Sons birth certificate is wrong, listed as female

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

As my wife prepares for the final stages of her visa journey (medical and interview remaining) we have began her eldest son's paperwork for his visa. He is currently in college and our plan was for him to finish his second year then come to the States, he just turned 18. We have discovered that his birth certificate is incorrect, his gender on the birth certificate is listed as being female. We spoke to a attorney yesterday about this matter and he said it could be fixed but it'd be 50,000+ php. I don't mind paying the attorney if this is the only way to get it corrected but wondering if anybody here has experienced anything similar and could give us some advice.

Thank you.

HI,

I thought 50,000 was a little excessive too. They don't know anybody at the NSO and to complicate matters her son was born in Pandan, Antigue at home and they are now in Ormoc, Leyte. I will have her call the NSO and see if she can find out anything form them.

Thank you!!!

I think if there is something wrong with the gender, it will be more costly than just corrections on spelling of the name because the gender is not a clerical issue(they assume that whoever typed it did misspelled it), just like if there is wrong age for example. But all in all, I don' think it will cost 50k. I will give you a link so you can prepare for the steps you need to take to change it now, coz, last time I heard, change in gender may take a while since it will go to court, and they schedule cases based on 'raffle'.
