birth registration without a teor
Dear ray

I am totally distressed and hope you can help me out with your inputs.My grandfathers birth is being registered at the central registry at lisbon but the process is on hold as the registrar there is demanding documents time and again from us. The process commenced almost a year ago and hasn't concluded yet.Also my present lawyer is not strong enough and is neglecting our case I feel.Do you know if a birth can be registered in lisbon with the church baptism certificate . For some reason his teor cannot be found at the archives office in panjim. Also I have got a letter from the same church in goa confirming that he is born there.All other documents required for birth registration are submitted including his indian passport which clearly states he was born in goa in 1919.Can you advise on this and do you know a really good lawyer who can help conclude this case

Kind Regards

Do you think the CRC will not undertake the birth registration without the middle name in the passport? I thought the primary document is the Registo de Nascimento.

If i do the affidavit. Does the CRC Lisbon accept these affidavits?

Yes, they accept it , but depends on the case officer if they accept it or not, in most cases it goes through but in some extreme case it might get refused...

There are only two ways to go about it one is get it changed if your not successful in doing that make an affidavit!

Well ask your lawyer of any confirmation that the birth has been registered they would have sent a copy to your agent for sure! Ask him for the confirmation once received only then proceed.

Birth registration
Hi Ray,

My father's current passport has his correct FIRST name and SURNAME but does not have his MIDDLE name, which is stated on his Registo De Nascimento, Registo de Casamento, his original Baptism certificate and his residency certificate.

Will the absence of his middle name in his passport be an issue in registering his birth with CRC in Lisbon? as all the other details conform.

Ray..doing a fantastic job..It will be nice if you can answer my query...My consultant claims that the first birth process registration is already done and wants to move forward as asking for second process registration marriage fees..Can one confirm the same online as he has not yet sent me the certificate ?? Any other alternative to find out apart from the assento de nascimento which he claims will send after 3 weeks ??
Thankyou in advance....

Contact Thomas, he is based in Goa he will guide you through, his number is as follows: 7769961978.

Birth registration takes not more than 6 weeks if you mother is already registered. You can file for your registration again, but do contact Thomas in regards to the name goof ups!

Good Luck!

Raj Bhai, if you already know then why would you ask? I told you try you best to correct it, I have known in some cases people have got names changed, if the persons name is correct on the death certificate you can get it changed, on the passport even if the person is dead. So, if you dont want all that trouble make an affidavit, but there are chances the file will get stuck now days there are quite strict about the name issues.
