If you are filing for a migrant petition, it will reach Php 1500. The civil registrar will asked for a document such as marriage license, medical and baptismal certificate, and voter’s registration. Orcilla then revealed that the estimated process of amendment will took almost 3 months. It’s because the local office of civil registration will send the petition and other legal papers to PSA for them to approve. They will then return it to the civil registrar of the local office to validate and prepare the certificate of finality.
