I would like to ask if it is possible to fix a problem with my present birth certificate.
I recently applied from NSO(East Ave. Quezon City) a copy of my birth certificate and upon receiving it I went to SSS and used it to apply for my SSS number. The people there noticed and ask me why was the name of my mother left blank in the Birth Certificate. I was surprised as well and called my mother to ask. She had a photocopy of my birth certificate from 1990 which was used during my High School days. She told me her name was written on it and everything should be complete. When I went home and compared it, it seems that a lot of things were different like the signature of my father is different in alignment, some words were missing like mother's religion etc. I assume NSO did something to my original birth certificate like using restoration software if it had been damage though no one had informed me.
The problem is that I'll be applying for a passport 4 days from now, I am wondering if it is just possible to bring the 1990 copy of my Birth Certificate to NSO and just show them the discrepancies and at the least put the name of my mother back in its place in just one day so that I won't have any problems in DFA.
P.S. 1990 Birth Certificate is a photocopy of the original with Blue certified stamp which I had submitted to my school a long time ago.
All of the Data written in both birth certificates are of my father's handwriting from my name down to the last data it was not typewritten.
Any insights will be appreciated thank you for the help
