NSO Marriage Certificate

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

Just want to expound on what  I found out about NSO Marriage Certificates:

Feel free to comment or add on your knowledge 🙂

A Marriage Certificate from the National Statistics Office (NSO) is a document that shows social union or a legal contract between people that creates kinship. Such a union, often formalized via a wedding ceremony, may also be called matrimony. A general definition of marriage is that it is a social contract between two individuals that unites their lives legally, economically and emotionally. It is an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually intimate and sexual, are acknowledged in a variety of ways, depending on the culture or subculture in which it is found. The state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a legal, consensual, and contractual relationship recognized and sanctioned by and dissolvable only by law

A marriage certificate is a document containing the important details of marriage, signed by the couple and by all in attendance.  Marriage occurs during the meeting for worship after approval is obtained from the meetings of which the two people are members.  Approval is based on a statement of good character and clearness from any other engagements.  The clerk usually records a copy of the marriage certificate in the meeting’s records.

Marriage certificates can be requested from the NSO where the interested party shall provide the following information to facilitate verification and issuance of certification.

Marriage Certificate

  1. Complete name of the husband
  2. Complete name of the wife
  3. Date of marriage
  4. Place of marriage
  5. Complete name and address of the requesting party
  6. Number of copies needed
  7. Purpose for the certification

Hope this is useful.

  1. master possible po ba na maging valid ang isang merriage contract kahit sinadya pong baguhin ang bday dahil ito ay menor de edad pa lamang.

    1. Kung may ceremony ng marriage, malamang kilalanin itong legal. Lalo na kung may record sa NSO.
      Saka kung nasa tamang edad na ngayon ang bata, hindi na ito illegal.
      Maliban na lang kung may magdedemanda at magrereklamo.

      Kung ganun, kailangan mo na ng leghal advice sa abogado.

  2. master my sister have a problem in her marriage contract, mali po ung year ng bday nya vs. sa birth cert nya anu po ba pwede naming gawin para maitama ito?

    1. Pwede, pumunta sa local civil registrar sa munsipyo kung saan nakarehistro ang marriage cert at ipaayos ang record doon. Pakita ang birth cert ng sister mo. May bayad yun at may endorsement fee rin para ipadala ang natamang record tungo sa NSO. Mga 2-3 months ang tagal nyan

  3. can i request for an authenticated marriage contract? i need it for applying a postal ID. thank u..
