Default Legal assistance in the Philippines

I need to find some resource for free legal assistance to poor women in the Philippines. Family law, there are no divorces here, and it costs way more than these women can afford for annulments. There must be some resource for these women, with abusive, drunk, non support paying husbands?

Please help

I know of a case of an American that has been charged with Estafa because he married a women and had kids with her, and later found out that she is still married, but was seperated from her husband as she was not granted a divorce and could not afford an annulment, the law is very strange in the Philippines and a lot of coruption in this country

There is this "virgin" blog that is open for free comprehensive legal advice in the Philippine setting. The blogger is a Filipino Lawyer and the site is not yet inundated with posts and questions. So if you ask questions he can comprehensively answer your queries. Here is the link:

Ano pong pwede kong gawin if my wife wants to file a case against me RA 9262 pero ayaw nmn nyang tumanggap ng sustento galing sakin? Kasi ung padala ko sinasauli nya sa lola ko. Pano po gagawin ko and how does that RA 9262 works? Kasi nagwowork po ako sa Dubai and shes threathening me na pababawian nya ko ng visa kasi yun ung gusto nya and not the money.

Actually, I have seen cases where, under the Family Code, this is not necessarily an absolute bar. But, you really do need to speak with a lawyer on the ground overseas, so to speak. One thing I know is that WLD has so many lawyers and I'll bet they have contacts in the Philppines as well. I think your best bet would be to just get a referral from WLD. That way you can know for sure.
