yes pwedeng palitan pero super mahaba ang process. Also prepare at least 50k to 150k para sa lawyer mo. depende din kasi ang charge niyan.

^ thanks for answering. I think my friend wants to change his last name. He wanted to use his mother's maiden name. Yun ang pagkakasabi nya sa akin. How long? Will it take a year or two? My mom din kasi had a prob with her name, iba yung sa birth nya at baptismal. Til now di parin maayos kasi sa province daw yun gagawin.

No idea on how it would take pero I heard its a long process daw. Pero syempre its going to be worth it :)

Better din kasi since LEGAL age na ang friend mo. mas mapapadali rin ito kahit papaano.

Mas mahirap pag kids na wala pa sa Legal age. super haba ng process..

If not typo error, court case yan. Anong ayaw nya sa surname niya?

Requirements for non-judicial :

There's also a new law:

^ sa pagkakakwento nya, gusto nya gamitin ng yung middle name na maging last name. Alam ko may personal issue sya sa father nya kaya gusto nyang gawin yun. Although im convincing him na baka maresolve pa decided na sya kaya he's asking around. Whaddya mean sis naicocourt pa yun?

hindi pwede gamitin maiden name ng mother if the child is legitimate because that will convert the status of the child from legitimate to illegitimate. hindi rin pwede iadopt ng mother yung child unless the mother is annulled sa father. after annulment, pwede na iadopt ni mommy si baby. just like kris aquino wants to adopt bimby

I think NSO released a new rule for changing of surname or sex. Kung yung surname eh nakakabawas ng dignidad ng isang tao i.e Bagonggahasa, *censored*, atbp. I think mabilis na ang process nyan sa NSO.

Hi. I have a concern too. My fiance has a different name from his birth certificate than the one on his school and employment and baptismal records. Example: his name sa birth certificate is JUAN MIGUEL(Juan is his father's first name but since of complications, his mom changed it to CARLOS MIGUEL instead) so now, all his school records, employment records and even his baptismal it states CARLOS MIGUEL but on his birth certificate its JUAN MIGUEL-- He wants to continue using CARLOS MIGUEL. Pano yun? What do we have to do? tnx

Same case.
Birth Cert - Mother's Surname
Baptismal - Father's Surname
All Other Records - Changed Surname
After the legalities, birth cert got annotated with Changed Surname and was able to get a passport na.
