HOW TO APPLY FOR LATE REGISTRATION of BIRTHTuesday, March 05, 2013
War came suddenly to the Philippines on Dec. 8, 1941(Dec. 7 US TIME). My mother was born November 9, 1941. So by that time my Grandparents did not think of registering my mother because of the war going on. But my mom was baptized at the San Pedro Cathedral, that is her only proof of her extension.
I went to Sangguniang Panglungsod to get information how to late registered my mother's birth. They give me a small paper stating all the requirements:
- CEDULA or Community Tax Certificate
- Certificate of Late Registration from your Barangay
- Barangay Clearance
- Marriage Certificate
- Baptismal Certificate
- Negative Certification from NSO
- Affidavit of Two Disinterested persons who might witnessed or known the birth of the child
I accompanied my mother to get all her requirements since my mom is already 71 years old.
First we get this:
We have problems with her name, her baptismal only have LORETO GONZALES. Since she is using two names on her other certificates, Ma. Loreto and Maria Loreto, she is asked to use only one to reflect to her new baptismal certificate according to church in-charge.
So she chooses MARIA LORETO GONZALES indicated on her new baptismal certificate. We pay PHp150 and waited for 1 month processing.
I get a copy of the AFFIDAVIT OF TWO DISINTERESTED PERSONS from DOCSTOC. I just change some of its statement applying for my mom case. Have it signed by our two neighbors who knows my mom. And we went to Sangguniang Panglungsod to have it notarized.
The next day, we went to NATIONAL STATISTICS to get a copy of my mom NEGATIVE CERTIFICATION of her registration. We pay PHp140.
Then they give us a CLAIM STUB.
REGISTRATION of BIRTH.
