Pavel, Margarit and Associates: How can you obtain the annulment, amendment or rectification of the civil status documents in Romania?

Given the fact that in practice various errors may occur when drafting the civil status documents, Pavel, Margarit and Associates Romanian Law Firm recommends contacting a specialized lawyer in Litigation, Dispute resolution and Family law in Romania who can advise you on the legal means that one may employ with the aim of obtaining the annulment, amendment or rectification of the civil status documents in Romania.

In practice, errors may frequently occur in regards to the inaccuracy of the data contained in the civil status documents, either due to the error of the public servants responsible for drafting the document, or due to the insufficiency or inconsistency of the documents on the basis of which the civil status document was drafted.

According to the applicable Romanian law, the annulment, amendment or rectification of civil status documents or any mention contained in such documents may be done only based on a final court decision.

The plaintiff may obtain the annulment, amendment or rectification of any type of civil status document, namely the birth, marriage, divorce or death certificate.

The legal claim may be submitted with the competent court by the interested person (plaintiff), by the civil status structures within S.P.C.L.E.P./ Local Community Personal Register Public Service, or by the prosecutor’s office.

Considering the non-consistent case law regarding the public authorities that are sued as defendants for the purpose of obtaining the annulment, amendment or rectification of civil status documents, Pavel, Margarit and Associates Romanian Law Firm recommends contacting a specialized lawyer in Litigation, Dispute resolution and Family law in Romania in order to provide advice in regards to this particular important aspect in such litigation and to avoid potential delays of the court procedure or even the dismissal of the legal action based on the locus standi objection.

In regards to the competent court to rule in such cases, the Romanian law provides that the interested person/plaintiff shall submit the legal claim with the court located at the domicile or headquarters of the plaintiff. In the case of Romanian citizens that reside abroad or in case of foreign citizens, the competent court shall be the 1st District Court of Bucharest.

Pavel, Margarit and Associates Romanian Law Firm recommends contacting a specialized lawyer in Litigation, Dispute resolution and Family law in Romania, who can provide legal assistance and representation before the competent courts in disputes related to the annulment, amendment or rectification of civil status documents.
