First don't get married yet!

Learn the visa options.

About $10,000 and depends a year or so wait

Busy on another post, but other will give you a run down I am sure.

Do lots of research and get acquainted with the various visa options and requirements or engage an Australian based registered migration agent to take care of it for you.

Unless you have actually been living together and have some sort of joint household, you may be better off applying for a prospective marriage visa and getting married in Australia.

Whatever you do, don't rush into anything, especially not marriage.

What's your situation?
Are you living in the Philippines?
Where is the Filipina living?
Have you met in person?
Has she ever been married?
Does she have children?

Marrying a Filipino could be very difficult or impossible in some cases, so please post your answers to my questions as I have experience and know the Filipino laws well.

You might need a lot more than $7,000 in the end.

The answers to FreddoBee's questions might help with some right answers.

Also, where do you plan to marry your Filipina, there or in Australia.

As others have said, if you have no idea then consult a Registered Migration Agent, so as to avoid any potential disappointments.
However before that make sure she is free to marry you, and there is no forgotten husband lurking in the background.
Likewise should she have any children, if she intends to bring them with her, then their father must give consent.
As for all there is to know about marrying a Filipino, I have been married for 29 years to one and still know very little about them !!! :D:D:eek:

First up CCMS that has replied is a Registered Migration Agent, in almost every case on Australian migration, his advise or comments will trump any of us others comments and all RMA's on this forum supply their RMA info below their comments.

Many countries have a few extra things to beware about prior to an application, but most of the basics are the same as it is within legal limits.

* First you have been asked to answer some questions from a member that seems to have local knowledge and was liked by a member I know has that knowledge - so answer those questions (is my advice).

* It also helps to give a basic relationship time line that includes any online meeting and personal meeting and any contact since first meeting. Bullet point is fine and makes for easy reply.

*Any other info such as travel, kids, property ownership, education and employment can also help - no details are required but can lead to options.

* Lastly it is not a simple, short or cheap task, so get prepared for that and lots of homework.

I like this answer! Filipinas are lovely ladies but a lot of unknowns lurk beneath that lovely exterior! After 2.5 years with my lady I still have much to learn, I'm sure.

You are on an interesting road of discovery FreddoBee!
I first met my wife in 1985 and we were married in 1989, 5 of my good friends married Filipinas around the same time,only 1 of the 6 couples have divorced, which must be some sort of record after close to 30 years!

would add up that Jeff's wife is a Filipina also and so far I agree with what he's writing on his blog. he's giving the good and the bad of marrying a Filipina.
