1 correction of middle name and first name on Mon Jan 09, 2012 8:32 pm


Arresto Menor
Hello po, I would like ask po. I am planning to get my mother a passport but her first name po is Julinda but when she got her NSO its Yolinda,. Also, her middle name is Seroijos on the nso but on the marriage contract its Seojihos.

How can this be corrected? We have migrated na po to a different place. It would be impossible for my mom to go back on her birth place. Can I just process the correction on our current place?

Hello cutiechen, gusto ko lang makatulong. May experience kasi ako dun sa maling first name sa birth certificate. I am quoting here:

"The general rule is that petition shall be filed with the Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO) where the record containing the clerical error to be corrected or first name to be changed is kept.

However, in case the petitioner is a migrant within or outside the Philippines, meaning his present residence or domicile is different from where his civil registry record or records are registered, he may file the petition in the nearest (LCRO) in his area. His petition will be treated as a migrant petition."

Pero what I did was went to the place where I was registered. You also need kasi ng local (municipal) copy of your mother's birth certificate, bukod pa dun sa NSO copy.

Hope that helps. Smile

you have to file an admin petition at the local civil registrar for correction of clerical error where the birth certificate is registered.

but i believe there is a process where she can send it by courier or by mail. she should inquire at the civil registrar. if she can't go, i'm sure there's a way to call and inquire.
