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:

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).

    Here's why you didn't see anything on the CFO website about those requirements:
    The following is from the CFO website:
    Requirements for Attendance to Guidance and Counseling Program
    Two (2) valid identification cards (IDs) with photograph;
    Duly completed guidance and counseling form;
    If married, certified true copy and photocopy of marriage contract on security paper from the National Statistics Office, or Local Civil Registry Offices; or original and photocopy of marriage contract duly authenticated by the Philippine Embassy/ Consulate (if married abroad)
    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.

    Once CFO seminar, certificate, Sticker and stamp is completed, you’re done. Book the Flight!!
