It is not easy for a creditor to obtain a court order or warrant of arrest against an OFW in order to prevent them from leaving the country. In the Philippines, court orders and warrants of arrest are issued only after a legal process, which requires the creditor to file a case and present evidence to support their claim.
To obtain a court order or warrant of arrest, the creditor would need to file a case against the OFW in the appropriate court and prove their claim in court. The OFW would have the right to defend themselves and present their own evidence to refute the claim.
If the court finds in favor of the creditor and issues a court order or warrant of arrest, it would be executed by law enforcement officials. However, the OFW still has the right to contest the order or warrant through legal means, such as filing an appeal or seeking legal assistance.
It is also worth noting that the Philippine government has measures in place to protect the rights of OFWs, including the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995, which provides for the welfare and protection of OFWs. The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) also provides support and assistance to OFWs who are in distress or facing legal issues abroad.
Overall, while it is possible for a creditor to obtain a court order or warrant of arrest against an OFW, it is not an easy process and the OFW has the right to defend themselves and seek legal assistance. It is important for OFWs to honor their financial obligations and seek assistance if they are experiencing financial difficulties.
