Were you legally adopted? If not, you cannot use the surname of your adopter.
If you were legally adopted, the approval of the petition for adoption normally comes with a court order directing the Civil Registrar to make the neccessary changes in the birth record of the adopted child.

If you really want to make these changes in your birth record, you would need a lawyer because it needs a court order. But that will entail the filing of a petition in court. After having established your case, the Judge will issue a court order directing the civil Registrar concerned to make the neccessary corrections.

How about changing your other records to conform with your birth certificate? I think this is much easier because you will only be required to submit an affidavit explaining why there has been a discrepancy between your birth certificate and your other records. Here, no court petition is needed since you are not changing an entry in your birth record.

i agree it may be better to just try to change the records rather than the birth certificate.

the university of san carlos has a process for this, perhaps yours has one also. for your reference:

Hahaha! Talk about serendipity. I finished my Bachelor of Laws from the University of San Carlos and I had my school records changed to coincide with my birth record when I took the bar exams.

zbaby, you will need to first ask the schools and issuer of the docs what their process and requirements are.

is there a wrong spelling of the name on the birth certificate? it does not match the one of your parents?

you should go to the civil registrar where you birth certificate was filed and inquire regarding their process for correction of clerical error or change of first name. the law regarding this is ra 9048. good luck.

lyn, only you have parental authority because you are not married. if you have doubts about wanting him in your son's life, you can put blank on the father's name so the child will have your surname.

note though, the child will not have a middle name and will make it difficult to ask for support from the father.

Is it Ok po ba Sir na isunod ko na lang sa apilyedo ko ang bata pero ilalagay ko pa rin ung name niya sa Father's name? Kung ganun po, ano ung magiging karapatan niya sa bata? at the same time para makapagfile din po ako ng child support? or sabihin po natin, ok lng po ba na isunod ung apilyedo sa akin at the same time nakapanagalan sa knya ung Father's name? ung middle name po, pwede ba ilagay ung middle name ko nalang tulad ng ginagamit ko?

what i recommend to you is to have the father execute an affidavit of acknowledgment now. that way you have written proof that he acknowledges he is the father and you still have the flexibility of what name you will put on the birth certificate. without acknowledgment in writing, it will be difficult for you to demand support.

it is useless to put his name on the birth certificate if he doesn't sign it.

if you use your surname, there should be no middle name. some people try and get away with it. the purpose against the prohibition is that you will appear to be siblings instead of mother-child.

If ever isunod ko rin po sa apilyedo ng tatay ang bata, lalabas po ba na may mas karapatan siya sa custody ng bata?
And OK lng po ba na lastname niya ung ilagay ko kahit di po kami kasal?

no, for illegitimate children, only mother has right to parental authority.

for the child to use the father's last name, the father has to sign the birth certificate. it is allowed even if not married.

Panu po sir kung someday, aalis po aq ng bansa para mgtrabaho sa CANADA! Meron po ako mga kamag anak dun na tumutulong sa akin.Can I get my child at dun na po kame titira?

At sa mga panahon po ba na wala ako dito, may karapatan ba ang Ama ng bata na kunin siya? Pwede po ba na sa Family ko na lang ipapaubaya ang bata dahil alam ko po na nasa mabuting kamay ang anak ko?

i am not knowledgeable in canadian immigration law. you can tell your family to refuse to give the child, but if he files an actual case then he might win over your parents. but not against you if you are here.

If the signature of the father can not be secured which is indespensable unless already dead the proper recourse is not to file it right away but rather to be belatedly file the birth certificate para di magkaproblema ang bata later in life

lyn, as i said originally, it is better to have him execute an affidavit of acknowledgment now. please see my first post.

tip, you can even get a form for the birth certificate now and have it pre-signed, but he should be willing to do this.
