In order for the correction of errors in birth certificates to be free and to facilitate its processing, the PAN deputy, Jesús Hurtado Luna, presented an initiative to reform the Civil Registry Law of the State of Jalisco so that through an administrative process “finger errors” can be amended.
“There are recurring situations in the Civil Registry offices regarding the rectification of records, due to errors in their birth registration data such as the simple error in a letter; of a number or an abbreviation like Ma. instead of María, situations that are very common”, explained the legislator.
The proposal states that Civil Registry officers can make general registrations and all rectifications, except those that affect the affiliation of the person or generate a connection of affiliation with third parties whose rights may be violated; In those cases, a trial must be held.
In the cases of modification in surnames, it establishes an annotation in the margin, of administrative rectification, which must say that it does not prejudge affiliation, nor does it generate filiation rights with respect to third parties other than those that appear in the document.
The initiative was turned over to legislative committees for their ruling and subsequent discussion.
