Family Law

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure how much specialization there is in the legal field here, but does anyone know of any attorneys or law offices specializes in 'Family Law'?  Prenuptials, etc.  Some folks here must have some experience, but I did not see anything in the pinned 'Lawyers' thread.


Thanks!

Look here. Maybe you can find the lawyer you are looking for. This is not a recommendation, just some suggestions on where you might look.

This is not really helpful input, but just for reference.
I can tell you i have watched My fathers adoption process of his 2 children which has been going on for about 7 years now and i would not want to find myself involved in any form of legal proceedings in this country.
It is beyond appalling. My father is the strongest minded man in the world, he has lived here for 10 year and has put up with every possible type of Philippines shit you could throw at him, and this process was enough to send him to tears.
No amount of money will make it smooth.
Don't pay upfront, they will ask you for more to continue the case at the most inopportune time, but you have to pay upfront to get any assistance right.... so this means u simply cannot get a lawyer here without being screwed.
The courts themselves,  cant begin to explain how many problems there are. Be prepared to find urself sitting in a courtroom for 8 hours before the person in charge sais: OK NO MORE CASES TODAY and u get back to the end of the line to try again tomorrow!

No, not even "try again tomorrow", apply for another date in court!

fecking disgraceful.
