Ooops! Trending...

You can file legal case to those who have money debts to you, even sari-sari store debts.

Do you know someone, a friend, who borrowed money from you and after all this time, has not bothered to pay you back? Do you have a business, perhaps a sari-sari store, where one of your neighbors have accumulated credit so high they’re now avoiding you or making silly excuses already because they don’t want to pay anymore?

Don’t be afraid, because there is still hope for you to get your money back or get paid.

Thanks to former Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno, we now have the Rule of Procedure for Small Claims Cases.

Below is a 15-minute primer video, that shows how to file for small claims cases in the Philippines. It’s surprisingly easy and you don’t even have to hire a lawyer anymore.


The decision is final, non-appealable and immediately executory.

UPDATE: The Supreme Court (SC) has raised the amount of claims that fall within the jurisdiction of small claims courts from P100,000 to P200,000 effective Feb. 1, 2016.
