Bringing child to USA but need to apply for passport..

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I need some much needed help. My now wife is now here in the usa and we are getting close to filing the paperwork for her son/my stepson who is 6. She has a pending AOS but when I called the Philippines embassy in Washington DC they said I can still file for the child as long as his name was on the petition when I filed for my fiancé at that time and its within 1 year and a visa will be waiting for the child. Now my question is does anyone know how we can get a first time child passport when my wife is in the usa and the child is in the Phil. I know one of the options is for my wife to fly to the phil and process the paperwork but obviously that is the last resort. I also know that you can get a passport in D.C. but the child has to be present and that's not a option. I know this isn't the first time this has happened to someone. I know there are plenty of Filipinas that come to the usa first and the kids follow later but the kids don't have their passport at that time. So anyone one who has experience this that has a solution or can point me in the right direction that would be great.
