    • hello marie. I’ll tell you a story. Back when I was having my son’s birth certificate corrected because my year of marriage was wrong, the civil registrar noticed that my name was misspelled. I thought of letting that pass. But she said something that struck me. She said – by law, you are not your son’s mother because your name is not as stated in his birth certificate. At first I said but God and my friends know he is my son. Still, I had it corrected for my piece of mind. To do that, I went through the entire process which was more complicated then. Perhaps your case will be simpler because of the new law. Please read the comments on how to go about getting the correction done. good luck.

  7. hi, paano po ang process ng pagpapalit ng status ng bc ng anak namin kc nong ni register namin ang bc nya nong hindi p kami kasal ng tatay nya pero po ngayon kasal n kami ipapabago n namin ang satus sa bc nya na married n po ang parens nya. ano po ba gagawin namin? maraming salamat.

    • Please read the comments on this post. A similar question was asked before. Better still, go to the Civil Registrar and ask. Good luck.

  13. hi po.. gud pm. i was married last Nov 27, 2011. Our marriage certificate has clerical error in Surname.All the documents submitted spelled DE LOS REYES 3words but in our marriage certificate it is DELOS REYES 2 words. My problem is I can not process my SSS change name for my MAT1 due to that error. ano po gagawin ko? thanks. Anne De Los Reyes

    • I guess the best thing would be to have your marriage certificate corrected. SSS will follow whatever spelling is used in your NSO documents.

  14. gud pm po kasi po ang name ng mother ko na nakalagay sa birthcertificate ko ay noemi pero nung kinuha nya yung birthcertificate nya ay normita pano ko po kaya icocorect ang birthcertificate ko at magkano po ba magagastos ko kailangan po ba akong mag ayos kung san ako pinanganak?..thanks po

    • Hello Teresa. This was the same experience my son and I had. My name was misspelled in my birth certificate and Maria was spelled out, but in his birth certificate Maria was abbreviated to Ma. As your mother’s birth certificate is, I presume, correct, just bring it to the civil registrar where your birth was registered when you request for the correction of your mother’s name in your birth certificate I’m sorry I cannot remember how much it cost to have this correction made. Good luck and please update us on your case.

  15. Nandito po ako ngayon sa Saudi and as instructed pupunta ako sa Philippine Consulate dito for the affidavit of paternity. So, lahat po ng mga documents na galing abroad like the affidavit of paternity ang processing e sa LOCAL REGISTRAR MANILA? Di ba pwedeng sa lugar nalng kung saan pinanganak yung anak ko kse malayo po ang probinsya namin.

    • I am not aware that all documents should be processed in the local registrar of Manila if the father is abroad, for instance. Have you asked someone in your province to check if this could be done in the province instead? I can understand the inconvenience. I think all local registrars should be able to handle affidavits of paternity – why make a distinction if the father is based abroad, I wonder? If I am able to find out, I’ll share the information with you. Please do the same if you are able to find out anything. Good luck, Rexford.

  16. good day..pano po kaya gagawin namin ung no.of child sa brth certificate ng panganay namin nakalagay pang 2 sya eh pang 1 po sya..what po pwede namin gawin?thank you po..pease reply..sa zamboanga sya pinanganak pwede po ba un ayusin dito sa manila?

    • I think you just might have to have it done in Zamboanga. My answer is based on my experience: though I am Manila-based and have been since mid-1970, when the clerical error in my birth certificate was noted by the Manila Civil Registrar, I had to have the correction done in Negros Occidental where I was born and registered.
