I need help getting pushed in the right direction

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a significant other that lives in the Philippines, and she has a 17 month old child. Our end plan is to get married and have her and her child take residence in the United States. How much more ambiguous is the process for filing for visas? Does the child need a visa/green card as well, or if my significant other had either would her daughter be under it too? Do I need to prove that I am able to provide and finance for both of them for an extended period of time prior to them obtaining a green card? Would she also be able to work in the United States while filing for a green card?

I know a lot of these are probably stupid questions, but I have little knowledge on visas as I've never had to obtain one, and I haven't needed one to visit the Philippines since I'm allowed 21 days a visit before a visa is required. Any help at all is beyond appreciated!

if you are a uscitizen,

then study in the guides section , there's a visa process described there that will get them CR-1 and CR-2 visas.

Best done on a PC, but

Go Get Em, and Good Luck !

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Have you and your S.O. met before? That wasn't clear in your post and certainly is a requirement for any sort of visa filing.

After a meeting, I assume you're asking about a fiancé visa, please study the guides AND the instructions for each form. these are immensely helpful

good luck

I assumed they had met as he implied he had visited.

K1 and K2 for fiancee and child and yes you will need to be the financial sponsor.
