Solemnizing officers urged to get license
by Imelda L. Buyuccan

The Philippine Statistics Authority Benguet Provincial Office is reminding solemnizing officers from different churches to acquire a license.

Under Administrative Order 1, s. 2007, PSA is tasked to implement the rules and regulations governing the procedures in the Registration of the Authority to Solemnize Marriage of Solemnizing Officers with the Civil Registrar General.

Persons who are required to apply for licenses are bishops, heads/founders of religious or religious sect, priests, imams, tribal heads/leaders/chieftains and other religious ministers or pastors.

The Certificate of Registration of Authority to Solemnize Marriage is valid for three from date of effectivity. It must be before the date of expiration, which is every December 31.

Jurisdiction of the solemnizing officer depends on the application form and appointment of the endorsing officer who must be the head of jurisdiction.

Cancellation of the Certificate of Registration of Authority to Solemnize Marriage may emanate from the following: request received from the bishop or head of the religious sect; request received from the solemnizing officer himself; and complaint or report against the solemnizing officer due to violations of laws, rules and regulations.

The the certificate will be issued at the PSA provincial office where they filed their application.

The concerned provincial office will advise the applicant on the date of the certificate’s release, which would not t take a month if all requirements are complied with.

Solemnizing officers who do not yet have Certificate of Registration of Authority to Solemnize Marriage license or those whose licenses expired last Dec. 31, 2016, may get application forms and requirements at any PSA provincial office where their church’s appointment is situated.

Article 7 of the Family Code of the Philippines provides that among those who may solemnize marriage are priest, rabbi, imam, or minister of any church or religious sect duly authorized by his church or religious sect and registered with the Civil Registrar General, acting within the limits of the written authority granted him by his church, or religious sect and provided that at least one of the contracting parties to the marriage belongs to the solemnizing officer’s church or religious sect.
