Correction of Error: Republic Act 9048 Marso 22, 2007

Filed under: business attire,english alphabet,for the record — nixinne @ 3:56 hapon

I just have a problem with my son’s birth certificate. There is an error with my age in my son’s birth certificate. Sa mga nakakakilala sa akin, wag nang magtanong! So i researched some stuff regarding this. I think i am just stupid with law becasue i just cannot understand this. Maybe some of you who would come across this would give me and insight on my situation. It is MY age and NOT my son’s age that i will be changing. So therefore i wouldnt be making any changes in my son’s sex, age, nationality and status.

Do i really need a judicial court order to change this?

It says here… “correction of clerical or typographical errors in any entry in civil registry documents, except corrections involving the change in sex, age, nationality and status of a person.”

Does this pertain to the owner of the birth certificate ONLY ? or does this also pertain to everybody that is involved in the birth certificate? (mother, father?)

Please HELP!

Republic Act 9048
Act Authorizing the C/MCR or Consul General
to Correct a Clerical or Typographical Error
in an Entry and/or Change of First Name
or Nickname in the Civil Register
Without Need of a Judicial


Republic Act (RA) 9048 authorizes the city or municipal civil registrar or the consul general to correct a clerical or typographical error in an entry and/or change the first name or nickname in the civil register without need of a judicial order.

RA 9048 amends Articles 376 and 412 of the Civil Code of the Philippines, which prohibit the change of name or surname of a person, or any correction or change of entry in a civil register without a judicial order.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo approved the act on 22 March 2001. With the law taking effect on 22 April 2001, the Civil Registrar-General promulgated Administrative Order No. 1 Series of 2001, which was published in the newspaper in August that year.


RA 9048 allows these corrections:

correction of clerical or typographical errors in any entry in civil registry documents, except corrections involving the change in sex, age, nationality and status of a person.
(A clerical or typographical error refers to an obvious mistake committed in clerical work, either in writing, copying, transcribing, or typing an entry in the civil register that is harmless and innocuous, such as a misspelled name or misspelled place of birth and the like, and can be corrected or changed only by reference to other existing record or records.)

change of a person’s first name in his/her civil registry document under certain grounds specified under the law through administrative process.


(1) The petitioner finds the first name or nickname to be ridiculous, tainted with dishonor or extremely difficult to write or pronounce;

(2) The new first name or nickname has been habitually and continuously used by the petitioner and he has been publicly known by that first name or nickname in the community; or,

(3) The change will avoid confusion.


Whether it is for correction of clerical or typographical error, or for change of first name, the petition may be filed by a person of legal age who must have a direct and personal interest in the correction of the error or in the change of first name in the civil register.

A person is considered of legal age when he is eighteen years old and above. Thus, a minor (less than eighteen years old) cannot by himself file a petition, either for correction of clerical or typographical error or for change of his first name.

Only the following persons are considered to have a direct and personal interest in the correction of clerical error or change of first name:

Owner of the record that contains the error to be corrected or first name to be changed

Owner’s spouse, children, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, guardian, or any other person duly authorized by law or by the owner of the document sought to be corrected.


The petition, whether it is for correction of clerical error or for a change of first name, should be accomplished properly and in the prescribed form. Section 5 of RA 9048 and Rule 8 of Administrative Order No. 1, S. 2001 require that the petition should be in the form of an affidavit, hence, it should be subscribed and sworn to before a person authorized to administer oath.

Basically, the petition must contain the following facts or information:

Merits of the petition
Competency of the petitioner
Erroneous entry to be corrected and proposed correction; first name to be changed and the proposed new first name


The petition shall not be processed unless the petitioner supports it with the required documents. The supporting documents should be authentic and genuine, otherwise, the petition shall be denied or disapproved pursuant to Rule 5.8 of Administrative Order No. 1, S. 2001. The following supporting documents are admissible as basic requirements:

Certified machine copy of the certificate containing the alleged erroneous entry or entries

Not less than 2 public or private documents upon which the correction shall be based. Examples of these documents are the following: baptismal certificate, voter’s affidavit, employment record, GSIS/SSS record, medical record, school record, business record, driver’s license, insurance, land titles, certificate of land transfer, bank passbook, NBI/police clearance, civil registry records of ascendants, and others.

Notice and Certificate of Posting

Certified machine copy of the Official Receipt of the filing fee

Other documents as may be required by the City/Municipal Civil Registrar (C/MCR)


As in the case of correction of clerical error, no petition for change of first name shall be accepted unless the petitioner submits the required supporting papers, as follows:

All the documents required of the petitioner for the correction of clerical error shall also be required of the petitioner for change of first name.

Clearance from authorities such as clearance from employer, if employed; the National Bureau of Investigation; the Philippine National Police; and other clearances as may be required by the concerned C/MCR.

Proof of Publication. An affidavit of publication from the publisher and copy of the newspaper clippings should be attached.


The C/MCR and the District/Circuit Registrar (D/CR) are authorized to collect from every petitioner the following rates of filing fees:

One thousand pesos (P1,000.00) for the correction of clerical error

Three thousand pesos (P3,000.00) for the change of first name
In the case of a petition filed with the Consul General (CG), the fees are the same for all Philippine Consulates. The fees are the following:

Fifty U.S. dollars ($50.00) for the correction of clerical or typographical error

One hundred fifty U.S. dollars ($150.00) for the change of first name
A migrant petitioner shall pay an additional service fee to the Petition Receiving Civil Registrar (PRCR).

This service fee shall accrue to the local treasury of the PRCR.

Five hundred pesos (P500.00) for correction of clerical or typographical error

One thousand pesos (P1,000.00) for change of first name


The general rule is that petition shall be filed with the Local Civil Registry Office (LCRO) where the record containing the clerical error to be corrected or first name to be changed is kept. Included in this general rule is the case of the Office of the Clerk of Shari’a Court where records of divorces, revocations of divorces, conversions to Islam are kept and where some Muslim marriages are registered.

However, in case the petitioner is a migrant within or outside the Philippines, meaning his present residence or domicile is different from where his civil registry record or records are registered, he may file the petition in the nearest LCRO in his area. His petition will be treated as a migrant petition.

ano nga ba ang tama? Marso 20, 2007

grabe ang kabagalan ng process sa immigration. inabot na ng dalawang taon ang ang pag preoseso ng application ko para mapalitan ang wrong entry nila sa green card ko. habang tinatagaln nila ang pag proseso, natatagalan din ang pag apply ko ng citizenship ko. kung tutuusin, hindi naman ako nagmamadali na maging us citizen, pinoy ako eh. kung puwede nga lang ba an hindi na, kaso may bubwit ako na umaasang magkakasama kami itong mga darating na taon. hind na siya bumabata. mag-sasampuing taon na nga eh, kaya mas kailangan na mapabilis ang pagiging citizen ko.

nag-usap kami ni mike nugn isang araw at alam niya kung gaano ako kalungkot na hindi ko nakakasama ang anak ko. nahahawa na rin yata sa akin at siguro dahil kahit paano nakapag-bonding sila nung bumisita kami ni mike as pinas last year, e, nagtanong kung ano ba ang mabilis na paraan para makuha namin si atong. sabi ko, pag naging citizen na ako, mas mabilis na ang proseso. kahit kailan hindi ko inasam na maging citizen sa pamamagitan ng kasal, lalo na kung iyon lang ang dahilan. matigas ang loob ko pagdating sa gnayan. matagal na akong kinukulit ng mommmy ko na magpakasal para lang mapadali ang pagiging citizen ko pero ako ang umaayaw at pinaka ayoko na sa akin pa manggagaling ang mga katagang “pakasal tayo para sa convenience ko”. i want it because i love him and not because of anything else. pero kung may mangyayaring maganda dahil magpapakasal kami, e di bonus.

at yun nga, tinanong niya ako, medyo nag hehesitate pa nga dahil baka daw hindi ko magustuhan ang proposition niya na sa judge na lang muna kami mag-pakasal kapag hindi pa naayos ang visa ko by this july. may dream wedding kasi kami eh. sayang, gusto ko sanang mag-elaborate kaya alng it will spoil the surprise element para sa future guests namin. anyway, na-touch naman ang beauty ko. nag-arko muna ang kilay ko sabay sabing, “are you serious?” pero sabi nga niya, sure na naman kami na kami na talaga, it was just a matter of time and money kaya kami naghihintay. hindi nga ba, gusto na rin niyang magbahay-bahayan?

sa mga nakakakilala sa akin, mayroong time na wala na akong inisip kungdi ang maging bride – nang kahit na sino. pero naiba ang motto ko. naging ayaw kong maging bride ng kahit na sino. pero it wouldnt hurt naman siguro kung para din naman sa kapakanan ng anak ko. itatapon ko na lang ba ang prinsipyo ko? puwede siguro. nakakatakot mang isipin na magiging “wife” na lang ako if ever we push through this small event. na “double” na ako at hindi “single”. grabe, matatali na talaga ako sa iisang tao. kahit pa one man woman ako, para bang it is going to restrict the world of possibilities. ayoko pa naman ng divorce.


my heartache… Marso 17, 2007

Filed under: my immortal life,tear jerker — nixinne @ 10:05 umaga

last saturday, me and mike had a fight. it was awful. that was the first time i cried within the past year and a half. but we “kind of” settled in our differences since he said afterwards that “he found the person he would want to live with.” i hate to analyze simple words of men (except for chico’s) cause they usuall are unsubstantial. it is what it but i cannot help but to think if he was just saying that so i can calm down.

Last night i had this feeling again that he does not want to be with me. i’ll spare everybody the details but it creeped up in mind until i was bursting with anger. he came to bed and told me what i wanted to hear, as if he read my thoughts…that was scary. he played the part of what i wanted him to do without me telling him.


its just one of those days… Marso 2, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,food for the thought,my immortal life — nixinne @ 1:00 hapon

i do not think its just me that does not have the “balance” in their life…

i am quite successful at work..(at least that is what i think) and my relationship with mike is great. even my realationship with my mom is great. i am working towards my credit problems, i am actually saving up some, thanks to ING Direct and the United States Treasury. i have great work relationship, i dont have any enemies that i know of. i’ve got great friends…my son is in good health and so is most of my immediate family…


my arms, neck and shoulders are still hurting, i am still far away from my son, i am sooo behind with school work and come to find out, i could not get a mortgage by myself so mike will have to shoulder this mortgage purchase by himself. i dont like that…i think i might as well just rent a house for now. repair my credit history this year and try again next year. grrr..it makes me mad! but its my fault…so i guess i do not have the right to get angry…

i just couldnt have everything that i wanted at the same time…they are scattered…its either this or that..never both…sometimes nothing at all…but i am still thankful for everything that i have…

i am so tired today, i dont feel like going to the physical therapy but i must…the breakfast party for our co-worker was cancelled since she hurt her back last wednesday…everybody is sick here nowadays…*sigh*…i want to go to sleep so bad but i have to read my books so i can have a blasted input oin my philosophy class about heraclitus, parminedes and the sophists…*sigh again*…i still have two more nights of work including tonight and tomorrow night…

i guess its just one of those days…


housing agenda Marso 1, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,my immortal life,yada yada yada — nixinne @ 1:26 umaga

we need to have our own house soon. be it rented or bought, i dont care. i just need space. i want my own room, my own place to put my stuff and my clothes. sharing a room , even with somebody that you love, isnt working for me.

with mike’s good credit and no stable salary (he just started his business with his brother 6 months ago), and my bad credit wih good, stable salary, we are hoping for a good mortgage deal. i am not sure how we are going to accomplish that. im not keeping my hopes up coz i will be the primary buyer and mike will just be the co-borrower. its a big step for both of us, financially and realtionship-wise. really big…hmmm. it isnt bad since i dotn think we will be lookign fo new partners in teh foreseeable future. hell, we cant get divorced anyway since were not married…he he he…giggity. the posotive side of not beign married is no ugly divorce proceedings.


physical therapy sessions

Filed under: english alphabet — nixinne @ 1:20 umaga

this morning was my third day in physical therapy. the first day was a bitch sinc eit hurts so much just to be moved around for diagnostic purposes. jay (the physical therapist) last monday told me that my c7 is not in place and that they are going ot try and re-align it. he moved my neck from left ot right, up and down and around. and i cringed. i almost cried after that session coz it hurts a lot. he also did some heat therapy and TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator). it felt wonderful when i was at the therapy center but after a mere hour, i was hurting!

by the next day, gail (another physical therapist) came and did my work up with me. i really dont like her coz she has this look on her face that tells me ” you better tell me is getting better or else…” she always has this kind words and seems to be smiling all the time but whenever i tell her that somethign is hurting it seems like she does not believe it. like its not supposed to do that and that she was puzzzled why i was hurting that much. i wasnt comfortable with her but i cannot refuse her either. moral obligation to my fellow workers in the medical feld , i presume. she did another session of heat therapy, soem exercises and then the TENS therapy but she placed the electrode on the lower part of my scapular region and i shocked the living shit out of my nerves in that area, to my left arm then to my left little finger. ok..so the second session didnt turn out as well.

this mornign was the third day and even though gail was still my PT, i had a better day than the 2 previous days. heat therapy, some exercises then cold therapy. no TENS today. my arm and little finger still have some paresthesia on it but at least the pain slowed down. and this is all without medications! yipeee!

i did not like the lyrica nor the lodine. my tolerance of medications is really low. i fall asleep and stay asleep fro a couple of days if i took both at the same time. jeez…

work had put me on light duty so it wasnt as bad. we shall see the next week or so…
