Recommended Posts

Good eve guys,

I just have one concern.We get married in CA last 2012 a civil marriage then we have our church wedding here in the Phil last year 2013. My interview is scheduled this coming Monday Dec 1. My concern is do the CO will still ask my certificate of marriage from NSO? I dont have it right now. Our lawyer didn't inform us about it that we need to provide a copy of it. Hoping the CO will not ask for it. Anyone same situation with me? Thanks guys!

Hi i think that since you got married in the states the first time that really matters cuz they can see the marriage certificate from California as proof but you never know in the Philippines

When in doubt, follow the embassy instructions letter, your marriage certificate is from California... but then you may get a CO that hasn't read the instructions letter closely. ;)

3. MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE (if applicable). For Philippine marriages, copies must be issued
by the National Statistics Office (NSO) on security paper (not from the Local Civil Registry
Office). You may call the NSO Information Center at (632) 737-1111 to inquire about securing a
marriage certificate or visit their web site at http://www.census.gov.ph.

In order for you to have a marriage certificate recorded with NSO you would have needed to complete a Report Of Marriage and filed it with the consulate (in the USA) serving the state you were married in, if you did not do that your marriage will not be recorded in the Philippines. THUS the wording in the instructions letter ;)

If you want to contact the embassy for any reason:

Embassy Contact Information

The Embassy’s main trunk line 301-2000 is experiencing technical issues and prone to congestion. If your call can’t get through please use these numbers: 301-2166 or 301-2177

For visa appointment related inquiries, please contact the Embassy’s Visa Information and Appointment Service at (632) 982-5555 or (632) 902-8930.

NEW EMAIL ADDRESS

In order to serve our visa applicants more efficiently, we have created this new e-mail address:IVMNLAppointments@state.gov , for early appointment requests and visa scheduling issues. Please note, however, that early appointment requests will be approved on a case to case basis (i.e., aging out cases, or in cases involving personal or medical emergencies), and only if visa interview slots are available.

For other immigrant and K visa concerns, please send an e-mail to IVManilaReplies@state.gov

.

To enable us to electronically sort the messages and provide better, more timely responses, you should follow the instructions below.

Thanks a lot guys. It really helps and ease my worries... Thank you again. Wish me luck on my interview... God bless!

One more thing guys, my wife is 7mos pregnant and I have photos of her and our baby. Would it be a plus and CO won't ask me a lot of questions and documents like CEMAR from NSO?

If asked for CEMAR politely point out you were married in California, not the Philippines. If the CO halfway knows his stuff he will not ask for a CEMAR.

Photos are good, just not too many ;)
