Republic of the Philippines…) Province of Davao del Sur …) S.s. Municipality of Bansalan …..) x-------------------------------------- / C O U N T E R – A F F I D A V I T I, BRENT G. BOLADO , of legal age, Filipino, married, and a resident of Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur, Philippines, after having been sworn to in accordance with law, do hereby depose and state that: 1. On 21 October 2014, I received a copy of the Subpoena with Attached Complaint-Affidavit from this Honorable Ofice of the Provincial Prosecutor of Digos City, Davao del Sur, requiring me to appear and submit my counter-affidavit and the affidavit of my witnesses within ten (10) days from receipt thereof; 2. On 31 October 2014, I filed a Motion for Extension of Time to submit Counter-Affidavit. I asked for a period of ten (10) days to file the same; 3. I am being charged by my estranged wife Jocelyn C. Bolado (herein after referred to as either “Jocelyn” or “Jo” for brevity) for violation of Republic Act No. 9262 or “Anti- Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004” , specifically Sections 5(a), 5(h), and 5(i); 4. There is no truth to the allegations of the Complaint of Jocelyn C. Bolado indicting me of the instant charges. The truth of the matter is explained below; 5. I may not be the perfect husband. I have fathered three children out of wedlock and my estranged wife knew about my past or my situation before we got married. In fact, she assured me that my past would never be an issue as she would accept me for who and what I am alongside my children; 6. But our ten years of living together as husband and wife and parents to our children have betrayed all the promises made. My three children who practically grew up with Jocelyn as the only mother they know could attest as to how Jo has manipulated and abused us; 1 1 Copy of the Affidavit of my two children out of wedlock is attached as ANNEXES “A” and “B” .

7. In 2002, Jocelyn drove us out of our conjugal home. We were forced to look for another house in Nebrada Street, Bansalan, Davao del Sur. But the incident was truly a blessing in disguise; 8. Growing up, my children were physically, psychologically and verbally abused by Jo. I learned from my own children how Jo would authorize the househelp to inflict corporal punishment at my children and to verbally abuse them in her absence. When she was around and my children became remiss on their assigned household chores, Jo would scold them real hard and physically hurt them; 9. Jo was also unreasonably strict and stringent to my three children out of wedlock, while she manifestly favored our own children over my children from wedlock; 10.I had no say in the house. It was always Jo who would decide for everything, including matters pertaining to my children out of wedlock; 11.Like any normal couple, I must admit we had disagreements. But Jo, with her mannish and overbearing ways, would at times overcome me; 12.When we were together, Jo would always create a scene that would all the time end up badly at my expense. It
