They accept photo copies but for some documents they want to view the original but only keep the copy.

There are details on CFO in my link below (Process is the same for K-1 and IR/CR-1)

What to bring in CFO (based on my experience)

* Online appointment form (I don't have this before since they haven't implemented at that time I had mine.)

* Passport (have a 2 photocopies of the bio page and the visa stamp)

* NSO birth certificate and cenomar (actually they really get mind but I just bring them just in case)

* Completed CFO form (serve as your kodiko for filing the form they will give you.)You should know your petioner details like his complete address, telephone number, age, birthday, or even his previous spouse information and divorce degree if his divorced.

* NBI Clearance ( have 2 copies also) it is advisable to have a photocopies of all your documents.

* Money for the payment. Have enough money coz there is no jeep route heading that building so Taxi and pedicab are the only way going there if u don't have a car. Also bring a small drinking water, the entire process could take 4-5 hours.

* and lastly bring proof of relationship.

Good luck :)

Make copies of anything you do not want them keeping. CFO does keep many documents, but they are happy with copies after seeing the original.

now for nbi clearance, will they accept the "personal copy" that comes with it when you get it?

Never heard of CFO wanting a copy of the NBI. Some have used the NBI as a picture ID, but CFO doesn't ask for a copy.

From my link under the CFO tab.

Required documents + + "OTHER DOCUMENTS" they ask for at CFO: 2X2 passport photo (Filipina), originals & copies of; CENOMAR (CEMAR and marriage certificate if married), certified birth certificate. Passport and copies of bio page of passport, visa page from passport, pictures together. From USC (copies of) - bio page of passport, birth certificate, divorce decree (if been married before) are the most common requests. (USC if you have never been married before CFO has been asking for a copy of the tax return - if you provide that to CFO then for sure BLACKEN OUT YOUR SSN and other vital info that should not be made public. )
