When I was applying for a permit to take the bar exams, one of the requirements which we had to submit was an NSO certified Birth Certificate.
First time ko at that time kumuha ng birth certificate sa NSO. Madali lang naman. You can order here -> https://nsohelpline.com/ or call 02-7371111.
Ang nadiscover ko lang ay… Isa akong nilalang na walang first name sa birth certificate!!!
Kumusta naman. Nasira ang pagkakilala ko sa sarili ko. Hindi pala ako si D. Hindi pala ako ang taong iniisip ko… OA lang.
Anyway, if this happens to you, you should go to the Local Civil Registry Office where your birth was recorded and check their copy of your birth certificate. Fortunately, may first name ako sa birth certificate na registered sa Local Civil Registry Office. So, what they issued is a Supplemental Report.
This will explain your incomplete or defective NSO birth certificate. And while you are in the Local Civil Registry Office, make a request that they send a copy of the Supplemental Report to the Civil Registrar-General. The Civil Registrar-General will then send a copy of the Supplemental Report to NSO. Once the NSO receives a copy of the Supplemental Report, it will be annotated on your NSO birth certificate, like this:
Warning lang, the endorsement from the Local Civil Registry Office to the Civil Registrar-General to the NSO may take time. Mejo ilang years din after ako magka-first name sa NSO birth certificate. 🙂
