1 How to file case in Small Claims Court on Fri Jan 19, 2018 8:48 pm

Hi, I have a church mate who owes me money. I lent him 2.5M krw or 117,000 php in equivalent today. And that was already a year exactly January 09, 2017. He told me that he will pay when he arrive in the Philippines (We were both working in South Korea but I didn't renewed my contract). He go back here in the country without my knowledge. So I contacted him about his debt to me but he doesn't respond to my chat messages even if he is online for about a week now already. I'm planning to file a case in the Small Claims Court.
My questions are:
1. Where do I file the case. In my hometown (Bulacan) or the defendan't hometown (Santiago City, Isabela)?
2. Where is the jurisdiction in the MTC or RTC?

I hope you guys can help because I'm in need of money.

MTC, it can be your residence or his. you should send a demand letter first via registered mail and then get a certification from the post office that it was received. look up small claims on youtube and the supreme court website

you should file the case against both spouses. the case can continue if at least one of them is here.
