Yes it should be your mother's maiden name, from PSA :

CENOMAR (Certificate of No Marriage)

  1. Complete name of the person
  2. Complete name of the father
  3. Complete maiden name of the mother
  4. Date of birth
  5. Place of birth
  6. Complete name and address of the requesting party
  7. Number of copies needed
  8. Purpose of the certification

https://psa.gov.ph/civilregistration/requesting-civil-registry-document/cenomar

My suggestion - if you do not have the new CENOMAR before the interview, bring what you have, if the CO during the interview wants a new one they will issue a 221g (usually is emailed to you) to request the new CENOMAR, simply print out a copy of the 221g and take it to PSA, they will send the CENOMAR you recently requested to the embassy, nothing to stress about, everything will be fine. :)

Being you have the CENOMAR ordered already, IF the consulate officer requests another CENOMAR, once the embassy has it.. maybe it will add another week of waiting... nothing to get concerned about.

Try not to stress too much. Go to your interview. Your 221g should set you back only a few weeks. Then you can packing your bags.

Hi I've got the same situation here there was a double entry of my fathers family name and they use my mother's married name instead of maiden name. I was so sure that I made it correctly but this is what happen. My interview would be on Oct. 26 and maybe I still have time. A bit nervous now. Huhu ?.

order your cenomar online. it's worth it. it took 3 business days for me to get it after payment is posted. It's more expensive but I don't have to make 2 trips to PSA, saving me transpo/gas/, snacks and possible shopping.

The lady selling snacks outside of the PSA office should be able to get your CENOMAR in one day. Her snacks may cost around Php200...

How about my problem guys please enlighten me.

I born illegitimate( no fathers name on birth cer) but I followed my mothers surname as mine and her middle name as my middle name ( in all my documents) until I apply for a Philippine passport and the dfa took out my middle name. In my i129f application other forms I followed my passport and don't put my middle initial in there.

Now I'm worried for my interview since my passport doesn't have my middle initial and all my documents has. But I get two nib clearance with my two name and also two for my cenomar. Sure I can't in my birth YOU THINK THIS CAUSE ME PROBLEM DURING MY INTERVIEW??

No easy answer for what the embassy will do. You are not the first with this issue, most have no problem. Worse case you will have to get a corrected birth certificate.

Like Sagot states can't say but don't bring up this issue in front of the CO. Wait for them to ask you. Then answer honestly. You may slide through with no issues as they may not notice the absence of your information.

Whatever you decide to do best thing it get the process moving to correct the errors on your BC. Doing so you get a jump on the repair before USEM may ask for it and you never know what issues you may have with other paperwork after you're in the US.

We are in NVC stage right now I don't think so I can't still correct the errors since it takes 6 months or a year.

But I need to fill up ds160 right and I'm thinking to put my other name into " other names used" what do u think? If I do that sure they will notice it. But I'm thinking maybe it's the best thing to do for them not to think that I never had intention on hiding it since I didn't able to write it in the uscis application.

Follow the name used in your passport

As for correcting your BC:

The city or municipal civil registrar has the authority under Republic Act (R.A.) No. 10172 to change or correct clerical or typographical errors and change of first name or nickname, the day and month in the date of birth or sex of a person where it is patently clear that there was a clerical or typographical error or mistake in the entry.

As stated under Section 2 of R.A No. 10172, clerical or typographical error refers to a mistake committed in the performance of clerical work in writing, copying, transcribing or typing an entry in the civil register that is harmless and innocuous, such as misspelled name or misspelled place of birth, mistake in the entry of day and month in the date of birth or the sex of the person or the like, which is visible to the eyes or obvious to the understanding, and can be corrected or changed only by reference to other existing record or records: Provided, however, that no correction must involve the change of nationality, age or status of the petitioner.

Process may be different for your city: http://manila.gov.ph/services/civil-registry/
