I.S. No. 12345


For: Bigamy (Art. 349,
Revised Penal Code)

VICTOR GUEVARRA,
Respondent.
X-----------------------------------------X

COMPLAINT-AFFIDAVIT
I, Yvonne Aguilluz-Guevarra, of legal age, married and a
resident of 123 Malate, Manila after being sworn in accordance
with law depose and say that:
1. That the respondent Victor Guevarra and I met sometime
in January 2012 while being schoolmates at San Beda College In
Alabang and became sweethearts after a short courtship;
2. As we were both too much in love, we hastily got
married on November 25, 2012 in a civil wedding ceremony
solemnized by the Mayor of the City of Manila. Copy of the
Certificate of Marriage dated May 25, 2013 issued by the NSO is
hereto attached as Annex A;
3. After our wedding, we lived together as husband and wife
in our conjugal dwelling in Sierra Subdivision, Manila City;

4. Several months into our marriage, respondent began to


exhibit his irresponsibility and no caring attitude. He would leave
the house and would come back only after several days. Such
behaviour on the part of respondent resulted in our quarrels and
verbal altercations;
5. Sometime in June 2013, we had a violent quarrel brought
about by his rude behavior and his expression of animosity
toward my parents. He did not approve of their frequent visits in
our house;
6. After our quarrel, he left our conjugal dwelling and this
was the last time I ever saw him. Since then, I had not seen,
communicated nor heard anything from him or about his
whereabouts. So I returned to my parents' abode at Las Pias and
stayed there for about two months;
7. To cope with the sudden turn of events in my life, I went
abroad to Washington D.C., U.S.A., on September 06, 2013 to
unwind and for employment purposes as well, and came home
after almost two years.
8. Sometime in August 2015, a relative who works in the
City of Muntinlupa informed me that my husband, respondent
Victor Guevarra has gotten married to another woman, a certain
Janine Arguello, in a religious ceremony solemnized by Fr.
Ramonito Sequito at the Jerome Emiliani Church in the City of
Muntinlupa, on February 14, 2015. A copy of their Certificate of
Marriage is hereto attached as Annex B;
9. My marriage with respondent Victor Guevarra is still
subsisting and has not been annulled or dissolved. His act of
contracting a second marriage to Janine Arguello despite the
subsistence of our marriage constitutes the crime of bigamy
punishable under Article 349 of the Revised Penal Code.
I executed the foregoing Complaint-Affidavit to attest to the
truth of the facts stated and for the purpose of charging

respondent, whose last known address is at 1525 Acacia Street,


Ayala, Alabang Village, Muntinlupa City with the crime of bigamy.
AFFIANT SAYETH NAUGHT.
