Although I have the option to screen with the "DCF" enabled when checking out the timeline stats, I never found out what it means. I believe it stands for direct consulate filing. Can anyone fill me in what it is and what can be accomplish and how by going through DCF? Thanks!

Direct Consular Filing is when the USC petitioner files the I-130 petition for his/her wife/husband at the beneficiary's local embassy. For some embassies the USC petitioner must be living and working in the foreign country, for other embassies they just have to be present to file the petition (quick vacation).

I don't believe it is possible in the Philippines, or we would not see so many American/Philippine couples waiting months for their I-129s to be approved by USCIS!

Read the DCF guides if you want further information on the requirements and benefits.
