Hello...may I please ask for a legal advice as I do not have the financial capability to get my own lawyer and I am not qualified to get a PAO service. My male neighbor kicked me in my tummy and spit on my face while I was inside my apartment, standing on my screen door talking to my landlady. He spit on my face thru the screen door and he forced open the door to kick me in my tummy. I am a female, 33 years old but I am a small girl while my neighbor is big and tall. I had my medico legal at PGH and I already filed a complaint at our barangay. The thing is during the 1st hearing with our Barangay Captain, my neighbor and his wife are still very proud instead of being apologetic to what they have done to me. I was shaking and really traumatized when I saw them during the hearing...We will have our second hearing this week but the thing is, I do not want to see them again. My question is, is it possible to just ask our Barangay Captain to just let them promise and sign not to bully or hurt me in any way without my presence? What could I say to our Barangay Captain that would let him assist me in this case without my presence because I really do not want to see my neighbor anymore. It just scared me too much.
Thank you for your usual support and help. Hoping for your response.

you have to be present at the hearing to fully protect your rights. dont let the other party misconstrue your absence as abandonment of your claim. pumunta ka para makapirma ka sa anumang settlement na mapagkasunduan nyo.

Thank you attyesc for the advice. I will gather all my courage to go and i'll just settle with them promising that they wont bother me again. My neighbor is also a tenant at my apartment building so I will just go and move to another place. From the looks of it, my landlady doesnt want to get in the middle because she have teenage daughters and she is afraid that my neighbor and his friends would take revenge or whatsoever. Also, the barangay is acting as if what happened is not a big deal. Even if our Barangay Captain mentioned to me that when he was still a Kagawad, they were always being called to reprimand my neighbor and his friends for drinking outside and being too noisy...Or would it be better if I just leave the case alone, I mean, have the hearing cancelled or not show up then just move? Thank you.
