A team from the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Luzon Chapter will conduct free legal consultations for Filipinos in Hong Kong in November this year.
According to the Philippine Consulate General in the territory, free legal consultations will be held on November 14, from 1 to 5 p.m. and November 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.—both events will be held in the PCG's conference room.
A legal forum will follow shortly after the legal consultations on Nov. 15—also at the PCG.
Vice Consul Fatima Guzman Quintin said that between 30 and 40 members of the IBP are expected to arrive in Hong Kong for the two-day event.
Consultations are to be done on appointment basis, and that those who want to avail of the service may contact Ninni at 2823-8511 or Cholo at 2823-8537 of the Civil Registry and Legal Section.
In 2014, IBP members from Pampanga also conducted free legal consultations in HK.
Among the top issues for which Filipinos had sought legal advice involved marriage, separation, annulment, child custody, and property. — LBG, GMA News
