14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was married in hong Kong and about 3 months ago i filled out all the paper work with the money and sent it to the required place in hong kong were they are supposed to have your marriage reported, a place in macau, we were married in a place called hong kong marriage registry. So far I have inquired twice thru email wondring what is going on.. a couple weeks ago my wife called the nso and they told her that they cud deliver it in about a week to her house.. about 2 days ago she got a text and she called them and the nso basically said we r not in there database. so apparently we have not been reported yet and thats y im stressed out cuz its supposed to be crunch time now, where we shud get news that the nvc has sent r stuff to manila. and she still has not gotten a new passport yet cuz one of the many requirements is the verified/validated report of marriage wich is also a cfo requirement wich is also another requirement we must get done. add to the fact the marriage has to be reported in a year and the fact that we could possibly get a scheduled interview b4 we get this other stuff done.......................................................................................any help or suggestions

?? Did you not need to send a copy of marriage cert to USCIS when filing the I-130 ??

Do you have the original that you should have made a copy to send to USCIS with I-130?

Anyway, NVC will hold your case for up to 1 year for you to get documents in order..

I currently have 2 certified copies i recently received from hk and my wife has the original..i sent a certified in with the i-130. Im talking about my marriage being reported so it is on record in the phil, its not about me not having the copy or anything its about the phil needing the country u got married in to "REPORT" ur marriage to the NSO- NATIONAL STATISTICS OFFICE they validate it or watever, then ur on record in the phil,as being married in another country..

the validated marriage form she wud receive wud allow her to go to the cfo wich wud in turn allow her to immediately after apply for that much needed new passport with my last name on it

Now made clear! Moving this topic to the regional forum, less to do with consulate mor to do with specific country.

Okay...let me see if I have this right. You and you wife married in HK. Your wife is currently in the Phils. Right? If so, all she needed to do was take the certified copy to the NSO, and fill out paperwork to register right there in Manila. There was no need to go through the HK Consulate. She could have done it herself.

Anywho. It can take up to a few months for the paperwork to meander it's way to the NSO. Hopefully they will have it soon...You might want to consider having the wife fill out the forms, and drop the certificate off at the NSO herself.

I dont read all replies. See a question of the OP, then give an answer.

And dont you think, 2 or more the same replies confirmed with OP the right direction for his inquiries.

Nothing wrong with redundancy if it is the right answer and helps the OP, right? :P

My wife has the original marriage certificate, can she register our marriage without letting them have our original copy? Or does she need an extra certified copy? What would be the best way to do it?

Send her a certified copy post haste. The quicker the better. Once she registers the marriage, she can get an idea of when to expect it to show up on her CEMAR. My wife's took about 2 weeks.Hope this helps.

Your wife may be asked to show the CEMAR at her interview and will show that you and her are married. I would suspect that NSO will want an original copy but aske them and see. The best way to send documents in my opinion is FedEX. Expensive but fast and reliable.

:thumbs::thumbs:

That's right. The CEMAR will also show previous marriages, and if she was already married, they will want proof of annulment. The Philippines is a high fraud country, and the Manila Embassy has different requirements at interview than other Embassies. The CO can ask for whatever they want, and will RFE if they don't get it.
