From Male to Female, Female to Male

Image

 

(Picture, thanks to Mastercitizen blog)

Did you check your birth certificate recently and found out that it is marked female, but you are male? 

If this is your problem, this kind of correction used to require a court proceeding in the presence of a judge and needed the services of a lawyer.

Not anymore…

Thanks to Republic Act No. 10172, a correction of the entry on sex/gender can be filed in the local civil registrar where you were born.

As part of the requirements, you need to present a medical certificate from a government doctor that states you did not undergo any sex change or transplant. 

The petition needs to be published in a newspaper of general circulation. According to the IRR, the owner of the document shall personally file the petition before the local civil registrar. The filing fee for this petition is P3000. 

For more details on this procedure, you may call our office to set an appointment with one of our birth certificate specialists at 7051265 and 7051277.

    bakit po sa local civil registrar namin, sa paniqui tarlac, 8 thousand singil sa pg file ng change of gender?

    • Hi Chester,

      Please request from your LCR a breakdown of expenses. The law prescribes a filing fee of PHP 3,000.00 for administrative correction of gender. This said, our local civil registrar’s have a wide berth of discretion to impose such fees as they may deem fit, subject also to the ordinances which the local government might pass. Paki-tanong na lang kung kasama na sa PHP 8,000.00 yung publication. Kailangan mo din ng medical certification of gender.

      Salamat,

      Verified Team.

        Hi,
        The civil register didn’t give us the list of newspaper. We were just told to publish it on a “national newspaper”.

        Btw, do you provide paid services for correction such as Gender?

      • Yes please call our office numbers so we can explain the service in detail. 7051265/7051277. Thank you.

    My sister died a month ago and upon securing her birth cert, there was no record in NSO. It was found out that her name was mispelled and the date of birth was wrong as well as her gender. Can this be corrected through the local civil registrar?
