  1. Affidavit of Legitimation by Subsequent Marriage
    -kailangan pa po ba ng cenomar? meron na po kasi marriage contract. Mag rerelease din po ba yung nso ng cenomar kahit nkaregistered na married na po yung pangalan namin?

    1. Hi Mae,

      Kung Legitimation by Subsequent Marriage ang concern mo, ito ang mga requirements na kailangan mong i-attach sa affidavit:

      1. Affidavit of Paternity / Acknowledgement (Certified Photocopy)

      2. Joint Affidavit of Legitimation

      3. Certificate of Registration of Legal Instrument (Affidavit of Legitimation)

      4. Certified True Copy of Birth Certificate with remarks/annotation based on the legitimation by subsequent marriage.

      Maaari ring manghingi ng iba pang documents ang munisipyo, depende sa evaluation nila ng papers ninyo.

      Kung kasal na kayo, mag request man kayo ng copy ng CENOMAR, lalabas na din na may reported marriage na kayo.

      MC

  2. Ng apply po ako ng AUSF sa anak ko tapos nkuha ko yung local birth cert.ng anak ko may remarks na sa ibaba nkasaad na “THE CHILD SHALL BE KNOWN AS ————na pwede na niyang gamitin ang surname ng papa niya.tapos nung kumuha na ako ng nso ang sabi wala pa daw sa data base nila pinababalik ako ngayun sa lcr .ano paba dapat ang susunud kong gagawin? Back to zero na nmn ba ako .hinahanap kasi ng nso ang tracking no.daw dahil wala pa sa data base nila

      1. Sa cebu city yun lang ang hawak ko yung local birthcert.na may nakasaad ng remarks sa ibaba.2005 pa yun sabi noon nila sa akin ok na daw yun .pero nung komuha na ako ng nso eh wala pa daw sa data base nila pinababalik nila ako ngayun sa local

  3. Good day Maam/ Sir!

    I am currently applying for a passport. I have already prepared my documents and asked for assistance from an agent. However, the agent informed me that the entries on my NSO birth certificate are not clear so I was asked to have as supporting document my certificate of live birth.
    The entries in my certificate of live birth which was the original one given when I was born are still readable. However, as per the agent the DFA office will not accept my Certificate of Live Birth since it is old already. I also presented a baptismal certificate as another supporting document.

    Is the reason they have given which is my Certificate of Live Birth being “OLD” valid so as to require me to acquire a new one issued by the Local Civil Registry? I was born in Leyte and currently residing in Cebu so it would require me a lot of time just to get a new one. Also, the said Certificate of Live Birth was honored when I presented when I took my Licensure Examination last 2011.

    I hope you can help me with this matter.

    1. Was the said document is the original or certified true copy from LCR? What you need is a certified true copt from LCR if your NSO copy is blurred or have an unreadable part. If you still have some relatives in Leyte you can ask them to request a copy of your local B.C

    1. Usually inaabot ng 3-6 mos yung proseso. pero kung may kopya ka na ng finality and endorsement ask mo na yung lokal nyo kung kelan ka puedeng mag follow up sa NSO main sa may east ave.

  4. i got a big problem with the local registry office of lahug cebu city,..i applied my birth certificate in nso via online,..well i got it on time the problem is the dfa didnt accept it because of multiple unreadable entries..its so frustrating….what can i do ?

  5. Hi, I would like to ask also the processing fee here in manila. Do you have information on that? particularly in pasig area. Thanks!
