Advice - Begin by clicking on the word "Guides" at the top of any page here. After you've studied the appropriate guide, download the I-130 and the instructions that go with it and study them both carefully. Then...ask any remaining questions.

I took copies of the I-130 & G325 with me to the philippines. I am still waiting on the rest of the legal documents from the province & them at that time I hope/guess i'll be ready to buy a stamp & send some documents off.

Tip... You can have her send you a scanned copy of the marriage certificate,, It does not have to be a NSO copy to file the I130... But, you will need the NSO copy once your paperwork is approved and gets sent to the NVC.
