All babies born in Quezon City must be duly registered at the Quezon City Hall within 30 days from the date of birth. If the parents fail to register the child’s birth within the prescribed period, the child’s registration will be tagged as “delayed” and further documentation and fees shall be required.
How to file the registration:
- Secure a copy of the registration form from the hospital or maternity clinic where the child was born. Usually, it is the hospital staff that accomplishes the form for the parents. If the baby was delivered by a licensed midwife, she should be able to provide a copy of the registration form as well.
- In case the hospital or the midwife are not able to provide you a copy, you may secure one at Counter 11 in the Quezon City Hall and at the office of the Philippine Statistics Authority. Parents may be required to present a copy of their marriage contract to determine the legitimacy of the child.
- For regular filing of a child’s birth (within 30 days from date of birth), proceed to Counter 31. All 16 counters for Civil Registry transactions at the Quezon City Hall are open to the public from Monday to Friday from 8:00AM to 5:00PM, no lunch breaks. They do, however, have a 15-minute break between 10:00AM to 10:15AM and from 3:00 to 3:15PM. Windows will be closed during these intervals.
