Corrections or amendments of civil status records in judicial procedure

Sometimes, extracts from a civil status record (such as related to birth, marriage, death etc.) required for the process of reinstatement of the citizenship of Lithuania or its acquisition in other ways as well as in the process of issue a Residence Permit is not available or is incorrect. For example, the first name or the surname of the father or mother of the person is not specified in the Certificate of Birth of the person or the entry is made unduly, so the person cannot prove the family connections, so he (she) cannot prove that his (her) father, mother, grandmother, grandfather, great-grandmother or great-grandfather was of Lithuanian origin or a citizen of Lithuania. In such a case, the process of reinstatement of the citizenship of Lithuania or its acquisition in other ways as well as in the process of issue a Residence Permit becomes impossible until correction of such an entry.

In such a case, the person shall apply to a Civil Registry Office for correction and amendment of the record; however, the record will not be corrected, if the required evidences are absent. In such a case, the person shall apply to a court for correction and amendment of the civil status record in judicial procedure.
