Well depending on how long the process is, I would say after the interview depending if she gets an on the spot approval. Only reason why I say that is because you just never know if you’ll get hit with a 221g for necessary Administrative processing which varies from days, weeks, months & rarely years.

 

If you guys are willing to take the risk of resigning before visa is in hand then best to do it around the interview date or after she receives the decision at least. You get 6 months from visa issuance to use the K1. I heard Philippines isn’t bad when it comes to issuing visas, but just don’t want her to be out of work for too long if something unexpected was to occur. 

 

That’s my opinion.

True, it’s not an easy decision. What if she resigns before the visa is issued and there’s an issue? Both ways have a risk. Pick your poison.

 

The visa is valid for 6 months from the medical.

If she can sustain herself for a couple months, I would say she should start the process now.

Sooner the better if it is going to take time for processing the discharge from the military.

 

If you have the NOA2 you can figure a month + for the case file to clear NVC then a couple weeks to the embassy and READY to process the visa application.  You can delay processing the visa for up to a year (visa must be issued within that year).  Once the visa is issued you have upto 6 months to enter the USA 

 

There is no pressure if you don't push it.

What about you move there?

 

My buddy in Philippines just retired from PNP.   He was a captain in Davao City ,with over 600 guys reporting to him.  He received 3.2 million peso at retirement in 3 lump sums, and also gets 48,000 peso per month as a monthly pension.

Yes it is really a lengthy process, there’s alot of clearances she needed from different offices in the AFP and oh some offices requires alot of documents needed to get those “clearances”.

 

I used to be a civilian employee in the AFP before I moved here.
