I've created a VCF file with using GATK. I have also done the filtering steps. And in fact it is a final VCF file. So, The next step is to phasing you right?

as far as I remember HaplotypeCaller puts a FORMAT field named PGT for phased genotypes. Of course, if your reads are too short or your variants are not close to each other, there will be no phasing.
