How to correct name in Philippines birth certificate

by | News

Jan. 31, 18 | 10:40 am

One of the most important document a person should possess is a birth certificate, a record that documents the details and registration of the birth of a child.

It is vital for people to have this document because it is considered as one of the primary requirements upon enrollment, job application and others. If this record bears an incorrect or misspelled name, that would entail a big problem in the future.

However, this can be corrected and fixed under the provisions of R.A. 9048, or an act “authorizing the city or municipal civil registrar or the consul general to correct a clerical or typographical error in an entry and/or change first name or nickname without need of a judicial order.”

Change of name

In order to correct a person’s first, middle, or last name in the birth certificate, a petition should be filed in the local civil registry office of the city or municipality where the birth is registered.

Requirements for the petition includes copy of birth certificate; not less than two documents like baptismal certificate, voter’s’ affidavit, employment record, driver’s license, and other private or public documents; certificate of posting and proof of publication are also required.

For changing of name, a P3,000.00 will be charged as filing fee.

Correction of typo error/wrong spelling

For wrongly spelled names on the birth certificate, same requirements and process shall be done. However the filing fee for correcting typographical error or misspelled names will only cost P1,000.00.

Filing of petitions can be done by the owner of the birth certificate, his or her spouse, children, parents, immediate relatives, guardian, and other person duly authorized by law or by the owner of the name.

For overseas Filipino workers (OFW), they can file the petition on the Philippines Embassy and the filing fee will depend on the country you’re working in.

Aside from the requirements listed above, a copy of birth certificate authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and passport are also required.

In case the petitioner had already migrated to another place within the Philippines, the petition may be filed with the civil registry office where he or she is currently residing. If born abroad, this should be filed in the Philippine Consulate where the birth was reported.

The Philippine Statistics Office reminds all petitioner to keep all valid documents handy in case the civil registrar asks for other supporting documents, and to prevent inconvenience.
