    Hi all, I am new to this forum but would like to get redirected to the right forum. I am looking for recommendations for a good not so expensive family lawyer to help woth changing surnames.

    Back story, my partner's last name does not reflect her mothers'. Also my son's middle name does not reflect hers.

    You need to go to the PSA ( Philippine Statistics Agency Previously the NSO, up By the Hypermart, they are the ones to do that but be prepared for a fairly long wait all round

    Yes we did, but was deemed not suitable for Clerical entry, rather a court order to really change the whole full name. We consulted with a lawyer friend in Cebu but he can't practice outside Cebu so we are looking for recommendations in Dumaguete.

    This I do not Understand, Only the PSA can make amendments to a Birth certificate and my Friend even if a Court demands it, It Will still be the PSA that do the Changes so, I wonder what your lawyer is on about, We have been there and done this on 2 occasions now and My friend Our lawyer is in CEBU so you maybe being led up the garden Path here

    teh psa can only make some amendments, for a complete name surname change it will require petitioning the court and getting a judge's order.

    I went through this on on my fiancee visa. First name on birth certificate didn't match name wife had went by her entire life. To get it changed required a court order and publishing the name change in a local newspaper for 3 weeks. It required a lawyer and took about a year to get done.

    One of my ex's had the same issue, didn't find out until we went to get a passport. We just gave up and she started going by her legal name for any official business. Nobody cared.
