A child’s birth must be registered at the city or municipal hall of the child’s birthplace within 30 days from the date of birth. If parents fail to submit the necessary documents for registration, the child will not be issued a birth certificate until they file for a late registration.
Here are the documentary requirements when filing for late birth registration at the Quezon City Hall. These are classified according the child’s birth right.
A. For Legitimate Children:
- Original copy of the Baptismal Certificate
- Certified True Copy of Marriage Contract
B. For Illegitimate Children:
- Original copy of Baptismal Certificate
- Joint Affidavit of two (2) disinterested persons
C. Acknowledgment through Documents (if father or mother or both parents are deceased):
- Report Card
- Title of House and Lot
- Certified True Copy of Death Certificate
Proceed to Counter 13 with the documents and wait for further instructions from the clerk. A fee of PHP150 for late filing must be paid at the cashier. You will also be informed when you may expect for the child’s birth certificate to be released for endorsement to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) office.
Once certified by the PSA, you may request for a copy at any PSA branch. Succeeding requests may already be done online via www.psahelpline.ph or by calling 02-737-1111 and have the birth certificate delivered to you.
