Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.

They are being difficult with my fiance. First it was a copy of my birth certificate and passport. Once she got that, they wanted proof of singleness. I mean really. I signed on the I129F that I was single, and on the G325A. Puhhhhleeeeze... Seems to me they are making it as difficult as they can.

They are being difficult with my fiance. First it was a copy of my birth certificate and passport. Once she got that, they wanted proof of singleness. I mean really. I signed on the I129F that I was single, and on the G325A. Puhhhhleeeeze... Seems to me they are making it as difficult as they can.

One of the nuns in Cebu asks for proof of singleness for the petitioner. Not easy to get in the US.
Happened to a friend and she went back the next day without anything but she wasn't asked for it.

hi,

We use an agency to help our K1 processing.These are the requirements they gave us for CFO seminar.Hope this might help.

Requirements for the Seminar:

1. 2 pcs. Passport picture

2. P400.00 Registration fee and P400.00 Certificate fee

3. authenticated birth certificate with security paper from NSO

4. authenticated certificate of singleness with security paper from NSO (CENOMAR)

5. Baptismal Certificate

6. NBI Clearance

7. 2 valid ID

8. pictures together, e-mails, handwritten letters

9. Certificate of No Impediment - legal capacity to marry (fiance)

10. Affidavit of intent to marry (fiance)

11. first page copy of fiance's passport

12. Entry stamp of fiance's passport

13. Airline ticket stubs and terminal fee stubs during PI visit of fiance

14. handwritten letter of support (fiance)

15. handwritten marriage proposal (fiance)

16. handwritten letter of acceptance (fiancee)


They never look at some of these listed requirements but the agency just want to be sure that i have these just in case they will look for it. I took my CFO seminar in Cebu.Also secure photocopies of the requirements and if ever you will get documents from NSO request for 2 oroginal copies at least instead of 1 for future purposes coz sometimes it's hard to get those papers specially when you urgently need it.If you don't need it then just keep it as your own original copy.


Thank you.

Wow! Such an extensive list. Almost sounds like what is required for embassy interview ohmy.gif
I'm sorry but your list is recommending things that have already been submitted and approved at earlier stages of the petition application process. If a pinay brings a copy of the original `129F/ 130 packet, then that should be good enough.
What does anyone else think?
Old magicians don't die, they just disappear.

i hope to meet her, since we same place im from cebu



She has been THREE times so far, each time they come up with something ELSE she needs to bring. She has to go back AGAIN next friday. I talked to her for 45 mins a little while ago. She is pretty upset and crying. Just what the CFO is wanting her to do. I told her to be strong and patient and that I am with her 100 percent.. I did talk to a deputy directory or something at the CFO in Cebu. She said she would take a look at her file and get back with me. I was extremely pleasant and polite with her and she seemed friendly and helpfull on the phone. I certainly hope I didn't hurt her chances of getting through the class. I made it a point to not complain how Leah is being treated at the class.. Oh I almost forgot, now her mother has to come with her to the CFO class. I mean come on.....

Not to pry, but how old is she?

The Philippines does have some laws in regards to Parental Consent:

Marriage applicants aged 18 to 21 must have written parental consent. Applicants aged 22 to 24 must have received parental advice. Philippine law prohibits the marriage of individuals under the age of 18.


Generally speaking the above doesn't matter for K-1 visas because they will not be getting married in the Philippines, however the CFO can make things sticky for those that fall into the above age groups. A filipina 24 or under should be prepared to at least bring a written statement from her parents that she has received their consent/advice. Just to help smooth things.

In addition you might want to consider calling the embassy about this. They can apply some pressure if need be. There are receiprocity agreements between the U.S. and the Philippines (as well as many other countries) and if the Philippines makes it difficult on K-1 visa beneficiaries then they put the entire reciprocity agreement in danger and they could wind up seeing ALL visa classifications to the U.S. becoming restricted (including diplomatic). It probably would never happen over a single K-1 having trouble at the CFO, but what I am saying is that the embassy can help in such a situation.

Mark, she is 23 and I am 45, so yes quite an age difference. I dont mind so much the parent conset deal, as much all the other stuff that I have ALLREADY PROVIDED to the Embassy. And yes I had thought about getting the Embassy involved and seeing if they can "help her process along". Everything is legitimate in our relationship and love for each other. They aren't doing counseling as much as interrogating her. I thought that was what the Embassy did..

The CFO is run by a bunch of Nuns. They seem to feel it is part of their job to make sure the younger girls 'really, really, really, really want to be with their fiance/husbands'. I am 90% sure the reason the two of you are running into problems is because of the age gap and her being under 25. Unfortunately it isn't going to end at the CFO. You will probably wind up with an Adjustment of Status Interview as well, and possibly an Interview at the Removal of Conditions stage. Plus you will get to have the dubious pleasure of dealing with various 'petty' people talking behind your backs.

Such is life sad.gif Just consider it one of the 'stumbling blocks' on the way to happiness and you will probably be okay. wink.gif
