Strong ties like own house? So we don't need invitation letter and the employment permit of my husband?

 

You being there shows strong ties as to why she wouldn't return to the Philippines.

 

She needs to demonstrate even more why she would return.

 

And what did you mean by "I have a tourist visa here in California"??

Is that okay that my mom can apply for tourist visa even Im just 1 year  dated march 11 here in usa and my adjustment of status interview will be coming soon? My mom is plain housewife and she can only show the house they've own, monthly pension income and some money in bank will that be okay? Or my husband really need to send them invitation letter because no one will support her only her income in the bank and pension of 9000 per month.

If the consul asks about your status, your mom answers that you’re adjusting status from K1. Simple truth. 

Your husband doesn’t need to send any letter/documentation.  That is NOT required. 

If you read my parents’ experience, they didn’t bring anything, JUST their passports and DS160 confirmation sheet.

Everything the consul needs to know is already on the DS160 that’s why it’s important that your mom’s answers are CONSISTENT with what’s on the DS160. 

My parents are both retired too and it was my brother who paid for their trip.  My brother already has a tourist visa at the time our parents applied and he traveled with them here in the US.
