Cebu City to offer free services

10/11/2010 - NO MORE fees will be charged for late registration application, correction of entries for birth certificates and notary services transactions from the Cebu City Civil Registrar's Office.

Lawyers from the City Legal Office will work with the civil registrar to provide free notary services for documents.

Residents of mountain barangays of the north and south districts will be prioritized. Barangay captains will be informed of their barangay schedules.

The program is only available in barangays. Transactions made in the Office of the Civil Registrar will collect the same amount for the mentioned transactions.
