I am now 29yo and I am planning to marry. I thought everything that happened back then was just big joke. When I requested for my CENOMAR, it appeared that I am married to the guy. Apparently, there are some information which are questionable stated on the certificate. My name was misspelled, my year of birth was incorrect and the place of marriage that was stated was in Las Pinas, where in fact it happened in Manila City Hall.

Can I have some legal advice? I can not afford for a decent lawyer. Is there anything that I can do to fix this? Thank you very much.
