distansya ng CITY A at CITY B.... Kung sakaling magiging hadlang po ito sa pina-plano kong pag file ng complaint at pag proceed ng small claims case, pwede po ba ako mag-paregister as residence sa barangay ng CITY A na naka-locate ang apartment na tinutuluyan ko?

when you say rehistro, do you mean at comelec? the rule is where you actually reside, not where you vote.

Rehistro sa comelec po ang ibig sabihiin ko. thank you po sa clarification attorney. . . ang follow-up question ko po ay kung paano legal na maeestablish na sa isang barangay ng CITY A ako naka-reside. sufficient na po ba kung kukuha ako ng cedula sa CITY A o kailangan ko pa po bang magpa-certify sa barangay na matagal na akong nag-rerent within their area?

PS: kung pwede po, maaari nyo po ba akong bigyan ng link about sa rule na sinabi nyo sa inyong reply (where you actually reside, not where you vote)?

a bgy certification is best.

as an exception to the requirement:

[5] Disputes involving parties who actually reside in barangays of different cities or municipalities, except where such barangay units adjoin each other and the parties thereto agree to submit their differences to amicable settlement by an appropriate Lupon;

salamat po sa inyong reply at sa pagbigay ng link...
nakapag-research din po ako tungkol sa concept ng residence. ako po ay matagal ng nag-rerenta ng apartment sa CITY A dahil nandun po ang trabaho ko. pero ako naman po ay umuuwi rin sa aking native town sa ancestral home namin sa CITY B. based on my readings, ang legal residence/domicile po ay "the place where a party actually or constructively has his permanent home, where he, no matter where he may be found at any given time, eventually intends to return and remain (animus manendi).
so kahit matagal na po akong nag-aapartment sa CITY A, maaituturing ko pa rin pong legal residence ang bahay ng mga magulang ko sa CITY B dahil kung hindi dahil sa aking trabaho sa CITY A ay talaga namang sa bahay ng aking mga parents ako mamamalagi.
tama po ba ako?
hihingiin ko lang po ang inyong expertong opinion tungkol sa aking haka-haka.
maraming salamat po at God bless, atty!

this is why i clarified that in the barangay where you actually reside.

animus manendi or intent to return refers to domicile under election law. for purposes of the barangay law, there is no doubt that it refers to where you actual physical presence is located.
