1 Rights of 2nd Wife on Sun Aug 19, 2018 4:26 pm


Arresto Menor
Here's the scenario:

A man had a girlfriend and and they got 3 children. Named A, B, and C. When the man leaves for work at another city he found another woman and married her. They left the city and started their married life in some province far from where they came from. Since 1930's or 40's, a house and lot was owned by them thru hardwork, Conjugal property as what it is called. Had 2 children named D and E. On 1974 the 1st wife died of cancer. On 1976 the husband got married and took the 2nd wife to live in the same house. They adopted a child named F. No adoption papers. On 2008 the husband died of cardiac arrest. His eldest daughter, D, who works in the city, took her early retirement and came back to their house in the province. Living peacefully with the 2nd wife and the adopted daughter. On july 2018, daughter A (illegitimate) and D decided to divide the home lot into 5. Not including child F and the 2nd wife who still lives at the said house/property. The papers were produced suddenly, daughters A and D signed everything, worked everything out. House is included in the division of A and D, it will also be divided into 2. Daughter A sold her share for 2million and daughter D is planning to pay 150 thousand to the 2nd wife for her to leave the house.

1) What is the stand of the 2nd wife in this case?
2)Can she demand for a higher amount upon leaving? she lived there for 41 years and all of the sudden it was sold just like that.
3) no land title, just assessment named after the late husband only.
