Thank you for giving helpful ideas really do appreciated it.I was wondering what u said about attending the CFO seminar and lodge the certificate,.We are planning to just walk-in and lodge at VIA centre Cebu or Manila (haven't decided where yet),as far as what i've read there's no certificate of the CFO seminar on the checklist,i'm not sure if this is what u mean?.,correct me if i'm wrong but if this certificate is one of those that i have to lodge then i don't want to miss it.
We are planning to apply on 1st week of Feb. and i don't want to miss anything so any advises and ideas would really help a lot..Thank u

I paid for the visa here in Australia and emailed the receipt (the receipt is an email if you pay by credit card over the phone) to my fiancee who just printed it off and added to the documentation. We did this as it was safer to carry the receipt than money and could always just be reprinted. Remeber lots of cards (engagement), letters phone bills western union receipts, photos in different places and try and have some that include other family members in photos. The most important thing is just be honest from the beginning and you will have no trouble

In 47SP, DID YOU ENTER THIS RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR FIANCE OR PARTNER WITHOUT ANY FORCE OR COERCION?

Why would they put trick questions in the form?

It is no trick question, in some countries/religions where they have arranged marriages there is a lot of coercion/force place upon people to marry. This often comes from their family memebers, so i guess the question is to give them a chance to not be shipped off to Australia to marry some stranger.

If you go to US Visa Specialists there is all the info there re what docs you need n timetable.

In Cebu i was there at 6.30am n there were a few waiting. They will allow only 12 in so best you arrive early esp if you live some distance away. A girl came from Sariago stayed in a hotel overnite so not to miss out...

Hello JustJoie, we got our marriage cert in 1 1/2 months after marriage but we went to the LCRO office to have it expedited. They forwarded our marriage contract to NSO 2weeks after filing. After requesting to NSO, we waited for 3weeks before the NSO marriage cert could be released. I don't know why it took that much time for them to generate the record. Anyway, did you file the marriage contract in the LCRO within metro manila or the province?
