Good news for Filipinos around the world – you now have a legal service you can access 24/7, anytime, anywhere!
PLDT Global Corp. (PGC), the international marketing, sales and operating unit of Philippines’ telecoms leader PLDT, has recently partnered with MyLegalWhiz to provide online legal assistance to overseas Filipinos worldwide.
This partnership empowers Filipinos abroad to access an online facility called MyLegalWhizOFW that offers legal knowledge, assistance and guidance on the rights of Filipinos whether living in the Philippines or abroad.
“Committed to serving working and migrant Filipinos worldwide, we have formed this partnership to enable them to seek affordable legal assistance anytime online, sparing them from worrying too much about complicated legal problems,” said PLDT EVP and Head of Enterprise, International, and Carrier Business Eric Alberto. “This credits-based innovative service is really beneficial to Filipinos overseas, especially those who have concerns on properties, businesses, and extended families in the Philippines.”
Overseas Filipinos may access the new service by visiting the online portal at https://ofw.mylegalwhiz.com and signing up. They will receive an activation link via email that they can use to log on to the website, where they can submit their legal inquiries and receive legal guidance from LEA, which stands for Legal Engineer Assistant. LEA helps in doing legal topic research, explanation of legal terms, and even helps in drafting legal forms.
Payment for the service is credits-based, through an e-wallet with a minimum loadable amount of P500 or $10/$12. Credits can be used for receiving legal responses and downloading legal forms.
