Irmo, SC asked in Immigration Law for South Carolina

Q: What’s the best way about getting married to my long-term Filipino girlfriend

She’s been to the United States many times she’s had her visa for a while she just got it renewed a little while ago and recently was here in South Carolina with me… Is there a certain way to say that’s she’s coming here to get married to customs or whoever does the visa to where it doesn’t look bad? Because we heard that if we get married there in the Philippines it could take up to two years but if we were to get married here and then her just go back to the Philippines and then come back later on already married basically is that the best way to go about it because we’ve already been together over two years but there’s an easier way

A: There are actually multiple ways to get or keep her here permanently, and none take two years. It would be best to discuss the three main options over a phone call. We offer a free consultation for such matters and have handled thousands of similar cases out of the Philippines alone.

A: She can consular process or be sponsored for a fiance visa or a third way that can be discussed in a phone consultation with counsel. Some of us charge a very affordable flat fee to process the case from start to finish. Discuss with counsel about your options.
