No Birth record found in NSO

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Vjourney's,

I have a question for my father. I am preparing to file for an immigrant visa for my father, but he does not have a Birth certificate. The municipality where he was born was burned down. Now, He went to the NSO to get a copy of his BC and got a NO RECORD FOUND result. He used that to get a passport. He has a passport for atleast 8 years now. Now my question is, I am filing for immigrant visa for him but he does not have a BC. How will I prove that he really is my father? What option can we do? and how long will it take to process... Thanks for all the response!

Well, to establish father-child relationship, what's initially needed is a copy of YOUR birth certificate along with the i130, not your dad's.

Can't he do a late registration instead? His NSO BC won't be required until the NVC stage (5months or more down the line) so he still has time to get it done.

Hello fellow Vjourney's,

I have a question for my father. I am preparing to file for an immigrant visa for my father, but he does not have a Birth certificate. The municipality where he was born was burned down. Now, He went to the NSO to get a copy of his BC and got a NO RECORD FOUND result. He used that to get a passport. He has a passport for atleast 8 years now.

He should start with his local civil registrar if one is available. They will know what to do.

I found the following on DOS website Philippines Reciprocity Schedule.

A certified copy of a birth registration (less preferred) may be obtained from the local civil registrar at the place of birth. Local Civil Registrar records are often incomplete and it is often necessary to augment local birth certificates with baptismal certificates. "Affidavits from two disinterested persons" are generally considered unreliable but may be useful in cases where pre-war records are not locatable.

Frequently, certificates for births occurring since 1946 may also be obtained from the National Census and Statistics Office (NCSO), at the NSO East Ave, Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines. Certificates of birth before 1946 are maintained at the National Archives Division at T.M. Kalaw St., Ermita, Manila. Issuance of a birth certificate takes approximately five working days, for which there may be a fee, plus an additional fee if issuance is to take place within 24 hours, or if the document is to be printed on special security paper.

He already went through that. He does not have a record at the local civil registrar nor the NSO. He got a no record found when he tried to get one. The municipality of his birth place was burned down.

I read your post and I understood what you said. Let's make this simple. Did he ask the LCR what to do? You didn't say how old he is and since you didn't I thought I would HELP you with some additional information. If you can't use my suggestions, then it would have been better to say nothing then trying to school me on where I went wrong. Seeing you know so much i'll let you figure out what do.

I believe there is.

Well, that's mondo cool then. With an attestation process, it's then possible to get a birth certificate or record of birth issued. Yay !

just get late registration in your local civil registrar of your father birth certificate then let civil registrar officer forward this to NSO of as soon as possible you only pay them for payment in LBC express delivery, take the LBC receipt and forward letter from civil registrar then follow up it in NSO

Thank you so much Apple21,.

I have been hearing people saying that I need to submit my father's BC too, that is why I am really bothered with it.

Thanks so much again and Gob bless you!

Thank you. I will do that. I just found out that his BC won't be needed until NVC stage so I'm much happier now. I have time to get him do the late register. Thanks a bunch for the process info :)

No problem.

You said the municipality burned down, which one specifically? Only the LCR building or the entire munisipyo? If this is in the province, better check the capitolyo or if they built a new munisipyo go and inquire there.

I not believe that the Municipal Mayor and Government officials of their municipality not rebuild it or not put up alternate office for local civil registrar, :) it very important for every municipality in the province.

How would a new building help if all the records burned? Edited by Tahoma
