Hi attorney. Good evening po.

I researched about the process of changing both first names and surnames in the Philippines. Ang hindi ko lang po alam na gusto ko sana itanong sa inyo, how much will I likely to spend for the entire process; from the attorney's fees, petition fees, to the newspaper publication fees and others?

I want to change my surname to dishonor my biological father who abandoned me. I never saw him, no communication, no support, nothing at all ever since. No problem naman po sa evidence if necessary. Pero ang masarap pa po dito, my first name is also derived from his name. So bali my entire name po ang gusto ko papalitan.

Estimation of numbers/figures lang po ang kailangan ko. May mga nagtanong na po na related sa ganito around the net, pero puro "depende" lang po ang sinasagot.

I know this case may be odd or different to you. Anyways, maraming maraming salamat po and more power.

P.S. And attorney pahabol lang po, maliit lang po ba talaga ang chances na ma grant ito even if ako na mismo na anak ang gustong magpapalit ng name? Tungkol naman po sa usaping mana, sa dinami-dami ba naman po ng kapatid ko sa labas, halos wala na akong makukuha sa kanya. Maraming salamat po ulit attorney.

Ang sagot po talaga ay depende. Kailangan mo mag consult personally sa lawyer para malaman ang fees. Ang laki ng pagkakaiba ng singil depende sa abogado.

Maliit na chances na ma grant nga yan kasi may mga kaso na hindi pinayagan na magpalit ng pangalan ang isang anak dahil sa kawalang hiyaan/ o convict na tatay dahil "it confuses paternity".
