Marriage applicants aged 18 to 21 must have written parental consent. Applicants aged 22 to 24 must have received parental advice. Philippine law prohibits the marriage of individuals under the age of 18. http://manila.usembassy.gov/marriage.html

This applies to a couple getting married in the Philippines. However, the law still applies to the Filipino applicant for K-1 visa. You didn't state which one of you is the USC. This will not apply to the USC as you will be marrying in the US. The Filipino partner is still subject to Filipino laws. As with the CENOMAR, you will be required to present proof of consent or advice (whichever applies to you) from one of your parents at the interview.

I see. Since my fiance is only 21 (he's the USC) he still needs to include a written parental consent? and I should have a parental advise. Do we have to include these letters during the interview?

Thanks much!!!! :D

No.. You do not need to include parental consent in the I-129F Petition nor the Visa Application.

Your fiance is of legal consenting age to marry in the United States of America. You the fiancee (Beneficiary) do not have to include a letter of parental consent in the I-129F.

You don't not have to submit parental consent when it comes time to file your Visa Application. Remember your are filing a K-1 visa. The intent is to marry in the United States of America. Both of you are of legal consenting age to marry here.

The only time I see you may need a Letter of Parental Advice is at the CFO Seminar. This a big maybe.. As your are 24 years old. Most people don't need to this letter at CFO. It's all on consular's discretion.

This is the big iffy. The law is stated for MARRIAGE in the Philippines. More than likely, nothing will be asked for at the K-1 interview other than the CENOMAR, BUT and this is a big BUT, you should be prepared for it to possibly come up at CFO time. Being that you are 24, this would mean "parental advice". Some people do get a grilling at the CFO seminar so being prepared is key. If my fiancee was 24 or younger, I would have this covered. It isn't a big deal and not required by the US Embassy for K-1, but Wally Greene is correct. The CO at the interview can question you on anything and ask for this "advice" if they want to. Judging by threads here, some people were asked for "consent" or "advice" at CFO depending on the age. US states vary on age of consent, but 21 is above any age requirement for all states that I am aware of.
