    The U.S. Embassy Manila allows nearly every petitioner of a K-1er to attend the interview. I've noticed that denials are rare when the petitioner attends the interview. Attending the interview helps to demonstrate to the consular officer that you have a bona fide relationship.

Cash payment at any Bank of the Philippine Island (BPI) branch. Just go into the branch nearest to her and tell them you are paying for K-1 Visa application fee. They will know what to give her to fill out. If she is unsure on what to fill out ask the staff there to help her fill it out.

    On the interview date she will have a time most likely 6:00 - 6:30 AM to be at the Manila USEM. She needs to have all her required documents in hand, appointment letter, and passport. Again refer to K1/K2 Interview Preparation Instructions as for what is needed. Make sure she has all papers organized. It makes for a easier processing at the embassy and shows seriousness. Buy a organizer with tabs. Label the tabs for each requirement.
    Once at the embassy, she will fall in line. They will take her appointment letter, check passport and assign her a number. At the embassy they don't allow any electronic devices.
    You are not allowed to enter the U.S. Embassy/Consulate while carrying any of the following items:
    battery-operated or electronic devices such as mobile phones, digital diaries, digital watches, pagers, cameras, audio/video cassettes, compact discs, MP3s, floppy disks, laptops, or portable music players

    sealed envelopes or packages
    cigarettes, cigars, match boxes, lighters
    sharp objects such as scissors, pen knives or nail files
    weapons or explosive materials of any kind
    If she needs her cell phone they will ask her to check it in at the security section. They will give her a card so she can retrieve at the end of interview.
    They will give her a form to fill out on how to deliver the passport with visa. Either it's deliver to her home address or she can go pick it up at a 2GO location.
    Once inside, she will need to look on the board for her number to be called. She will go to the window and ask for her paperwork. Then she will be finger printed. They will tell her to wait again. Once her number flashes again, she will have her first interview with Filipino consulate. They will ask her a few questions and check and process her documents. (MAKE SURE SHE HAS ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTS). If all is in order she answered all questions to satisfaction. She will then wait again for her number to flash again on the board. Then she will have her final interviewer US consulate. Consulate will process her paperwork and ask a few questions. If all is in order she will be told to wait again for her number to flash. Then she will go to the 2GO window where they will take her passport. They will give her a receipt (make sure to ask if they do not give one).
    That's it for the USEM interview. You can now breathe a little easier.

    Other documents as may be required by the counselors <-----------------------------
    Payment of P250.00 counseling fee.
    CFO link.
    The following forms may come in handy:
    Sworn statement that advice of parents or guardian has been asked. (for those who are 21-24 years old)
    Consent to marriage of a person under age. (for those who are 18-20 years old)
    Marriage applicants who are age 18 to 21 must have parental consent in writing, those age 21 to 25 must have written parental advice (a written indication that the parents are aware of the couple's intent to marry). The revised Family Code of the Philippines, which took effect on August 4, 1988, prohibits marriage for individuals below the age of 18.
    U.S. Department of State link.
    The quote above is from the section where they are talking about getting married in the Philippines. However, the CFO has been known to require parental advice or parental consent from K-1ers.
    It's all on the Consular's discretion whether they require consent from a parent or guardian.

    Because a few individuals from one culture exhibit specific negative behaviour it does not make it appropriate to label all individuals from that culture as possessing that same negative behaviour. Such comments are considered racist and are both insulting and hurtful to others from that culture who do not exhibit this behaviour. Please be more careful in the future when making such 'black and white' comments.

    I mentioned this before as a juvenile manipulative stunt. Creating the problem themselves... Then blaming you for it. The more practiced manipulators are very cunning and subtle about engineering these instead of playing it so obviously like a six year old. Regardless, the difference between this and kicking you in the nuts is that at least kicking you is open and above-board instead of underhanded and deceitful.
    Well, no - that may be a catalyst but it merely set loose all the built-up resentment, disrespect, anger, etc. that is at the core of your problems.
    You mentioned you "don't believe in divorce". The problem with that is the only way people like this learn is by having consequences to their actions. Younger and immature women need to have their boyfriends leave them because of their malicious behavior. Then they learn cooperative behavior. But if they are just malicious people at heart then there is nothing you can do about them except leave them. If you have told her you don't believe in divorce then you've told her she will never be held accountable. You're going to have to change that belief or else she'll change it for you. It doesn't mean you divorce her tomorrow, but if she doesn't start acting like an adult then by the time you do finally decide to divorce her then it's too late. You will despise her so much from so many years of abuse that any chance of forgiveness is lost.
    If she is 27 years old and therefore 23 when you got together then she's either got a personality problem or she just doesn't love you. The fact she is pregnant and you are on a diet can be factors but this has been a long-term problem. One of the things you have to do is recognize that the purpose of malicious behavior is to get you angry. To hurt you. The instant you see what they're up to - call them on it and refuse to let it work on you.
    Lira put her wedding & engagement rings down on my desk in front of me three days ago and said "We need a break". She was angry because I made her do something difficult in deep snow on the snowmachine and it has been hard for her to get over her fear of it. But it is absolutely a life and death matter if we are twenty miles out in the wilderness and she blows it like she was doing in practice. But when she put the rings down, I started laughing, and finished the script for her: "I really mean it this time...". I got her laughing too. These Filipina Units do have a manufacturing defect called "Stupid Pride". If you yell at them for making the same mistake three times in a row that's the best way to call stupid pride into action. So they'll "show you" by quitting. Then they're going to act out maliciously. So I diffused it instead of letting it ruin a whole day. Whenever she does this I tell her I know exactly what she is up to, and it isn't going to work: you want me to be angry. If you butt heads with her then it just escalates.
    She has spent three days practicing now, and she is getting much better. I hid the wedding rings real quick while the kids had her attention distracted at the time of this little event. Heheheheh. I let her know where they were yesterday. She thought she could find them without having to ask. Hopefully you guys could get to the point where you can overcome stupid pride like that and end up making a fun game out of what happened.
    Counseling is definitely in order for its value in impartial referee service. Not that she is all to blame. Nobody's perfect including you. But if she won't do it then the future is pretty easy to see. She's going to use that baby as a manipulative weapon to hurt you, and ultimately the real victim is going to be the child.
    "Shaming" is what the literature calls it when she says that you "can't handle it on your own" without a counselor. She knows that is deceitful and underhanded, but she has no scruples about that. This is the reason for bringing her into counseling. So that when she is guilt-tripping you, lying, shaming, using selective memory, etc. the counselor can call her on it. When it is perpetrated upon the child, or if the child is made a pawn in the war between spouses - it is a bad environment for them to grow up in.

    No you are not an illegal immigrant. You entered on a K-1 visa you entered the USA legally.
    You are in a period of authorized stay because you have an AOS petition in process, until you get an EAD and AP you cannot work or travel outside of the USA.
    EAD is not a "legal residency thing". It is an Employment Authorization Document. Which allows you to work legally while you wait for your CPR ( conditional permanent resident ) status.

    dindo and patty reacted to Stephen + Elisha in Affidavit of Support I-134 only needs 100%   
    This is a rather shortsighted statement. Once the visa is issued, your fiance(e) has 6 months at most to enter the US. Then you have 90 days from entry to get married. Since your new spouse won't be able to work or travel abroad until you start the AOS process, you will most likely not want to delay. So you're looking at 9 months at most (and more often less) to get to 125%. Yes, when it comes to AOS you can use a co-sponsor—a prospect not to be taken lightly either, as the co-sponsor is taking on a legal and financial obligation by signing that affidavit of support.
    What's the point of bringing your significant other here if you aren't confident that he/she will be able to successfully adjust status and stay here? I agree that it's a process and you need to take it one step at a time, but you also need to look ahead to know what's coming at you and be prepared to handle it.

    dindo and patty reacted to Stephen + Elisha in Affidavit of Support I-134 only needs 100%   
    merkin, your information is correct—but you're kind of missing the point.

    Consular officers have wide latitude in making the determination regarding adequate support. They're not required to ask for the I-134 at all. If they do, there's no hard-and-fast rule for adjudicating it. The Foreign Affairs Manual states only that "It is only necessary that the consular officer be able to conclude that the alien is not likely to become a public charge." (cf. 9 FAM 41.81 PN 2) The 125% requirement comes into play shortly after the K-1 holder enters the US, marries the petitioner, and applies to adjust status. If at that point you can't demonstrate the 125%, adjustment of status will be denied. Consular officers are not unaware of this fact.
    Given these two facts, if you try to skate by at the interview with support documents that only show 100%, you're playing with fire. You'll have to meet the 125% requirement in very short order anyway, and since the consular officer makes the call, that 25% may lead to a denial. It also may not, but do you really want to take that chance?

    This is what we did a little over 3 months ago and is solely based on our experience.
    Your fiance should already be gathering her Birth Certificate, NBI Clearance, CENOMAR, Police Clearance if she worked overseas for more than 6 months from the country where she worked, Annulment (if applicable).
    You as the petitioner should prepare I-134, employee letter, pay stubs, and tax transcripts for 3 years (you can order tax transcripts from IRS website for free), evidence of ongoing bonafide relationship, money remittance, and anything else that proves a genuine relationship, and then send it all to your fiance as she will need these things for the interview @ USEM.
    You can pay the visa fee through BPI it is $350.00 but will pay in peso based on the exchange rate that day. Be sure to have your passport when paying for the visa fee and keep the receipt. Wait til the next day and schedule your interview online. You do not have to wait for the eligibility letter from the USEM. Otherwise, you will be waiting for awhile. When you are scheduling online, you'll need manila case #, passport info, and the receipt # from BPI. Give enough time in between interview date and when she plans on getting her medical done when scheduling. There is no need to schedule an appointment for medical since it is walk in. You can register through the SLMEC and fill up the registration online and this will save you an hour and a half. if you don't fill it up, they will make you fill it up on the spot @ the clinic.
    A CFO sticker is needed to be affixed to your fiance's passport. If you do not have this, they will not let her board the plane. This can be done in advance and once you have the visa in hand, you can go back to the CFO office in Quirino Avenue and obtain it. Or, you can wait until visa in hand and then attend the CFO seminar and get the certificate the same day.

    dindo and patty reacted to KayDeeCee in 6 months running out   
    Your K-1 visa became null and void the moment you used it to enter the US. The 6 months was the time you had to use it to enter the US. It is a one time entry visa. You received an I-94 when you entered. It was valid for 90 days. That is what your status, as far as overstay time, is based on. You only had to marry within those 90 days, so you did that and filed for AOS. There is no deadline to file for AOS, and since you have the notice that you applied, you are now in a period of authorized stay. You can carry a copy of your AOS receipt notice with you. Any days you went over the I-94 expiration date will not matter once you are approved for the green card. You most definitely do not want to leave the US unless you have AP or your green card first. Otherwise you will abandon your AOS and your spouse will then need to file for a spousal visa in order for you to re-enter the US.

    In response to the moderator in question's request I have reviewed the threads involved and fully support her actions.
    Onggoy Diyos, if you insist on providing mis-information that if followed will be down right catastrophic for the individual and at the least will cause them delays and difficulties, and advising people to lie and misrepresent themselves on immigration paperwork, you can expect to continue having posts removed as well as face further administrative action. I have reviewed every post you have made, both the ones that remain and the ones that have been removed. The posts that were removed were unhelpful, insulting, promoting illegal activity or just plain wrong, and many of them made in response to posts that were 4 and 5 years old. If the responses had provided anything useful, that is one thing, but in many cases the information was totally inaccurate or added nothing to the thread.
    It is apparent reading over your posts that you have extremely limited experience with the US immigration process and only with one Consulate. We welcome our members sharing their personal experiences with immigration, however, it is important to remember that immigration is not a one size fits all. Different petitions, applications and processes as well as different consulates each have their own individual requirements and you cannot safely transfer the information from one consulate and one process to another consulate or another process.

    You getting an RFE is not solely on the advice from the members of this forum. It would not be fair to members of this forum who give time and energy to ppl who are looking for advice or available options.
    Getting an RFE can be coz of multiple reason, two same exact application one can get RFE and one will go thru without any RFE that happens a lot.
    There is no specific reason or logic if you do certain things you won’t get an RFE, some of it also falls on the officer who is reviewing your application, if (s)he is not convinced and wants additional information they can ask for RFE.
    Same officer cannot just approve all the application that come their way without RFE, I am sure if they do that they would have to hear from their boss about not scrutinizing the applications.
    So the members on this board has nothing to do with you getting RFE or not get over it.

    I think I have a grasp of this. You were arrested and charged with prostitution (which is a crime of moral turpitude and will result in a denial of AOS if convicted), lied to the police about who you were, and never followed up on the charges. Then, knowing you were fingerprinted when you were arrested and you were fingerprinted when you applied for AOS you thought you could get away with lying on your application about the arrest.
    Now, if I understand correctly, you are being told you need to take care of the criminal charges before they will adjudicate your AOS application.
    Time to pay the piper. Worst case. You will return to where you were arrested and be held until the charges can be heard. Since you lied to the police and skipped out I doubt they will grant you bail. If you are convicted of prostitution very small chance you will be granted a green card. Even if you have the charges reduced lying to immigration, the police, failing to meet your obligations by not appearing in court, and all the other things give you a slim to no chance of obtaining residency in the US.
