DS-5507 driving me crazy

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I am the US Citizen father and have already mailed the CRBA packet to the Philippines for my wife(includes originals) and i will not be present at the interview. Our baby was born "In-wedlock" also. Anyways in the instructions it states the DS-5507 "may" be required but doesn't establish it as an absolute. When I called the US Embassy in Manila they stated that the DS-5507 was not needed unless our child was born "out of wedlock." Their instructions on the DS-2029 seem to indicate it "May" be needed if the US Citizen Father is not present at the interview. 

 

Anyways.. I already mailed it without the DS-5057 so I guess I'm just trying to get reassurance from anyone who has had experience or knows for a fact if it's needed.  Thanks!

Yeah... it would seem so my friend. I guess i have seen decision makers and their instructions sometimes contradict each others so makes me nuts when I see that haha.

So you read the instructions and it told you what you needed. You called the embassy and they were so kind as to explain what you needed. How many more confirmations do you need. Maybe you need one more from President Durte. Who knows. It's been confirmed by the embassy move on.

The instructions were a "partial contradiction" as that is why I asked this question. Anyways it's ok, I am always OCD about this kind of stuff. I will leave it in God's hands. Thanks.

The checklist doesn't have it listed (yes I know it is noted on the DS-2029).    DS-5507 more or less duplicates info on the DS-2029.     DS-3053 and DS-11 are listed

Big deal is evidence of being present at time of conception and of course blood relationship evidence.

 

And lastly, make sure to get the Philippine passport as well (removes the requirement for ECC & fees when exiting the Philippines).
