    :bag: I normally have the answers to most things and My Wife usually deals with those I can't
    but I need a DWP ( Pensions Form) Notorized Tomorrow and she is at Work in an all day meeting so, I have to do it alone, can anyone remember the Cost of notarizing things at the Lawyer upstairs from Immigration? or does anyone have an Idea of a Foreigner Friendly one in Town. Has to be in Town as I am without Transport.

    Cheers all for any information.

    Not sure if it can work there but in most countries a bank can notarize a document for free! How Do I Get a Document Notarized?

    You have to get a lawyer or a lawyer's assistant to notarize or do certified copies. Banks here will or cannot do it like they can in the United States. Why? Well, we all live here and there are things that we cannot explain and when we ask. They tell us it's "policy"

    There are two lawyers that will do notaries and certified copies up the stairs on the left just before you get to the immigration down town in the same hallway.

    Yes, correct, I Understand this But of Late I am hearing that since they Do not get any Business now from Immigration on Extension letters as they used to, they have Doubled their Notarial fees. That was why I ask in the OP

    Ah okay I did not know that.

    All I know is I went in there to get a certified copy of my divorce decree and they charged me 100php per page. I also had to supply my own copies which I found strange because most lawyers offices carries xerox copiers just for reasons like that. The lady that did the certification was rude about it too.

    But what I notice in the Philippines is that no one here has a standard of procedure (SOP). I had to get a notary in Alabang and it took 45 min because he made 3 copies of the paper and kept one for himself and added lines at the bottom of the original page to make it Lawyer legal then they had to record it. Took 45 min and had 3 people working on it.

    I hope that you find a good lawyer in Dumaguete from a local foreigner and stick with him. Good people are hard to come by in this country.

    Cheapest I have seen is city hall lawyers building which charged me 50p before a couple years ago while all others ranged from 200-500p yet you have to wear pants and shoes to enter *shudder*. I usually just go to the one above immigration which I think is 200p if remember last I needed a month ago.
