NSO Marriage Certificate

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

For those who are married or just got married, securing an NSO marriage certificate will ensure that you have a registered copy of your solemn union. Here’s a definition of this document and how you can get one.

A Marriage Certificate from the National Statistics Office (NSO) is a document that shows social union or a legal contract between people that creates kinship. Such a union, often formalized via a wedding ceremony, may also be called matrimony. A general definition of marriage is that it is a social contract between two individuals that unites their lives legally, economically and emotionally.

It is an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged in a variety of ways, depending on the culture or subculture in which it is found. The state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a legal, consensual, and contractual relationship recognized and sanctioned by and dissolvable only by law.

A marriage certificate is a document containing the important details of marriage, signed by the couple and by all in attendance. Marriage occurs during the meeting for worship after approval is obtained from the meetings of which the two people are members. Approval is based on a statement of good character and clearness from any other engagements. The clerk usually records a copy of the marriage certificate in the meeting’s records.

Marriage certificates can be requested from the NSO where the interested party shall provide the following information to facilitate verification and issuance of certification.

Marriage Certificate:

Complete name of the husband
Complete name of the wife
Date of marriage
Place of marriage
Complete name and address of the requesting party
Number of copies needed
Purpose of the certification

    2. Marivic, if your NSO copies are unreadable, the best option is to make a request from the local civil registrar in the municipality where your marriage is registered. If the copy you get from the LCR is clear, then have that copy endorsed again to NSO so that you will have a better clearer record there.

      If the LCR copy you get is blurred still, then ask LCR how they can reproduce a clear and legible copy of your record.

      Once the clearer legible copies have been made, these will be endorsed to NSO so that they will have better legible copies.
