Quick question for those who have been there, done that.  We are working to file our Report of Marriage (ROM) to the consulate in Los Angeles.

#2 says  to submit four (4) original duly accomplished Report of Marriage.  We filled one out, and went to the bank to get it notarized.,  I think 3 copies of the original should be good enough, but wife thinks we need to print out 3 more and take those 3 to the bank and have each one motorized individually.  Which is accepted by the Consulate?

o.k.,, I called the Consulate, (1-213-639-0980)  and the recording ( after pressing #4, then #2, ) spoke quickly so had to listen 3 times., but it said "the notarized" and 4 copies. (on line says 4 total), plus all the other things, pics of passports, divorce decrees (US spouse), death certificates, etc.. AND 4 passport style photos of each, which on line, it did not ask for that to submit by mail.  You ONLY need to get one copy (the original) notarized IF you are mailing it in.  $25 and if you want your originals returned as SASE, OR an extra $6 to mail your originals back. So there ya have it!

I printed out the instruction sheet from the consulate.  It states:

"#3:  One (1) original or certified true copy and four (4) photocopies of the Marriage Certificate or Contract (original will be returned)"

So, that is what we did, sent the original and 4 copies. along with all the other stuff (with 4 copies of each.  )

For the other documents that is correct, but for the actual form (which was your original question) it is as stated below.

 

BASIC REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Four (4) original duly-accomplished Report of Marriage Contracted Abroad form, typed or printed legibly in black or blue ink, signed by both husband and wife. Wives should indicate their maiden name as the last name. If submitting by mail, the completed forms must be notarized.

  7. One (1) original or certified true copy and four (4) photocopies of the birth certificate/s of Filipino spouse/s.
  8. Notarized affidavit explaining the reasons for delayed registration if ROM is filed more than a year after marraige
  9. Self-addressed return envelope, with appropriate stamps for express or priority mail with tracking numbers via US Postal Service, if Report of Marriage is to be mailed back. For applicants from the Caribbean Islands, pre-paid mailing envelope from DHL.
  10. Processing fee of $25.00 (non-refundable), payable in cash or money order made payable to "Embassy of the Philippines" (or "Philippine Consulate General", if application is made at one of the Philippine Consulates General in the U.S.).Personal checks and credit cards are not accepted.
  11. For applicants residing in U.S. territories or other countries within the jurisdiction of the Philippine Embassy, applicants should enclose a treasurer’s, manager’s or certified check issued by a local bank that has a corresponding bank in the U.S. (the US National Bank Association is not a correspondent bank), payable to the courier of choice, in U.S. dollars, to cover cost of mailing, and a corresponding self-addressed courier’s address label. Personal checks are not accepted.

Thank you hank.  It is a $32 lesson.  They just returned the package, so the notary won't be too thrilled but at least it's free! LOL
