Hello po sa inyo!May naissue pong warrant of arrest sa akin year 2009 pero nkawork na po ako abroad bago ito dumating. Estafa case po na originally 5 complainants po cla kaso nadismiss na po yung apat after they we settled with them year 2008 .Yung isa po kasi ay nasa abroad na nung nagsettlement kami kaya pending case cya at nkareceive nga ako ulit ng warrant year 2009. Willing po akong makipagsettle sa kanya kaso wala na po akong contact. Uuwi po kasi ako this year pero gusro ko po sanang maclear muna at hindi po ako makulong.Eto po yung mga tanong ko:
1. Ano po ang gagawin ko?
2. Kailangan pa ba akong magbail bago magsettlement?
3. Pwede po bang ang mother-in-law ko nlng file ng magbail para sa akin dahil andito pa po ako sa abroad?
4. Ang original po na amount ng bail ay 20,000 sa lima katao.Ngayong isa nlng cya, possible po bang mareduce ang bail?
5. Kailangan po bang same atty namin before lang ang lalapitan ko?

Salamat po sa tulong nyo.

May atty po pala kayo for the case before. Please coordinate with him, baka naman pwede sya na mag-ayos ng settlement on your behalf.

If maayos nya kasi yan, marerecall yung warrant and there will no longer be any need to post bail. Problem kasi if you post bail first before settlement, kailangan personal appearance for posting bail. Since you are abroad, I don't think this is an option right now.

So based on what you've posted, I think the best way is to coordinate things through your lawyer instead of your mother.

Atty. gaano po katagal ang settlement?in case po di na available yung atty. namin before,pwede po bang magrequest nlng po ng ibang atty.?
Wala na po akong kontak dun sa complainant ngayon, malalaman po na nya na nagrequest kami ng settlement?
Need ko po bang hintayin matapos ang settlement bago umuwi?

Thanks po atty.

Settlement will depend on the parties involved. Kung madali lang naman kausap, mabilis matatapos yan.

Yes, you can use another lawyer to initiate settlement if wala na contact with the previous lawyer.

No, you don't have to wait for settlement to go back to PH, but of course, nandun ang risk of the arrest warrant being served kasi active sya ngayon.

Hope this helps.

Atty. Wala na po akong kontak sa complainant. Ano po yung gagawin ko to settle?
Yung mother-in-law ko willing magbail in my absence, pwede po ba yun?
In case, pag-uwi ko nlng po magbail, aarestuhin po ba ako pagdating ko?
Need ko po ba ng lawyer pagmagbail personally?
After po magbail, may maforward ba agad na document sa home address ko na nagsasaad na nkapagbail na ako?Gaano po ito katagal?

Atty. dalawa po kami sa warrant na yan na nakasaad na 20,000 each. Pwede po bang ako muna magbail kasi ako nlng nman po ang uuwi?

Kaya nga po recommended that you get in touch with your previous lawyer or get a new lawyer so that he could get in touch with the complainants on your behalf. Mas maganda kasi you have someone knowledgeable assisting para documented lahat and may basis.

Yung mother-in-law ko willing magbail in my absence, pwede po ba yun?

No. You have to fill out the bail application personally. Kailangan din kasi ng photo mo and fingerprints. You also have to fill out the bailbond forms yourself (if you're not posting a cash bond).

In case, pag-uwi ko nlng po magbail, aarestuhin po ba ako pagdating ko?

It is possible.

Need ko po ba ng lawyer pagmagbail personally?

No, but it is highly recommended to have a lawyer process your bail so that he or she could address any other issues on the spot.

After po magbail, may maforward ba agad na document sa home address ko na nagsasaad na nkapagbail na ako?Gaano po ito katagal?

No need. When you process the bail, you will get the documents personally kasi nga, personal ang filing ng bail.

Atty. dalawa po kami sa warrant na yan na nakasaad na 20,000 each. Pwede po bang ako muna magbail kasi ako nlng nman po ang uuwi?


Bail is personal. Kung ikaw mag post, para sa iyo lang yun. Your co-accused has to post bail personally as well.
