Hi good day, I just want to inquire about the late registration fee. I'm going to process a late registry for my mother and she's a senior citizen and She already have the live birth and I think we need to go to NSO for processing. I am wondering how much it cost for that and how long it takes? Hope to hear a reply soon and thank you for the help. Godbless
