My fiance wants me to go to the interview but i'm not sure about it(work and vacation issues), but would they let me attend the interview for manila, and would it also increase the chances of the approval of the visa?

Yes, they will allow you to attend the interview in Manila. It does help increase the chances for approval of the visa.

Yes you can, it is a fun and for sure very interesting experience.. I did it.  Not to increase the chances for approval ... just to be there with my wife...

 

Increase the chances for approval?  Some ... but then USEM isn't that difficult IF you have everything as listed in the embassy instructions letter.

I second attending. I did for my wife and two step children. It was a fantastic experience. I'm with Hank. It may not have effect but it never hurts. Sometimes they let you stand with your fiance but sometimes they will ask you to sit down and if they need anything they'll call you up. I think just the sight give credible evidence that you truly have a loving relationship.

I went with my wife and stepson on Monday. I was able to stand there with them during the entire process. I feel like it helped since the CO only asked how we met. He didn't ask for any proof or anything, and they were approved.

DCF are fast aren't they!?

 

Great experience being at the interview..

Yes, it was pretty fast!  Would've been a lot faster if I knew we needed to send proof of bona fide relationship between my wife and her son. I thought the fact that he was her son was enough  :bonk:

Yes, we gave them the birth certificate, it was one of the required documents. But we still got the RFE. They also had pictures of the three of us.

That's strange that they would ask for additional documents when a BC, if correct, can show the relationships.  Also, I assume you presented a passport for the child, another proof. It's just strange that you go a RFE.  Have you received the actual RFE?  Does it state what was communicated at the interview?

ITEMS REQUESTED:
Other evidence (as well as one photocopy of each document presented) which will help establish that beneficiary's biological mother's relationship with beneficiary is bona fide.

 

That was from the RFE, i think the reason was because his birth was late registered. After getting the RFE, I searched on here and found another person that had the same experience. After the Embassy received the stuff we sent, (school records, vaccination records, and other stuff that listed my wife as emergency contact) the petitions were approved. It was never brought up at the interview. We filed February 22nd, and got the RFE on March 10th. The petitions were approved on may 3rd.

Ah yes... "side door" births are common ... so the embassy is very watchful on this.  Extreme doubt and they will require DNA testing.

I agree with Hank. This one is tricky and there is nothing written about it so it's not something someone would comment on here as it is very rare but not unusually and of course "now I know the rest of the story". :D
