109. The registrar of civil status prepares an act of civil status by signing the declaration he receives, or by drawing it up himself in accordance with the judgment or other act he receives. Where necessary to obtain the information required to draw up the act of civil status, the registrar makes a summary investigation.
He dates the declaration, assigns a registration number to it and inserts it in the register of civil status. The declaration thereupon constitutes an act of civil status.
