NSO – 10 Steps for the correction of an entry in a civil registry document

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

Some tips for the correction of entry for your civil registry document (NSO birth, marriage, death, CENOMAR certificates)

1. Contact a lawyer who will prepare the Petition for correction of entry.

2. Lawyers shall file the Petition in the Regional Trial Court. The fee for filing the Petition in the Regional Trial Court is P160.00.

3. The Petition will be raffled and assigned to a branch of the Regional Trial Court.

4. The assigned Regional Trial Court shall issue an Order for the publication of its Order in a newspaper of general circulation for three consecutive weeks. Fee for publication varies.

5. The Order contains the date of the first hearing.

6. During the first hearing, the lawyer will present compliance of the jurisdictional requirements like publication of the Order in a newspaper of general circulation.

7. After establishing compliance with jurisdictional requirements, the petitioner will be presented in Court to testify. The Court may assign the Clerk of Court to receive evidence.

8. During the hearing, it is possible that an oppositor may appear contesting the Petition. If no oppositor appears, the Clerk of Court will receive the petitioner’s evidence.

9. After presentation of evidence, the Court will rule on the Petition.

10. If the decision is favorable, the Court will order the Office of City Registrar to correct the entry in the civil registry document (birth/marriage/death certificate of the petitioner).

      1. hello po sir, tanung ko lng po kung npa lbc na po b ung endorsement na nka address kay Atty. Lourdines Dela Cruz sa legal office ng psa, pwede na po b akong mgrequest ng corrected copy ng birth certificate ko?

    1. Depende kung ano yung na advice sa iyo nung LCR mo. Pero kung ako sa iyo ikaw na mismo ang magpunta sa PSA east ave. para mag follow up at mag request na din.Dalhin mo yung kopy ang endorsement mo.

  4. Hi sir ask ko Lang, kasi every time na magaaply ako ng work sa Japan na De deny due to late registration ng nso birth certificate, Bali po pinanganak ako ng 1995 sa probinsya pero nlng 2002 Lang ako na register sa nso. Maayos pa po ba Ito. Nakakuha nman po ako ng passport at tourist visa gamit ung nso dati pero Bakit for work purpose di na pwede? Hoping to hear you positive response.

    1. Ayaw talaga ng Japan embassy ng late registered na B.C sa dami kasi ng nag submit sa kanila ng nag assume ng identity using late registered B.C. Kaya ayan hinid na sila nag a accept. I try mong i reson out na matagal ka ng naka late registered.

      1. Hi sir, I already tried to reason out to the agency but they still wouldn’t let me pass.the reason for the late registration was failure to report. Is there any chance that I can get a nso bc without that tag, I’ve already spent quite a sum for that job, training, fees etc. and I know the fault here lies on the agency because they didn’t explain it in the first place but if there’s a way that would be better and if not then I’ ll just accept the fact that I can never work there. More power to you sir

  5. hi sir,

    pa advice po sana ako , ung bc ng anak ko ay naka register sa apelyedo nang mama nya kasi nong ipninanganak cya ay hindi pa po kami e kinasal at ang nakalagay sa kanyang bc ay ill, at wala din nakalagay ang pangalan ko don o info, ng papa sa bc nya, ang nkalagay lng sa bc nya ay ang info lng ng mama nya.pero nong nalaman namin na ganon , nag file kami ng ligitimation upon the marriage of parents / corrected bc in the same nrty no.1 month after kami e kinsal at mula noon hanggang ngayon apelyedo ng papa nya ang ginagamit nya sa lahat na transaction nya.
    at ang problema ko ay ganon pa rin ang official record nya sa nso almost 6yrs na upon the date of filling, may kakukangan ba sa documents ? or do i need some affidavit to proved na totoo at tama ang correction na yon? and what are those?

    plsssss i need your help ASAP………salamat AND MORE POWER

  6. hi sir.

  7. hi, I am planning to file for an annulment. I was completing the requirements when I realized that my middle initial in my marriage contract was “T” instead of “M”. The original Marriage contract I got from the municipal in 1995 was correct (I used this to renew my passport and drivers license) but when I requested a copy from NSO, it was wrong as “T” instead of “M”. I consulted an annulment lawyer, he said there is no issue, once my annulment will be granted, a cenomar will be issued and just submit it to change your passport back to your maiden name (but then my middle initial when I a single was “M” and not “T”). Will this be an issue?

    Next question, If I will have it changed, how long is the process?
    Thank you and I await for you reply.

    1. If you are going to file for an annulment that M.C will get invalid so no need for you to correct that error. For your passport once your annulment is granted you need to present the M.C from PSA(NSO) with annotation that it is null and void together with the court order copy that you will get.

  8. im using joana.but when i got my nso and municipal birth certificate copy joan is my name…what step should I do.thank you god bless po

    please reply po asap.tnx!

  14. Hi,
    Lahat ng records ko from elem to masters and sa work ang surname ko ay matire pero ang birth cert ko ay calle ……..tama nman birth cert ko kasi mariage contract parents ko ay calle din…….dati kasi nameke tatay ko ng birth cert nya….kasi may pinsan sya sa work…..matire ginamit nya….nung nsg grade 1 ako matire pinagamit nya…anu gagawin ko

    1. bakit now nyo lang nakita itong problem mo ang dami ng dokumento ang apektado. Nasa inyo naman ang desisiyon isunod mo yung mga dokumento mo na may MATIRE sa kung ano talaga ang record mo sa NSO or yung NSO mo ang ipa correct mo.

  15. magkano po ang magagastos sa correction of gender at how long po ang process…mayroon ba regular process and expedite process….at bakit pala ang daming mali sa local registrar..racket ba ito ng empleyado ng gobiyerno….

    1. yung mali, human error yun, kasi bago yan i-file, pinipirmahan ng magulang natinyan para sabihin na true and correct ang info. Kugn may mali, parehonh may mali ang gumawa at ang pumirma.

      Change gender, mga 6K pataas, 6 months, depende yan per LCR. Baka expedite meron sila.

  16. Sir,ask ko po sana kung kailangan ng court order pag correction ng civil status sa marriage contract ung icorrect? Nakalagay po kasi sa MC from NSO SINGLE dapat kc DIVORCED. Gaano po katagal process bago makakuha sa NSO ng corrected copy. Need kc for abroad. Thanks po

    1. Dapat may final court decision na sa divorce ninyo bago palitan ang record sa local civil registrar. Kung wala ito, hindi mababago ang record ninyo dahil hindi pa kayo divorced.

  17. Sir, itatanung ko lng po kung paano magpa correct ng name ng wife ko sa marriage certificate kc nmn nka lagay sa name nya meldy, eh yung name nya po is medy…pwede po ba iprocess online un kc pareho kmi nsa abroad ngaun eh…thanks po

  18. Hi sir! Good day! Ang problem ko ung citizenship ng husband ko and parents nia sa marriage certificate mamin is filipino, pano ichange sa american? Nag pass na kmi ng papers to prove na american citizen na cla, approved naman pero nung nagrequest ulit aq from nso ng m.certificate,filipino pa dina ng nakalagay. Thank u

    1. Nag request ka na sa local civil registrar and approved naman? May documents ka na hawak? Receipts? Kasi kung ok na dapat na forward sa NSO ng local civil registrar ang tamang records na yan and you made an initial request from NSo of the copy of the corrected record. Na endorse ba ng LCR to NSO? May receipts ka?

  19. Ask ko lang po, when I got my birth certificate at NSO, i found out that my birth place is SURALLAH, SOUTH COTABATO, but in my marriage certificate nakalagay po na birth place ko Guingsan-an, Norala, South Cotabato, I use the the birthplace from NSO BC for my passport, Philhealth, Pag-Ibig, Maari ko po bang ifile ito under RA 9048 for correction of clerical error for marriage certificate.

    Saka po yong mister ko wrong spelling ang name nya na nakalagay sa MC namin from “U ” to “O” po dapat at puede po ba namin i file ito sa Municipal Civil Registrar’s Office kong saan po kami ikinasal.

  20. Ang problem ko po sa birth certificate ay yung middle name ko at yung surname ng mother ko. Typographical error po. Garcillan po yun surname ng mother ko pero ang nakalagay sa BC ko ay Gracillan. Gracillan din po yung nakalagay na middle name ko. Ano po ang dapat gawin? Magkano po ang magagastos ko dito? Thank you.

    1. Punta ka sa local civil registrar, file ka ng correcitonof entry. Siguro mga 3-4K budget, pero baka mababa pa, ask the LCR kasi iba iba naman ang presyo nila

      1. Doon ko na din po ba malalaman kung anong mga documents ang mga need kong i-present? Like BC ng mother ko? Thank you

  21. here’s the situation: the LCR let me send my required docu for some errors on my BC personally through LBC so that it would be easily process by nso manila..when and where can i possibly inquire if my revise BC has already been record by nso? coz i reli need my BC asap.thankz for the reply.

  22. Good morning,
    Share lang po ng concern.

    Last 2006, nakakuha naman po ako ng birth certifcate sa Manila, nagamit ko sa pagfile ng passport.

    But this 2009, nang magrequest uli ako ng birth certificate sa NSO Olongapo City branch, yung birth certificate ng sister ko ang binigay ng NSO.
    Nasabi ko po sa kanila na mali ang nairelease nilang birth certificate pero ang nasabi nila ay yun lang ang lumalabas sa kanilang database.

    Pareho kami ng name ng sister ko but magkaiba ng date of birth.

    Bakit kaya walang record ang NSO Olongapo sa birth certificate ko?

    Ano ang best na gawin para maka-request ulit ako ng birth certificate? Hindi ko pa po nasubukan magrequest sa ibang branch.

    Salamat po.

    1. Bakit kayo pareho ng name ng sister mo?
      Dapat hihingi ang NSO ng katibayan na hindi ikaw ang nasa NSO bc na iyan. Madalas ang ibibigay mo ay valid ID, municipal copy ng bc mo o yung lumang hawak mo na bc na nakuha mo dati. Prove mo sa NSO na magkaibang tao kayo ng sister mo.

  23. hi..good day..my mother’s name is rosita but we found out that in her nso certificate it was lucita..we pay 3000 pesos for the assessment and another 2000 dw for publication..it’s been 8 months since we pay the fee..civil registrar said that we just wait for the papers but until now we have’nt recieve anything and when we go back to the office kmi p ngpaLBC ng papers tpos kmi p pinapatwag s mga kelngan and we need to go back again and again..and need to pay another fee nnmn..we live in province and we dont have enough money and my mother is going to retire nxt year..please give advice for the proper process of change name and how much is the processing fee..thank you…

    1. Fixer ba yung kinausap ninyo? Yung fees na binayaran ninyo may municipal receipts naman? Sa local civil registrar ninyo pinagawa?

      Kung na LBC na, may papers kayo na hawak na na LBC (receipt) showign that the papers have been endorsed?

      If so, then it is on its way to NSO. In about 2 to3 months may NSO copy na yan dapat specially if you have an LBC receipt

  24. gud eve mc! paadvise lang po ako.im working abroad and i used my maiden name in obtaing my recent passport because of my problem in my marriage certificate but few months from now im planning to work in another country but they need my marriage certificate.here r is the scenario: i got married in a church in 1997 and we used both of our baptismal certificate…but after 1 year of marriage we both found out that our first given names in the NSO BC is not the same with our baptismal which was used in our marriage( my first name in the NSO BC is Tahirih Mae and in my MC is just Tahirih; likewise my husband, his first given name in the NSO BC is Ben Biag and in MC and baptismal is Benjamin) our first child was legitimated after the marriage so in her BC it followed our MC entries..but in our second and 3rd child we corrected it right away at the hospital bearing our BC names…pls tell me what to do? im still working overseas..can my husband file for petition of correction in the entries of our MC? and what about the BC of our first child?i also wanna know how much will it cost and how long before the finality will reach NSO…looking forward for ur reply and more power..God speed!

    1. Ask your husband to file for correction of names in your MC using your NSO BC as reference. pag naayos na ang record, then file to have your first child’s BC corrected as well in the same manner.

      Your husband needs to go to the local civil registrar to file this correction.

      1. ilang buwan kaya before na maforward sa NSO ang corrected MC namin? thanks for the advise and more power!

  25. Nakapangasawa po ako ng Mexican pero US base , sa kanyang mga documents wala siyang middle name , dalawang surname ang gamit nila paternal and maternal ang format. Nag wworry po kase ako sa pag file ko ng Visa dahil dapat magtugma po yung Marriage Cert sa lahat ng document ko gaya ng passport. Maari po bang i ammend and Marriage certificate base sa format nila na walang middle name at dalawa ang surname , una ang sa ama panghuli sa ina? Filipino format po kase ang ginawa ng Manila City Hall.Salamat

  26. Hi, yung names ng mother ko at mother-in-law ko sa marriage certificate namin ng husband ko ay married name at hindi maiden name nila. Madali lang kaya ito ipaayos? Thanks.

      1. Pumunta ako sa San Juan (where I got married), binigyan ako ng list of requirements para sa correction of entry. Kumpleto na ako sa requirements pero ang problem ay hindi daw sila tumatanggap ngayon ng correction of entry dahil hindi ma-confirm ng Civil Service Commission ang Civil Registrar nila. Lawyer and court order na lang ba ang option ko?

      2. Yes, ganun na nga kasi hindi nga hindi pa approved yung Registrar nila, or if you want wait mo pa yung approval ng CSC, which is walang idea kung kelan ito mangyayari. Walang specific time kung kelan or if ever kung ma-approved pa ito.

  27. hi good day master citizen! ano po ang pwede ko gawin para maayos ang birth certificate ng mother ko. 3 entries ang mali , 1. JULJIT ang name na nakasulat pero ang ginagamit nya na pangalan is JULIET, 2. november 24, 1953 ang birthday nya pero dec 30, 1953 ang nakasulat sa birth record sa civil registrar , 3. her mothers name is Loreta pero ang nakasulat doon is FLORITA. kumuha n din kmi ng birth certificate sa nso manila at negative ang record niya dito.

    1. May record siya sa NSO pero mali tama? Tapos walang record sa Manila? Pero nakalagay ba sa NSO copy na sa Manila ang place of birth at sa manila nga nakarehistro?

      Dapat sasabihin ng LCR sa Manila (kung doon nga) kung pwede gawan ng bagong record ang mama mo since wala silang record, pero meron naman sa NSO. Ibig sabihin nawala na yung copy nila.

    2. May record siya sa NSO pero mali tama? Tapos walang record sa Manila? Pero nakalagay ba sa NSO copy na sa Manila ang place of birth at sa manila nga nakarehistro?

      Dapat sasabihin ng LCR sa Manila (kung doon nga) kung pwede gawan ng bagong record ang mama mo since wala silang record, pero meron naman sa NSO. Ibig sabihin nawala na yung copy nila…

  28. Hi, good day MasterCitizen! Itanong ko lang po if hindi po ba magkakaproblema kapag nagkaroon ng double entries of BC? Ang sabi kasi sa LCR kung saan ako pinanganak wala daw po akong records kaya napilitang akong magpa-late registered sa ibang munisipyo kung saan ako nakatira. Then, nang unang kuha ko ng BC sa NSO ang binigay nila ung late registered, tapos ngayon pagkuha ko ulit ang binigay na nila ay yong original na. So nagkaroon ng dalawang entries, possible po ba na kapag naka-link na yong records ko sa NSO (2 entries), ay sa tuwing kukuha ako ng BC ang ibibigay nila ya yong original? Magkaiba po kasi ang mga entries sa dalawang BC at nasunod ko ay yong late registered pero inaayos ko na ngayon at pinapabago ko lahat ng records at sinunod ko ang entries na sa original BC ko.

    Thanks po in advance, and more power!!!

    1. Everytime you request, yung unang record mo ang lalabas kasi yun ang official record mo kasi yun ang nauna.
      Kung nasunod mo na lahat sa original record ang documents mo, ok ka na. Yan na lagi ang lalabas, kung hindi, you just need to remind NSO and lalabas nila yan.

      1. OK, salamat po sa advise. Pinapabago ko na po ngayon ang mga school records ko para masunod yong nasa original BC ko.

  29. hi, i want to ask, we got a birth certificate copy of my husband in the municipal of Taytay Rizal but There was a discrepancy on the gender from male it becomes female and the spelling of the surname was wrong.when we requested for a copy from NSO, it says there that he has no record on file. and we came back to municipal of Taytay and telling us to file a correction of entry in the court because for sure there was a record a record in NSO. I am confused now. Should i follow the registrar of the municipal or help me what should we do. We want to correct everything because he want to apply abroad but he cant get a passport because of this problem.

  30. Sir: Tanong ko lang po kung gano katagal makukuha ang corrected BC? Pwede po bang rush if ok na sa LCR? thanks po…

  31. good day mc! my correction po un marriage certificate n nkuha nmin from LCR un citizenship ng father ko ginawang Filipino instead of Sudan.ang sb ng LCR thru court hearing n dw..enough na po ba na evidence un BC from nso?un lng po kc ang meron ako dhil divorsed na sila ng mom k at wala n dn kmi blita sknya..thank you

    1. Iba iba ang bayad pero meron sila tamang price dyan.
      May point yun gitnanon gmo na hindi marerelease yung corrected file kun ghindi pupuntahan sa main office, pero mga 2-3 months pa yun after mo file ang correction. Saka sa NSO office mo yun itatanong dyan sa inyo. Baka kasi kaya ng NSO office from your place na request yung corrected file pag pinakita mo na yung endorsement papers mo from LCR. KUng hindi man, mas maganda na ikaw na lang ang pumunta sa Manila for the corrected file, pero I’m sure may paraan ang NSO sa ganyan dahil malayo ang ibang lugar. Kaya nga sila nagtayo ng NSO offices sa iba iba lugar eh.

  32. gnun po ba..ang sv po ksi nung kausap ko na taga munisipyo hnd dw marerelease un gang hnd pinupuntahan sa manila..salamat po..nakatulong po ng madami ung mga info na sinabi nyo..

  33. opo ung 1300 na un para dw sa endorsement..ibig sabihin po niloloko lng ako na kyilangan pa mgpunta ng manila para dun ayusin…wla po bang bayad para sa pagaayus nun..bkit nghihingi ulit xa skin ng 3000 para dw po ibabayad dun sa nso sa manila….

    1. Walang bayad sa NSO. Ang bayad, sa LCR para ayusin at re-endrose ang document.basta dapat may resibo at makakakuha ka ng final copy na corrected na ang detail from LCR dahil binayaran mo naman yan. Yun gisang copy ng LCR papadala nila sa NSO yun, re-endorsement, may bayad din yun pero may resibo ka ng LBC.

  34. d2 po sa guimba nueva ecija kmi kinasal nung june 2 2012 lang po…ngaun para po mkakuha kme agad agad ng copy ng NSO na marriage contract ngbayad po kme ulit ng another 1300,dun po sa munisipyo..pero eto lng pong lastweek npancn ko na mali pala ung place of birth ng asawa ko kaya cnabi ko po sa isang ngtatrabaho sa municpyo na ngpaprocess ng papel..e ang sv need ndw puntahan sa manila para dun ipacorrect..hinihingan po ulit aq ng 3000…pwera pamasahe dw po…

    1. Sa Local civil registrar yan inaayos. LCR ang gagawa ng correction dahil sa kanila naka file ang form at ipapadala yun sa NSO main office for recording. Walang ginagawa sa Manila para maayos yan. SIla sa LCR ang dapat gumawa ng correction of entry. Bakit ka nagbayad ng 1300? Early endorsement? Mga 2-5 buwan bago magkaroon ng copy sa NSO ang mga ceritifcate sgaling s province.

  35. gud am..tanung ko lng po qng pnu gagawin q..mali po kc ung place of birth ng husband ko sa marriage certificate nmin..imbis na MANILA po GUIMBA ung nailagay..kakapasok lng po nung papel nmin sa NSO manila..sbi nung isang taga munisipyo na ngaayus ng papel nmin kylangan dw po puntahan sa manila,sya ndw po pupunta pero nghihingi ng 3000 pwera pa ung pamasahe…gnun po ba tlga ang hala nun?sna po msagot nyo ang tanung ko..salamat po….

      1. anu pong kelangan qng dalhin dun, tzaka sa lht2 po mgkanu po kya ang buo mga2stos q d2.. tnx’

  36. Gud day sir! i would like to as if how much it will cost for correction of entry for marriage contract .midle name of my husband.
    Thanks….more power and god bless…..

    1. Depende kung court order or papasa ng correction of entry sa local civil registrar sa munisipyo kung saan nakarehistro. Depende rin kung ang NSO bc ng asawa mo ay tama ang middle name or papalitan din. Inquire mo sa LCR kung ano ang pasok. Court order 20K. Correction of entry mga 5K or so.

  37. sir gandang araw po…

    ask lng sakin kase my iccocorect aku sa name at date of birth.

    sa name ang ginagamit ko is raymond ang nka lagay sa nso is raymon lng walang d sa dulo.
    panu ba gagawin dto kase lahat ng record ku is raymond sa school sa mga government office like sss, lto licence, comelec halos lahat raymond gamit ku..

    at sa date of birth naman dec 15, 1984 gamit ku and sa nso is dec 15, 1983 panu kaya icocorect?

    at mag kanu gagastusin ku dto?

    1. Yung pangalan, correction of entry yan kasi isang letra lang. Pero yung date of birth, court order yan. Kakailanganin mo ng abogado para ayusin yan sa local civil registrar kung saan ka nakarehistro na munisipyo. Medyo matagal yan at aabot ng 20K ang gastos.

      Unahin mo yung correction ng name mo, pumunta ka sa local civil registrar at ipa correct mo yung missing letter. 1K per letter ang bayad sa ganyan plus other fees na medyo mas mababa ng konti. Mas ok siguro na isunod mo na lang ang date of birth na nasa NSO bc mo ang mga records mo para mas bawas gastos.

  38. Hello Sir good day,how much do u think will it cost for correction of entry for the place of birth?i just found out recently when i renewed my passport…..i am really worried about this,i really need your advice and opinion,thank you

    1. I’m not sure kung dadaan ng court order yan. If not then mura lang yan, mga (estimate lang to ha) 2 to 4K. Pag court order inaabot ng 20K. Sana hindi na kailangan ng court order.

  39. Hi sir, ang problem po ng sister ko is, surname ng mama ko ang nasa NSO bcert nya. but ang ginamit nya sa skul is surname ng father ko. now, di nya po makuha Transcript nya bcause of that. what can we do sir to fix that problem?

    eto pa po. Ako naman po since hindi po ako naparegister ng mama ko sa munisipyo, nagpadelayed register po ako(out-of-town). Ask ko lang po kung gaano katagal ang pagprocess nun? hanggang ngaun po kasi wala pang feedback.

    1. Joana, kung married ang parents mo, you will file for acknowledgement sa local civil registrar sa munisipyo kung saan nakarehistro ang sister mo. If your father acknowledges your sister as his child, then papalitan ang surname sa birth certificate ng kapatid mo.

  42. GoodDay, may correction sa name ng husband ko, walang nakalagay na year sa nso, may correction din ng name ng parents nya.. Nagpa Affidavite na kami for the correction of her name… Ano po ba ang susunod naming gawin. .. kailangan na po nya kumuha ng passport… ilang months po kaya bago ito ma process… sino po ba ang pwede naming puntahan for the consultation of this… kase malayo po ang province nila sa mindanao pa…..thanks

    1. Angeline, kelan kayo nag file? Mat documents and receipts naman kayng hawak? Dapat may resibo ka ng endorsement, normally LBC receipt ito. mga 2-3 months if outside Metro Manila.

      1. hindi pa kami nag file… kase hindi namin alam kung saan pupunta at sino contact namin sa nso… may mga doc. na kami dito and requirement …. kanino namin ito ipapasa para asikasuhin itong problem namin…pwede ba rush processing… nasa magkano kaya pag rush…. thanks…

      2. Angeline. Sa local civil registrar yan inaayos. Sa munisipyo kung saan nakarehistri ang asawa mo. Depende sa munisipyo kung may rush services sila, pero inaaabot yan ng 2-4 weeks kadalasan. Sila rin ang magsasabi ng presyo.

  44. Hi MasterCitizen!

    Good day sir….my sister’s problem and also my problem is regarding her gender on her birth certificate,it does not indicate whether she is a boy or a girl.I have already read the solution,i just wanna know is how much will it costs all in all…TIA,nantz

      1. i need help…kailngan kc ng my soon be to be wife maayos yung birth nya..then the prob is yung nakapag register sa kanya is yung hilot na nagpaanak sa nanay nya..mali po yung middle tska surname…and ndi po married yung parents nya nung mga panahon na yun…so ngayun kasal na sila since 1991…how can we correct sa mga files sa lcr…meron po bang tao na pwedeng makatulong? at tsaka magkano estimated na price? we really need your help…..

      2. Go to the LCR and have the BC corrected. Pwede naman gamitin ang surname ng father since kasal na ang magulang. Kung sobra ang pagkakaiba ng surname t malaki ang mali, baka kailanganin pa dumaan ng court hearing. Matagal yun mga 6 months at magastos dahil kailangan ng abogado.

        Pero LCR ang magsaabi sa inyo kung ano ang proseso.

  45. Hi MasterCitizen!

    I was born in Bajada, Davao City but I’ve been residing in Caloocan City since after birth. I need to file a correction of entry because I’m missing a single letter from the CTC of my birth cert. It’s not practical for me to go to Davao to file a correction. Can I do it here in Caloocan?

    Many thanks!

    1. Joe, try going to the LCR of Caloocan and ask for assistance to arrange with Davao LCR regarding correction. Hopefully, they should be able to do this for an additional charge. If not, then our only option is to go to Davao for this, but I think Caloocan can manage if you ask nicely 🙂

    1. correction in my first message:

      my date of birth in local registry office record was 12-30-1981
      my date of registration in local registry office record was 01-28-2012.

      my date of birth in NSO record was 12-30-1982
      my date of registration in NSO record was 01-28-2012.

      i dont have any problem in my local registry because i verified and certified that it is correct, but my problem is my NSO record. how it happened that NSO accepted invalid records like this. is it possible to registered a name first before it giving birth?

      please give me advise on this problem. Thank you…

      2. Corrected reply:

        That simply means that the local civil registrar’s second page of your BC had the wrong date of birth. NSO just accepts what records the LCR provides them as signed and verified by the owner of the BC. Remenber, your record is late registered, hence 1982 na na-register. When it was done, the person signed that it is true and correct, ibig sabihin dapat nakita ninyo all the pages na tama and correct ito and you signed it na tama and correct ito.

        Dahil mali yung second page at ito ang pinadala sa NSO, NSO has no part on the mistake.
        LCR will only say na since it was signed by the owner or person filing it na verified true and correct, wala rin silang mali.
        Your option is to file for the correction of the birth record with LCR by showing them that your NSO record does not match with their record and have that corrected file endorsed to NSO.

        Other option? Use the NSO record since this is the official record naman and it is on security paper.

        You can choose from the two.

    1. If the correction is simple like a letter, some municipals (city halls) will charge around 1,000 per letter. if the the correction is complex like full name, birth date or gender, the cost will be more because this will need a court order.

      go to your local civil registrar in the municipal hall where you are registered to inquire of exact figures for your concerns.

      1. good day!!!
        i have a problem to my birth certificate…my middle name is Benito but it wrote to my nso certificate is Bineto…what should i do….i want to correct my middle name from bineto to Benito..because i used bineto to my passport but all my credentials was Benito such as my transcript of record and other important things…please help me and advice me what should i do….thanks

      2. Ramil, have your NSO certificate corrected in your local civil registrar. Once this process is done, you can renew your passport with the corrected NSO birth copy.

      3. my date of birth was 12-30-1981 in local registry office. but When i get NSO record my date of birth was 12-30-1982 and date of registration was 01-28-2012 how could it happened. i verified my birthdate in local registry in my province and confirmed that it was 12-30-1981. it was very clear that NSO had a mistake in the records because they accepted invalid records like this. how it possible that they can register the name before giving birth?
        please give me advise on this kind of problem.
