I can't give you any links but if the marriage was legal in the Phillipines then it's legal here. Maybe you will get more local advice if you repost this in the Phillipines forum.

Yes.

I married a Filipina. It was recognized in the US.

I hope you aren't dealing with a Filipina who is still married to another Filipino, because if you are, you are screwed.

A marriage which is valid under the laws of the country where the marriage was performed is generally recognized by most states in the United States. If you are married abroad and need confirmation that your marriage will be recognized in the United States, consult the Attorney General of your state of residence in the United States.
