I’m so ef’ing pissed off right now I’m ready to strangle a few ignorant Filipinos.
I got an American guy in Manila I found online that will submit the paperwork with the U.S. embassy for a DCF visa for my wife. I’ve got true original copies coming from the U.S. of previous divorces and I also need true originals of my wife’s birth certificate NSO’s. This is where it becomes stupid. Back somewhere in my wife’s history a typhoon destroyed vital records and people in the area needed to resubmit there information for vital statistics records. That much being said, my father in law is as dumb as a box of rocks. It may be that the day he went to report the birth records of his kids he was intoxicated. My wife has two different Birth certificates in the data base.
When she applied for overseas employment in her young 20’s it was at that time she discovered the error of Date of Birth that was on file. (basically what was on file put her age at 11 months older than her actual age) To correct this she had to get documentation from the municipality and show these documents to the NSO in Manila to get her corrected Date of Birth into the system. Now for me logic would have it to remove the incorrect certificate from the system. But no! It’s still there.
Two weeks ago we ordered copies of our marriage license and two more copies of the birth certificate. To avoid any confusion I sent a pristine copy of the correct birth certificate needed with a note saying this is what we need, also explaining we are aware of the other incorrect document still in the system and don’t make the mistake of sending that one.
Well true to form my wife just returned from the municipality with two copies of the wrong document.
I’ve had it with inept idiots.
