NOTE: I am sharing this here because I can't find the right venue online to post this. This is an unusual case that I can't find any related topics online. I want someone to use this to be a topic online as one of the possible problems on birth certificates so that other people will not go through the same problem like us. I can't find the right answers. I am looking for the right answers.

Our daughter was born in Naga City in 2002.


Me and my wife were married in 2003. Also in Naga City.


We applied for late registration of birth at LCR of Naga City in September 1, 2003 and was approved and released September 2, 2003.


They actually issued us a Birth Certificate issued by their LCR showing the legitimated name of our daughter. We thought it was OK.


We migrated to Makati City in 2007.


When our daughter enrolled in an elementary school in Makati, we are required by the school to provide NSO certified copy of birth certificate.


That's the time that we realized that there were clerical errors.


1. The typewritten name was the illegitimate name. Which is not supposed to be the case because that's the reason why we apply for late registration and legitimation at the same time.


2. Handwritten notes were inserted: The correct middle name was handwritten under (Middle); The wrong last name was enclosed in parenthesis under (Last) and the correct last name was handwritten beside the title (Last).


3. The REMARKS/ANNOTATION were also handwritten stating:




SEPT. 1, 2003 BY



APRIL 31, 2003 IN



This called the attention of the teacher but later accepted it when I showed the original NSO copy.


At Grade 6, I was called by the teacher to bring the NSO original copy because she thought it was just handwritten and might not be present in the original NSO copy but acknowledged it upon seeing the NSO original.


The real problem started this year, 2018.


When I updated my beneficiaries at SSS, the NSO copy was rejected by SSS because they insisted that the annotation mark should be printed at the side.


The school also requested for a printed annotation at the side of the birth certificate from NSO.


Our daughter is now Grade 10 and is in the process of enrolling to Senior High School to another school. We are afraid that this might be a big problem and our daughter will not be accepted in Senior High Schools.


I cannot accept the advise of almost everyone to repeat the same legitimation process again again we have undergone the process already and  our daughter in fact is already legitimated. The only problem is the absence of mechanically printed annotation and presence of handwritten annotation which they don't want to accept now.


Please help us how to solve this problem.


Thank you and Yahweh bless.
