Let us just call him Mordeo. He was the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Dela Cruz (changed it for some confidential purposes). His mother and father were married last December 2009. By this time, Mordeo was now 16 years old. His parents' [whole] property were originally was from the grandmother of Mordeo. But now, I know its conjugal because of the marriage (according to the law). And for the time they were married until Mordeo's mother died, they had established for almost, I think, less than 20 apartments (or boarding houses). Now, Mordeo's father was claiming all of the property even it is not his originally even before Mordeo's father was married to his mother. But his arguments were it was now conjugal according to the law. The apartments is producing an income of almost Php 80,000.00 ( I don't know the exact amount), and all of it was claimed by his father. Moreover, his father was now thinking to sell all of the property. Does my friend Mordeo has the right to claim shares of property even he is 16 years old only? What can he do to have the property back as it was originally from the side of his mother even they were married? And what will be the division of shares of property if Mordeo's father will married another person? And by the way, his father possess a hundred sq. m. only of land before they were married, can Mordeo claim it also?
