AMENDED

PETITION

The minor PETITIONER, represent by his mother, through the


undersigned counsel, unto this Honorable Court, most
deferentially states and asserts, that:
THE PARTIES

1.

The petitioner is a minor, 12 years of age, Filipino Citizen,


and is represented by his biological and illegitimate
mother. Both of them are residents of 8-D Private Road,
Magsaysay Avenue, Baguio City, where they may be
served with summons and other judicial processes of this
Honorable Court;

2.

The public respondents, LOCAL CIVIL


REGISTRAR
OF
BAGUIO CITY, with address at Baguio City Hall, City Hall
Drive, Baguio City, and the CIVIL REGISTRAR GENERAL,
PHILIPPINE STATISTICS AUTHORITY with address at East
Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City are government agencies
empowered to record births, marriages and deaths; and
may be served with judicial processes of this Honorable
Court at their respective aforestated addresses;

3.

The public respondent REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES


represented by Office of the Solicitor General is
empowered to represent the state with office addresses at
134 Amorsolo St., Legaspi Village, Makati City, where it
may be served with summons, a copy of the petition and
other judicial processes of this Honorable Court;

4.

Private respondent, DOMINGO LLOYD MARTINEZ, is the name


appearing as father of the minor, JONGGO LLOYD TATUM,
a.k.a., JONGGO LLOYD TATUM MARTINEZ, in the Certificate
of Live Birth with registration no. 2003-112, and with
address at Roman Ayson Road, 12 Sixto Gaerlan St.,
Baguio City, where he may be served with judicial
processes of this Honorable Court;
CAUSE OF ACTION

5.

For the guidance of this Honorable Court, the material facts


surrounding this case are as follows:

6.

The petitioner is the minor JONGGO LLOYD TATUM, a.k.a.,


JONGGO LLOYD TATUM MARTINEZ (Herein after referred to
as JONGGO LLOYD), represented by his biological and
illegitimate mother DIVINA MUNSAYAC TATUM (Herein after
referred to as DIVINA).
Attached hereto is the
Certificate of Live Birth of JONGGO LLOYD, with
Registry Number 2004-112, marked as Annex A to
form an integral part hereof;;

7.

Both JONGGO LLOYD and DIVINA have been residents of the


City of Baguio for the past 3 years. Moreover, both have
been residents of 8-D Private Road, Magsaysay Avenue,
Baguio City since the time of their birth.
Attached
hereto are the Certificates of Barangay Residency
of JONGGO LLOYD and DIVINA, marked as Annexes
B and C respectively, to form an integral part
hereof;

8.

Neither JONGGO LLOYD nor DIVINA know, and cannot


determine, the true illegitimate father of the former,
because at the time when DIVINA conceived her one and
only child JONGGO LLOYD, she had sexual relationships
with different men;

9.

DIVINA gave birth to JONGGO LLOYD in their residence,


assisted by her late mother who was known as a local
midwife (Hilot);

10. When JONGGO LLOYD was one (1) year old, he was brought
to visit private respondent DOMINGO LLOYD MARTINEZs
(Hereinafter referred to as DOMINGO) residence for a visit.
DOMINGO is the ex-lover of DIVINA, but both remain to be
good friends. DIVINA agreed to leave her child under
DOMINGOs care for that day, as she needed to attend to
something. However, without her knowledge and consent,
JONGGO LLOYD was registered by DOMINGO before the
Local Civil Registry of Baguio City.
DOMINGO made
himself the informant and held himself as the father of
JONGGO LLOYD, causing erroneous entries in the latters
certificate of live birth, which is now the subject of this
petition;
11. In fact, in all merits of verity, DIVINA did not sign the
certificate of live birth. It was DOMINGO who signed the
certificate of live birth without the knowledge and consent
of DIVINA;
12. JONGGO LLOYD has always been known by the public as
using the surname TATUM, which is the surname of his
mother. In fact, DIVINA enrolled her son in school as
JONGGO LLOYD TATUM; and in records of the child, the
name reflected is JONGGO LLOYD TATUM and not JONGGO
LLOYD TATUM MARTINEZ. Attached hereto are the
school records of JONGGO LLOYD TATUM, marked as
Annexes D and E to form integral parts hereof;

13. Subsequently, DIVINA was about to cause the registration of


her sons birth with the Local Civil Registrar, but did not do
so as she found out from DOMINGO that her son has
already been registered beforehand;
14. To the utter surprise of DIVINA, she found errors and
inaccuracies in the Certificate of Live Birth in the records
of the National Statistics Office showing erroneous entries,
to wit:

15. The erroneous entries in the Certificate of Live Birth were


brought about by the fallacious assumption that DOMINGO
is the father of the minor, JONGGO LLOYD, when in truth
and in fact, the father is unknown and that no marriage
between DIVINA and DOMINGO ever took place.
Moreover, DIVINA remains to be unmarried up until now.
Attached hereto is a copy of the Certificate of No
Record of Marriage, marked as Annex F to form
an integral part hereof;
16. The erroneous entries in the Certificate of Live Birth with
Registry No. 2004-112 were brought about by honest
mistake, miscommunication, misunderstanding
and
inadvertence, which are neither intended to mislead nor
to confuse the public;
17. In order to correctly settle the records of birth of JONGGO
LLOYD TATUM, and to avoid any confusion and
misrepresentation to the public, it is necessary that the
erroneous entry appearing in the Certificate of Live
Birth with Registry No. 2004-112 be corrected.

PRAYER
WHEREFORE, it is most respectfully prayed for, that after
due notice, publication and hearing, judgment be rendered as
follows, to wit:
1. Ordering the Local Civil Registrar of Baguio City and the
Civil Registrar General of the Philippine Statistics Authority
to make the necessary change of surname and corrections
in the Certificate of Live Birth of JONGGO LLOYD TATUM,
a.k.a., JONGGO LLOYD TATUM MARTINEZ with Registry
