A family member lives in the Philippines, left from England in 2014, he is struggling financially and it looks like bankruptcy is the only way out of his situation. Is this still possible to do and would he still be allowed to remain in the Philippines?
If he left within three years then he can still declare BR in this country but he will have to get someone to help him sort it out - not quite sure how things work now as the laws have just changed. There is no reason why he couldn't remain in the Philippines unless there is a problem with their laws.
Hopefully Viki can pick up on this one and advise.
