The Quezon City Hall Series: How to File an Affidavit for Clerical Error and Change of First Name

A most common issue encountered by Filipinos with their birth certificates are misspelled first, middle, or last names.  These can go from just a single misplaced letter to an entire unknown name that somehow made it to the person’s birth certificate by mistake.  If you need to have your name corrected or changed, you may do so at the city or municipality where your birth was registered.

Here is the list of requirements and fees when filing for an affidavit for clerical error and change of first name at the Quezon City Hall.  This is also otherwise known as Republic Act 9048.

Requirements for Clerical or Typographical Error:

  1. Certified true machine copy of the Certificate sought to be corrected.  Make three copies.
  2. Documents showing the correct entry/entries upon which the correction shall be based such as Baptismal Certificate, Voter’s ID, School Records, GSIS records, SSS records, medical records, business records.
  3. Other relevant documents as the Registrar may require.
  4. Filing Fee: PHP1,000 and additional service fee for Migrant Petitioner of PHP500.00.

Requirements for Change of First Name/Nickname:

  1. Certified true machine copy of the Certificate sought to be corrected.  Make three copies.
  2. Clearance from the following authorities (these are MANDATORY):
    • Clearance from Employer or Certification that the applicant has no pending case with the company (if employed).
    • Affidavit of No Employment (if the applicant is not employed).
    • NBI or PNP Clearance
    • Documents showing the correct entry/entries upon which the correction shall be based, such as: Baptismal Certificate, Voter’s ID, School records, GSIS records, SSS records, medical records, business records.
    • Other relevant documents as the Registrar may require.
  3. Filing fee: PHP3,000.00 and additional service fee for Migrant Petitioner of PHP1,000.00.

Applicants must proceed to the Civil Registry Department for further instructions.

  1. Good day! Ask ko lang po paano kung yung surname ko is gusto kong palitan. Like for example is yung surname ko is sa father ko and ang gusto kong mangyari is tanggalin yun and gawin kong apelido lang yung sa mother ko. Pwede po ba ito? Kase ganon yung sa brother ko, bali ako na lang di pa napapalitan ng apelido.

    1. Hi Christine,

      Pwede naman pero kailangan itong dumaan sa court proceeding, lalo na kung legitimate child ka at dapat talaga na apelido ng father mo ang gamit.

      Mag inquire ka sa isang family lawyer kung papano ang pinaka mabilis na proseso para magawa ito at kung magkano ang magagastos.
