Petition for NSO to remove the terms Baby Boy or Baby Girl via Supplemental Report
It has been a clerical practice for those who are filling up the birth certificate to place those prefix "Baby Boy" and "Baby Girl" as a prefix to the First Name especially those born 1992 and earlier. This MUST NOT require citizens to file a court petition to change name when the name succeeding these prefixes are the ones legally used. This is simply and clearly a clerical error which can easily be corrected by the Local Civil Registrar, Municipal Civil Registrar or Consul General by letting the person covered by such circumstance to accomplish a Supplemental Report and NOT go through court proceeding requiring citizens to file a Petition to Change First Name which is both absurd and costly. Such clerical practice existed and may still be existing up to this point in time and should not punish their citizens to go through a tedious process such as a of removing the terms baby boy or baby girl preceding the name of a person which is not misspelled and used on various legal documents on their Birth Certificate. This petition is for the Senate or House of Representatives to include this or amend the recently approved Republic Act 10172.
