I'm not even sure if I'm in the right forum or someone has already posted something similar...I'm pretty desperate so every bit of info would help...
I've been trying to get some answer on what I can do to get my birth certificate corrected and hopefully to get a passport. I've been denied to get one due to some errors in it.
Just a quick overview
My mom went overseas 32 years ago (1981-1982), she met a japanese they lived as a couple there but were never married. She came back in the Philippines 2 years after, already pregnant at that time and give birth to me November 21, 1984.
From what my mom told me they were never married, but I've been using my father's last name since birth and it's the same last name in my nso birth certificate ( yamagi ) there is no attachment for the use of last name either
2. my birth certificate also shows a date and place of marriage which is in chiba, japan although just like what I mentioned earlier they were never never married
3. my mom's nationality and religion were japanese and buddhism. I've already filed for a petition for clerical error regarding my mom's nationality and religion, I'm not sure though on what needs to be done with the others...
Any advice will be appreciated
