Philippines Birth Certificate Judicial Change

18 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am an American born and raised in New York. My girlfriend was born and raised in Bacolod City, Philippines. She has a problem with her birth certificate. Forgive me if I don't explain this 100% correctly, but this is my understanding of her situation so far. First of all, her birth certificate is a late registration. She told me page 1 of her birth certificate is OK (totally correct), but Page 2 has the wrong first name(her sister's first name) and it also has the wrong birth date, birth month, and birth year (these are also her sister's information). I want to help her fix this as soon as possible so that she can get a passport and eventually I will petition her here with a K-1 Visa and marry her. I understand she will need to make a Judicial change to her birth certificate, which takes a lot longer than an administrative or clerical change. I am trying to find her a lawyer in Bacolod city that has experience in dealing with this. Can anyone help or recommend someone to help us? I would greatly appreciate it. We have been in a long distance relationship for about a year and I really want to marry her. Any help at all would be appreciated. Thank you all.

I think the odds of a correct birth certificate in the Philippines is less than 50/50. With our 2 sons I told my wife to make sure they check it over and over before submitting. My oldest son's certificate says I am Filipino. Other than that it is correct. My second son is correct. My wife needed hers changed from male to female. They have a family friend who in the Philippines would be known as a "fixer". 2k (peso's not dollars) and a month later my wife 2 new official PSA birth certificates with the correction.

Hi RO_AH! Is there any chance this fixer of yours can help us?

RO-AH,  PLEASE maybe you can help us. My son is getting ready to immigrate his wife and her children. Several of the kids certificates need amending, for various reasons, like Mothers name used her nickname or birth order is wrong.  Can you get us a contact, more than willing to pay.  Question was it "fixed" at the government office, or the fixer fixed it, lol?

It was legally fixed in the court and with PSA. Unless they are in the same area (see above post) he would probably not be able to assist. Som minor things in the birth certificate will not cause problems. Mine with her being listed as a male obviously would.

Sorry it took so long to answer. He probably would not be able to unless you are in Bulacan.

Hi! I'm sorry to bother you, but is there any way to get this person's contact information? The only thing I want fixed is my mother's first name on my birth certificate. However, it was already submitted to the local civil registrar. I just need someone who can help me so the PSA phase will be quicker than normal. 

 

Thank you!!

Mother in Law BC showed male. That took forever to fix 

 

Father in law was missing a letter. He tried a fixer who gave home new BCs but never fixed the PSA system data. When he filed for passport it was rejected for fraudulent documents.  

 

Always fun there

Fixxors are a bad move .. most are a scam.    Facilitators (ya most call them fixxors) are what you want, someone who knows the system, knows the people and knows which palms to grease to get your documents moved to the top of the stack .. they don't get you a "new document" they make the normal process move along smoother.

This is the person that I have. He knows the system, he knows he to talk to, he knows people at PSA in Manila. I don't think he even pays anyone off.

The guy I use is a family friend of my wife and would not be able to help you if you are not close to him (Bulacan). If your moms first name is wrong on the birth certificate I doubt that would have any effect on any immigration. Even on my wife's birth certificate we fixed her sex because for obvious reasons that would probably be problematic. But we did not fix her parents bith date and both were wrong. It would have made them around 60-70 years old when my wife was born.
