Parents Marriage ... no records at NSO

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I'm a newbee here at VJ and I'm so glad I found this site. I'm a USC and I want to petition my parents from the Philippines. I just find out that there's a problem on my parents marriage certificate. It's so complicated... here's the case. On my birth certificate the info on my parents marriage date was 1956 (parents got married at church) but no records found at NSO. And my parents doesn't have a copy on hand either. So, on 1989 my parents got married again (civil wedding) because for some important reason they need their marriage certificate. If I'm going to send the 1989 married certificate with my I-130. The info would not match on my birth certificate.

Can somebody help me please...!

I'll appreciate all your input...

Kind regards,

bubblesnow

Hi Bubblesnow.

Do you have a hard copy of your parents MC in 1956?

You can go to the local civil registrar on where your parents was married.

Request a copy and tell them that you want to make an NSO copy of the said MC.

They will help you with the procedure on how to obtain one.

If your parents are really married at that time, it should be there.

BTW, did they registered their wedding in 1956?

my parents had two weddings too, one civil (1973) and one church (1974). On my birth cert. it says 1974, the NSO marriage cert. that my mom got says 1973. I called NVC about this and the operator told me to just write a note about it when I submit the docs for IV package. Im still waiting for the results. :)

but if you can get an NSO certificate for the 1956 wedding then its better.

Hi Bubblesnow.

Thanks ekto for your reply!

No, I don't have a hard copy of my parents MC in 1956. My sister already went to the NSO and find no records of the said MC. My parents had a church wedding. The procedure before was different. The church Pastor was the one to submit at the church registrar then the registrar was the one to submit it at NSO. My parents recall that there was a typhoon just few days after they got married. So probably my parents MC got lost or damaged the church Pastor didn't informed my parents and he already passed away long time ago. Meaning their wedding in 1956 never got registered.

Hi andresbonifacio,

Thanks for your reply!

My sister told me that only the 1989 of our parents wedding had a record at the NSO. And the info on my BC was my parents wedding in 1956. The NSO officer told my sister that if we want to registered the 1956 wedding we have to hired a lawyer and the cost is 20-30 thousands pesos or more.

I was wondering if an affidavit of marriage will work on my case. Any idea?

Good luck you are almost at the finish line!
