This paper certifies you to be a bona fide resident of your barangay and states your purpose of acquiring such document. Therefore, you can easily get this from your respective barangay hall given that you hand in the requirements. You will be asked to get this paper when applying for a marriage license here in the Philippines. Apart from that, this is also a requirement for attending the pre-marriage counselling seminar which my fiancé and I are attending on the 12th of this month.
What to do:
- Go to your respective barangay hall and inquire for the requirements.
What I submitted to my barangay:
= 1 photocopy of my CENOMAR
= 1 photocopy of Dohyoung’s Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage
= 1 photocopy of his passport
2. Pay 90 pesos for this certificate.
That easy, right? 😉
NOTE: The requirements and payment may vary from barangay to barangay.
This is how mine looks like:
