It is a long process indeed, at least a year, but it can be shorter than 15 months (I'm not finished yet but mine might take about 12 months).

 

Depends on a lot of things that you do and don't have control over which means it can take a lot longer.

Which form?  Are you the beneficiary?  A green card holder cannot petition a fiance. You will need to get married first and then the petitioner must file an I-130 form. 

 

You will I’ll have to marry in the Philippines and then wait for the PSA marriage certificate.
