the chances of you getting a visitor visa with a US husband are slim to none. The consulate will see you as having HUGE immigration intent. You can try, but it isn't likely. Good luck!!

Yes, it would almost certainly be a waste of time and money. The U.S. Embassy Manila is tough on visitor's visas, especially when you're married and have few ties to the Philippines.

Don't waste the money, use that cash to file the I-130 Petition.

save the money for the I-130 Petition just like the others said.

being married to a us citizen and having a us citizen kid is a huge tie to the US not the PI.

Even with a tourist visa it is not easy to get in.

I recently visited my fiance with my son who is a US citizen through CRBA.

I didn't go through a second interview but it was the longest 30 minutes of my life. Good thing I came prepared with my docs ie printed vacation leave approval, my noa1 (for the k1), certificate of employment, of course return tickets.

They did let me in. :) :) :)

A young woman with no ties to PI, a USC huband (and presumably son) will not get a tourist visa.

Obiously money is tight, save your money
