Filipino Visa Attorneys


Recommended Posts

JeremyMcGeorge

Hi, 

i travel to the PI on a regular basis. Last year, i fell in love and I want to bring my girl to the US. Can i do that on my own or is it best to use an attorney. I was thinking about using Filipino Visa   

Has anyone else worked with this company or known someone who has. It's somewhat expensive, but worth it since I don't know anything about immigration. 

Please advise if it's something i can just do through the embassy with ease or i need the help of an attorney and if so, if you feel Filipino Visa is reputalbe and if not who is. 

Thanks

Are you referring to the visa application? Sure you can do it yourself, I did. Takes time but if you take reasonable care there is no reason why you would need to feed a lawyer. There are enough guide

So you can do it easily enough on your own without the use of an attorney?

If you are planning on marrying her one of the fastest cheapest ways is to get a fiance visa. 6 months and she comes to the US and has 30 days to wed, (pandemic willing)

Info on the US embassy site under visas

If you want to wed, you can actually do it online in Utah.  That way you can move straight to the spouse type visa.  I did it - it was great actually - one in US, one IN PH - no problem.  Both not US citizens - no problem.

I am still getting hit up for a 'real' ceremony, but that can wait until Covid wanes.

It's actually 90 days but the embassy isn't doing visas now so I think it's on hold.

Are you saying a foreigner can marry a Filipina through that website, can you go into the details? How does that allow you to get a PSA marriage certificate in the PH?

I thought it was all done online and through the mail to the US, except for finger prints and the interview.

Of course the medical would be done there, but not at the Embassy.

The notice Dafey posted says they aren't doing routine visa services so I assume that would include interviews and biometrics so no visas to be issued now.

Decide whether you want a fiance or spousal VISA.

Make sure both your lady and you qualify.

If you have trouble filling out the application, seek a good immigration attorney in your hometown as they know the ins and outs of the VISA process.
