Can a baptismal record be corrected in the philippines?

The baptismal certificate my daughter in the philippines has, has the wrong year on it. It has 1995 and it should be 1996. The embassy have requested a corrected one but the person at her church is refusing. Does anyone here have any experience with this? We have NSO and supporting documents to prove the year is 1996.

My wife had one alphabet wrong on her Baptismal Certificate.....She had to travel from Cebu to Bayugan, go to office at this church, in the middle of nowhere and plead for the lazy btch, to correct it.....oh yeah and the usual ''donation''

They have to do it, so if you are getting the usual fantastic customer service, i suggest she take with her a few ''relatives''

Absolute joke trying to get these clowns to fix their own screw ups!

Unless the birth was late registered a baptismal certificate should not be requested. NSO documents should be sent directly to the embassy. You might try obtaining LCR records, hospital records, elementary school enrollment forms. You could try affidavits from disinterested parties.

Here is how I fixed mine in 1992:

When we produce xxxx’s baptismal
certificate we're home.
yyy was loath to obtain it, because it would have
declared him illegitimate. His birth certificate says the same.
There was some logic involved. The word illegitimate on a
baptismal certificate is worse than the same on a birth
certificate, a concept to be understood by a female Asian
Christian. A Ms in the embassy quoted a rule about seeking
confirmation in cases of late birth registration. They want a
school record, or whatever we have.
I suggested DNA matching on xxx and yyy, and
we could exhume his father to scrape a sample from the
skeleton. A bloody school record, will we wait until he starts
school? Months ago xxx had an immigration officer write
down what was needed.
She did it all, and now there is another requirement.
Ponte, you were right. If you complain about the embassy
giving you sh**, they find a way to fling more.
‘A baptismal certificate for confirmation. Is that
what you said? And then?’
‘Two or three days and we will issue the visa


We went to see the priest in the town where yyy
was baptised. It took four hours to reach his house, and he
was out of course. He will be back tomorrow. We travelled
again the next day and he was home.
He is examining me to work out how much he can
ask. We want a baptismal certificate, and he has adopted
pressure mode. The usual Philippine BS, it could take a
few days, he will have to find the book, and we do not know
exactly what date, that will make it longer. His eyes are
alive for the dollar almighty. I should have let xxx come on
her own. Father has to go away tomorrow and it could be a
week or so before he can get around to searching.
‘Is it urgent?’
‘Not really, father.’
‘There are many others I have to help.’
‘When we have finished our business, may I donate
something for the poor?’
‘Come back in two hours.’
Joy can decide the amount, and I will give it to him.
‘How long have you known that priest?’
‘Since I was a baby.’
‘Is he always like that?’
‘What do you mean?’
‘Does he always try to get as much as possible?’
‘They all do.’
‘Is he getting into his secretary?’
‘She is his daughter.’

...

The embassy has other ideas. They are going to write
to the priest to check whether the certificate is genuine.
There is no chance of receiving an answer in a week, if they
get one at all. This is sh**. There was no mention of
checking when we were here last time. This stupid bitch has
let us waste more than a month, and she knows it. What if I
have the padre send a letter of authentication? Not
sufficient. What if I ask the bishop to do it? No good either.
Only a direct enquiry is good enough. Snotsucker.
‘What are going to do now, husband?’
‘Under control. We take the plane tomorrow and we
bring back the priest.’
Father was not free, so he sent his secretary with the
baptismal register and a letter from the bishop, authorising
her to remove it from the diocese for the purpose of
inspection by the embassy. All very official, sealed and
under escort. Father took it as an insult that a lesbian would
question his word. So did I.

‘Insert this where it fits.’
‘Doctor Logan, we didn't expect you to go to this
much trouble.’
‘I'll bet you didn't. Is there anything else I can do for
you while I am here?’
She flounces around like a forty-four gallon drum in
drag. She is safe.

Yes, it was late registered. Is there any other kind for most of the people?

But good news, my daughter remembered one of her godfathers is a helper with the church and went to see him. They got in to see the priest this time and he said theyll do it but itll take a month. No fee.

Heres hoping.

Thanks for the replies.

My wifes's NSO record had no first name, only the words " Baby XXXXX"
she had to use baptism and school records to have it altered.

Not registered at all. FUBAB by the NSO or the LCR, or both.

Dates of birth and/ot names FUBAB by the NSO or the LCR, or both.

All files including hospital, registry and so on vanished. This sometimes happens in paternity cases involving well-connected fathers - no pun intended.

I have had all of the above, plus Australia immigration getting rid of the files to cover up unlawful actions.
