Need Advice for Tourist Visa - Philippines

Good day everyone! I really need everyone's help here. My mom wanted to apply for tourist visa but here is the situation:

 

My mom and dad got separated, filed for annulment 2006.

"I think" my dad got married here in the US before the annulment got finalized. (PH is processing this too slow)

My mom was with someone but never got married to this person. Technically she's been single but was still using my dad's last name.

My mom just claimed the finality of their annulment in order for her to change all her IDs and passport BUT she needs to submit this to Philippine Statistics Authority to update her information. This will take 3-5 months.

 

So my nephew (his mom is my sister) I-130 got approved and he's underage so obviously he needs to travel here with a guardian ASAP. My sister couldn't pick him up due to her busy work schedule. This is why we want to have my mom apply for tourist visa ASAP; she doesn't want to wait for the confirmation from PSA that her status got changed. She will still move forward with her passport with my dad's last name but will bring a copy of finality just to prove that she is no longer married to my dad. Now, the question is, are they going to dig down to my mom's background during her tourist visa interview? I mean is there a red flag here? Should we proceed with our plan? She will be very honest during the interview of course but will need to explain the situation. 

 

We just don't want our dad to get involve with this because they still hate each other, we don't want my dad's citizenship to be at risk, if any. Probably y'all asking why we can't just petition our mom, I know it will sound weird but our dad is not allowing us to do that. He will disown us if we do that. That is how he hates my mom so much.

 

Please I would really appreciate your help on this!!

Without the issues is it realistic that your Mother would be issued a Tourist Visa?
