When the details of your parents’ marriage, as reflected on your birth certificate, do not coincide with the details written on their marriage certificate, your birth right or legitimacy may be placed in question.  The consequences of these types of errors may have an impact on your future transactions involving your parents such as a petition for their migration to join you in another country or when you claim your inheritance and other benefits after they have passed away.

If you have this type of error on your birth certificate, have it corrected right away.  Below are the requirements and processes when filing at the Manila City Hall.
