Good day! My registered name in NSO is Rowena Bataller Flores. My parents were not legally married but my BC was registered under my father's surname (Flores). I don't see any acknowledgement of my father in my BC, only my mother's signature which is (Norma Bataller Flores). I checked with NSO and they have no record of the marriage. After living together for two years, they separated (according to my mother).
My mother is now married bearing the name of Mrs. Norma Bataller Ilagan. Since then, I used the surname Ilagan for all my school and work records. And for some reasons, they separated and no communication since 1982. They did not legally filed separation/annullment procedure.
My problem now is I cannot get a passport since I don't have an authenticated BC with the surname Ilagan. Is it possible for my mother to adopt me using the surname Ilagan even without the consent of Mr. Ilagan? By the way, I'm 39 years old now and I gave birth to a baby boy 3 years ago. Me and my partner registered our son's middle name to Ilagan.
Please I need your advise.
thanks and regards,
