  1. Hello all. I'm a natural born US citizen living in the USA. I'm dating a wonderful Filipina who is an OFW in Dubai. She is still legally married, but hasn't been with her ex for many years. I meet all of the requirements for income, marital status, etc., and she and I have seen each other in Dubai and traveled to other countries together. She can get an annulment, of course. But, it will take a long time and be costly. And, we are also aware that the Philippine Congress is working on legalizing divorce. But, we are not too optimistic about the timetable of such a law. We would like to speed the process so we can live together in the USA. I'm reasonably convinced that she can get a divorce in Guam (or even Las Vegas, if we could get her here to the USA on a tourist VISA -- yes, I do understand that might be a violation of the intent of a tourist Visa). Her Ex would be cooperative. We understand that the divorce would not be valid in the Philippines, but we don't care much about that as a practical matter. What we would like to know is if she can obtain a VISA to the USA (either as a K-1 or CR-1) if we manage to get her a Guam divorce. Of course, she holds a Philippine passport and it does have her married name. Alternatively, is there a foreign country (preferably in UAE, but we could travel anywhere a Filipino could normally go) in which we might marry with the Guam divorce papers, and have that marriage recognized as legitimate during the CR-1 application process? We would apply for the K-1/CR-1 US Visa through the Dubai embassy, unless there is another method that someone might recommend. Thanks for your thoughts and input.
  2. My fiance is in the process of becoming a Japanese citizen (she is currently a Filipino citizen; we wanted it be easier for her to visit countries as well as visit me); however, I just got the NOA2 letter. She will become a Japanese citizen before her fiance visa interview. Will that affect the K-1 visa process at all? Do I have to fill out more forms to show that change of citizenship? Or can she just bring all the Japanese citizenship paperwork to her fiance visa interview and show them there? Would they deny her at her interview for that reason? Sorry for all the questions. Any helpful information is appreciated. Thank you very much!
  3. Hello, I badly needed help as I missed my mom so much. My husband and I have been married for good 5years. We are in and out once a year to visit my family back in the Philippines. I just also received my permanent GC last year. I’m a housewife and only work for a year and half for the last 6 years here in the US. ( I mentioned it just in case I needed to support my mom) my husband and I have a stable rental business. My questions are; How can I start the process of bringing my mom here in the US? Is it true that Tourist Visa is faster than if I petition her? what are the requirements I need to prepare for her side ahead of time? How long the Tourist Visa can deny nor approved? All answers will highly appreciated. Please let me know as soon as possible what to do. Thanks to all. x
  4. Hi guys! So I have a CR2 visa when I came here in US, but I have to adjust my status due to being married to a US citizen because I wont be able to remove my conditions because my parents don't want me to include in theirs anymore. I was just wondering if I still have to fill out part 3 no. 1-4 since my parents applied my visa before? TIA!
