My passport is expiring in December. I just had my biometrics last week so I'm expecting to get my EAD in October/November. The problem is the Philippine Consular Outreach will be happening in Orlando in October (about a couple of hours away from Tampa), so I need to renew then otherwise I may need to fly all the way to Washington, DC (which is really inconvenient). Is it okay if I renew my passport while in the process of adjusting my status? Will it cause any problems, since in my I-485 I used my current/old passport number? Thank you! :)

Has any of you filed for Report of Marriage at one of the Consular Outreach Programs by Philippine Embassy (Washington, DC)? I have a number of questions regarding the requirements:

  1. One (1) original or certified true copy and four (4) photocopies of the Marriage Record (original will be returned)
  2. One (1) original or certified true copy and four (4) photocopies of the Marriage Certificate or Contract (original will be returned)

What's the difference between Marriage Record and Marriage Certificate/Contract?

  1. Four (4) photocopies of Philippine birth certificate of Filipino spouse

Does this mean my BC or my husband's? I've read several posts online that I also need to bring my spouse's BC. Does this apply to US Citizens? My husband is a former PH citizen who acquired US Citizenship by naturalization.
