Now, I'm planning to get married by November and while preparing for the needed docs, i recalled this issue. i confronted my parents and accdg to my father, he now uses ESPIRITU since that's what's in his birth cert. what happened pala was ESPIRITU talaga yung family nila but some time when he was still a kid, her mom changed their middle name to ESPRITU as she thinks it's "better". Since my grandma is long gone, they don't actually know how their name change was processed. growing up he used ESPRITU (it's in their marriage contract) but some time after my sister and i were born they saw na ESPIRITU yung nasa birth certificate nya so moving forward that's what he used (we just found out that his siblings, all girls, continue to use ESPRITU to this day). he didn't bother fixing the issue. when we asked him to help with this issue, he angrily insisted that this is our problem and that he has nothing to do with it.
How should we approach this issue? If left as is, would this be a problem for me & my sis? Our primary concern is the problems it may cause us in the long run, and if this will serve as an impediment for my upcoming wedding and any other id/loan applications. not so much on possible inheritance. so far we've had no trouble with requesting for documents. maybe it's not really checked or maybe the processors just don't notice.
Many thanks for taking the time to read my story! (Note: edited multiple times to improve flow )
