Report of Marriage abroad Certified True Copy

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So apparently I thought I was off the hook, the USEM doesn't need Report of Marriage from NSO (I was married in the US) but to obtain a CFO sticker, I have to "report my marriage abroad" so I can submit this paper where it states that I am married to my husband. (NSO produced)... I am back in the Philippines and apparently I HAVE TO REPORT IT TO THE PHIL EMBASSY in New York..

My question is:

1. Can I just report it here since I'm in PH?

2. If not, how can I get a certified true copy of my passport? What's the procedure? Can I just go to DFA or do I have to go to different law offices for that? I tried googling it but to no avail, I just couldn't find the answers or the clear steps...

Please help, this CFO is getting on my nerves. :dead::bonk::blink:

Thanks in advance..

You could contact NSO and ask about doing the report of marriage there, but odds are you have to report it through the consulate servicing the state you were married in.

Luckily it can all be done by mail. Sadly this process takes WEEKS

I called up the consulate that has the jurisdiction over our marriage, and sadly, the man on the other line doesn't seem to be sure as to what to tell me, but I did ask if I can report it directly to DFA manila, and he said yes.. though I have to clarify that with DFA then.. I am just waiting for them to open so I can call them up asap..

yes that is the sad part, takes a while, but I guess it's alright sir, since I just got approved NOA2 and the NVC stage seems to be a very long phase due to backlogs and high approval rates of petitions from the USCIS.. fingers crossed all of the paperwork needed would be just at the right time when I have to submit them..

oooooooh these processes will turn my hair grey so fast.. I can now see several on my head. lol.
