  1. "Largest age gap I seen come through was 37 years.. they were approved." "they?", approval is not made by a team.... and yes one office may not like the idea of big age gap as the other may not like the idea of different religion.
  2. Cyberbro, I know it is hard to get the clear info from her, after the denial, but have her calm down, and help her remember all questions and how she did answer. You described a perfect scenario for a successful K1 visa, but again, what is the age gap, is your ex a pinay also, and related to your fiance, did you meet other girls on the 3 trips, does she or you have other K1 denied/withdraw before, who file for your divorce and why, any accusation of abuse, any court order/restriction. etc... Please dont take personal or offended, those are just questions that came to my head, knowing what was, will help you help you better prepare for the next step. Dont give up... it is just a bump in the road... you both will be here and happy. Van Der

    Passport, I want to ask

    I would not travel with a passport that will expired in less then 6 months, I have seen people getting annoyed from the airline company to the immigration in and out. Are you planing to get a new passport there ?

    Questions regarding changing my step son's last name

    You can change here with court as you mention, some Filipinos or other experts should tell us if name change is allowed there, in case it is not possible to change, your son will need to travel with Filipino passport using old name, not a big deal until they say it does not match with the airline ticket or give a hard time saying is not the same child. Luckily as an american he dont need visa in advance to enter Philippines, so he can enter as US tourist. But dont quote me on that, it is just me thinking out loud, I am not an expert in Philippines travel hacks :-D

    Name change after naturalization

    As far I as know, her US passport is a more powerful prof off citizenship, I would apply for a new passport, and passport card, l it ease to carry on the wallet, and keep the court name change and certificate on a safe.
  6. Congratulations. Very interesting, I like to know that as well, most likely not, but let me ask, did you added the baby name (name to be) to I129F, if you did, I believe you can request a K2 for the baby after he or she is born. but I will leave for the experts here to help you better.

    Joint Bank Account et al...

    I am wondering how Remitly and Western Union differ when doing bank to bank transfer! I never did any but I can see the option on WU online.
  8. After one have a Filipino Drivers License, what is the process with Philippine Auto Association to get the IDP? test again? fees? takes time ?
  9. So, it is possible to drive on US with a foreigner Drivers Licence as long is in English? until AOS \ work permit ?
  10. Does anyone knows if there is any value in having a Drivers Licence from the country of origin (Philippines) when moving to USA (Florida) on a K1 visa, I read some post where some frustration regarding time to get a Florida Drivers Licence is expressed. Is there a International Drivers Licence that can mediate the problem with waiting and getting short expiration dates on US Drivers Licence? Thanks Van Der
  11. Is there a process or a document needed to prove that ?
  12. K2 is visa fee $265 + AOS $750 + medical and IR-2 is i130 $420 + DS-230 $330 + medical - AOS correct? 6 year old
  13. Child is only 6 years old and father is nower to be found... Father is nowhere to be found , some very distant relatives believe he is now married and have other kids.
  14. Hello My fiance is waiting for the K1 visa process, we are discussing how is the best option to bring her son (my stepson after we marry), here after 1 or more year, someone mention IR-2 visa. Not being the biological father, can I file a petition for IR2 for him ? and what is the thing of living together for 2 years as a requirement, that I read in some places, USCIS site is not clear? Thanks
