My friend remembers that one of the most challenging things she had to accomplish for her wedding was securing a marriage license.  She recalls having a handful of questions about it but not being able to find anything of value online.  She ended up visiting the Quezon City hall where she finally got a list of the things she needs to prepare, the fees she needs to pay, and answers to her FAQs.

Her experience inspired me to write today’s blog and I hope that this too can help other would-be brides and grooms in preparing for their wedding (at least on getting the marriage license part, haha!).  Here are the questions she had in mind then; I turned them into FAQs!

Can I apply for a marriage license in Metro Manila even if my wedding will be held in Baguio?  I work in Manila and have lived her (temporarily) for seven years.  I was born and raised in Baguio.

Yes, you can.  Actually, you can apply for a marriage license at any of the following areas:

  • Where you or your fiance reside.
  • At your or your fiance’s hometown.

Just remember that when applying for a marriage license, you need to personally appear at the city hall or municipal hall – you cannot send a representative to secure the license for you.

You can use the marriage license anywhere in the Philippines.

What are the requirements I need to prepare?

  1. Duly accomplished marriage license application form (four copies).
  2. PSA birth certificates of the bride and groom.
  3. PSA Certificate of No Marriage (CENOMAR)
  4. Certificate or proof that you have completed the required marriage counseling or seminar. There are some cities and municipalities that require the couple to attend the marriage counseling and the family planning seminar even if you have attended this before. Always check with the city hall and don’t be surprised if this is part of their requirements.
  5. Government-issued IDs such as your passport, UMID, Voter’s ID, SSS or GSIS, etc.
  6. Of course, your personal appearance.

Any other additional requirements I should know of?

Some city halls may require you to submit additional documents so it is best to have the following ready as well:

  1. Baptismal certificate
  2. Residence certificate/Tax certificate/CEDULA

Prepare photocopies of your documents as the city hall is sure to ask for copies for their records.

How do I file for a marriage license?

Once you have all the documents ready, you can file your application at the city or municipal hall of your choice.

Marriage license fees range between Php 280 to Php 350.  You can verify at the Treasurer’s office before you begin your transaction, just to be sure.

You will be issued a receipt after payment; this shall also serve as your claim stub.  Normally, a marriage license is released within 10 days after filing and payment.

Your marriage license is valid only for 120 days from the date of issue.  If you do not get married within the prescribed period, you will have to go through the entire process of securing a marriage license again, including the seminars.

If this article helped you share it with someone too!

In the Philippines, married women have the option to use their husband’s last name or retain their maiden name.  Bear in mind that when a woman decides to change her last name (in her IDs, public records, etc.) she cannot undo this unless she becomes a widow or her marriage is annulled.

Here are quick guides on how you can update your government-issued IDs and other documents with your married last name.

  1. PhilHealth records

Bring the following at any PhilHealth office when requesting to update your records:

  1. SSS

Bring the following at any SSS branch to update your last name:

  1. Pag-IBIG

Bring the following at any SSS branch to update your last name:

  1. Passport

Bring the following on your scheduled appointment at the DFA

You can order your PSA marriage certificate at www.psahelpline.ph.  They process and deliver PSA documents so you don’t have to line up at the PSA or take a leave from work.

I often receive inquiries on how to repair birth certificate errors that are committed by either the parent who filled out the child’s birth documents, or the medical staff at the hospital where the child was born, or relatives who took on the responsibility of registering the child’s birth.  Some of the errors are reparable, while some need to undergo court proceedings and the assistance of a lawyer.  Either way, an error in a child’s birth certificate is a hassle that could have been prevented if the people involved in the child’s registration paid more attention to the details.

To help parents avoid these costly mistakes, I researched online and found some helpful insights from moms at smartparenting.com.ph on how to avoid committing errors on a child’s birth certificate. They also shared unique situations when the errors are most likely to occur, like when the mom is not married to the child’s father and is not sure whether the child could use the father’s last name or not.

So I am sharing with you this helpful article I found online; I summarized it a bit to make it more readable for us.

  1. If the parents are not married and they want for the child to carry the father’s last name:

Per RA No. 9255, these are the documents that the parents need to submit upon registration of the child’s birth:

  • Affidavit of Admission of Paternity – signed by the father.
  • Private Handwritten Instrument
    • Handwritten by the father
    • Duly signed the father
    • He must expressly recognize the paternity of the child during his lifetime.
  • Affidavit to Use the Surname of the Father
    • Filled out and signed by the father
    • You may ask the hospital to provide you with a blank form of this affidavit.

The child will now be able to carry his or her father’s last name, by virtue of the affidavit that is permanently attached to his or her birth certificate.

  1. For married parents- bring a certified true copy of the following upon child’s birth registration:
  1. File your child’s Certificate of Live Birth within 30 days from the time of birth.

If you fail to file your child’s birth within this prescribed period, his birth will be considered “Late Registered” and you will be required to present additional documents.

  1. Tell your OB and other medical staff who will be attending to your delivery what last name your child will be using.
  • Medical staff will tag your baby as “Baby Roque” or “Baby Mejia”.  Make sure they know whose last name the baby will be using (yours or the father’s if you are not married).
  1. Decide on your baby’s name beforehand.
  • Write down your baby’s name and make sure the spelling is correct.
  • Inform your doctor and the medical staff of the name you wish to give your child. Give them the correct spelling.
  1. Do not fill out forms when you are too tired from the delivery or still sleepy from anesthesia.

This is when mistakes usually happen.  Instead, have your partner or husband accomplish the forms, or your parents if they are around.  Just the same, make sure you have all important information listed down already before going into labor to avoid typo errors and oversights.

The DFA has recently announced that PSA birth certificates are no longer required when renewing your old passport.  While this is true, there are still special cases when you will still be asked to submit a copy of your birth certificate.

We summarized the list from DFA and are sharing it in today’s blog, for your quick reference:

  1. First-time passport applications.

One of the core requirements for FIRST-TIME passport applicants is an original copy of his or her PSA-authenticated Birth Certificate on Security Paper.  If you are a married female and you wish to use your husband’s last name in your passport, you also need to bring a copy of your PSA-authenticated Marriage Certificate.

  1. Lost or mutilated passports.
  1. Lost and VALID ePassport
  2. Lost and EXPIRED ePassport
  3. Mutilated Passport

These cases are treated as new passport application.  You need to bring a copy of your PSA birth certificate IF YOU COULD NOT PRODUCE A PHOTOCOPY OF YOUR LAST ISSUED PASSPORT.  But if you have a photocopy of your passport, you no longer need to bring your birth certificate.

  1. Applicants in the DFA watchlist.

This was included in the Bulletin released by the DFA in their website last January 15, 2019.

A person under the DFA watchlist will still be required to present a copy of his PSA birth certificate for reasons reserved to the agency.

  1. Renewal of old brown and green passports bearing no complete middle name.

This is a rare occurrence but it still happens to some passport holders.  If the DFA finds that your middle name may be incomplete, misspelled, or missing, you will be required to submit a copy of your PSA birth certificate to serve as a reference of your correct middle name.

  1. Renewals requiring changes in personal information.

Any change in your personal information that you wish to be applied upon the renewal of your passports, such as your last name or middle name, will have to be supported by a copy of your PSA birth certificate or marriage certificate.

The list was lifted from the Department of Foreign Affairs’ website and Facebook page.

Once you have chosen the registration center where you wish to apply for your National ID, you will want to know the process that you will have to go through to get the ID.  Dahil advance akong mag isip, I’m sharing the process now, as lifted from the IRR of the Philippine Identification System Act.

Registration Process

The applicant shall register personally at any designated registration center by submitting a duly accomplished PhilSys Registration Form (Form No. 1) and presentation of any supporting documents as stated in Section 8.C of this IRR.

The PSA shall ensure that entries provided in the PhilSys Registration Form are consistent with the documentary requirements presented.  In the event of discrepancies other than the address, the data reflected on the presented documentary requirements shall prevail.

If there are no discrepancies, the biometric information (front-facing photograph, fingerprints, and iris scan) shall be captured except for applicants below five (5) years of age, in which case, their demographic information and front-facing photograph shall be sufficient.

If the biometric and demographic information of the applicant are found to be unique, a PhilSys Number (PSN) will be generated for the applicant.  Otherwise, further verification shall be conducted by the PSA.  In the event that the applicant cannot be issued a PSN, he or she will be notified accordingly.

Registration in the PhilSys is deemed successful and complete upon confirmation of registration by the PSA and the issuance of the PSN.  Once successfully registered, the person shall be issued a PhilID in a manner to be prescribed by the PSA.
