I went to Manila city hall yesterday for some wedding preparations and I came across a tarpaulin that tells the steps on how to file a criminal case in the court of the Philippines and let me share it to everyone. I just hope that you will not encounter any criminal case or to experience filing a criminal case in the Philippines. Here are the steps:
1. Paghahanda ng kaso - this is the time to get a lawyer, if you cannot afford to pay a private lawyer get one at PAO or Public Attorney's Office.
2. Paunang pagsisiyasat
3. Pagsasampa ng Sakda- this stage will let you pay for filing fees
5. Paunang Paglilitis
9. Pagpapatupad ng hatol
