AFFIDAVIT OF MERIT
I, ___________, of legal age, Filipino and resident of _______________, after

1. I am the Petitioner in the case entitled ___________docketed as Civil/ Criminal Case
No._______ and pending before the Regional Trial Court;
2. I have caused the preparation of the Motion for Reconsideration to which
this affidavit is attached;
3. I have read the allegations contained therein and I hereby state that the same is true
and correct of my personal knowledge and based on authentic records;
4. I have received a copy of the resolution of the Regional Trial Court dismissing my
petition for failure to prosecute for an unreasonable length of time;
5. The reason for my failure to proceed with the steps necessary for my case was due
to the fact that my counsel, Atty. _____ was admitted in the National Kidney Institute for
an emergency operation;
6. The partners of my lawyer were not able to handle my case because of their
individual work load and hectic schedule;
7. The foregoing circumstance that led to the dismissal of my petition constitute mistake
and/or excusable negligence which ordinary prudence could not have guarded
against and by reason of which I have been impaired of my rights, especially because
a judgment was rendered by the court without affording me the chance to present
my evidence;
8. I voluntarily execute this Affidavit of Merit to attest to the truth of the foregoing facts
and in order to support the grounds in my Motion for Reconsideration as it
really shows that the same is meritorious and in order that the Order or Judgment
rendered against me be reconsidered and set aside and a new one be issued
reinstating the instant case.
Affiant adds nothing more at this time.
