Dear Feyma, I am a filipina and wish to go to America. Married to a Pinoy many years ago and this seems to be a real problem obtaining the appropriate visa for me to enter the USA. What can I do? I have an American boyfriend and I love him. We had child together with my American BF and he is here with me now. He wants me to go with him to the USA, now I have a problem which visa do we apply for? And how do we even begin this long journey? Please advise.
Wow, to be honest I don’t know what kind of visa that she needs to get. She didn’t tell me if she already got an annulment from her previous husband. Firstly I don’t think she can even start processing any papers before getting any annulment from the hubby. Right? I know nowadays some couples get the annulment quickly. I know some waited for 7 years. So it really comes down to how badly you wanted to get it. The quicker way or the long years process (the few months or the waiting of 7 years)? It also depends on where you process. Just don’t know this kind of processing though. Honestly I am not an expert on this, just over heard people talking about it. People that I meet through the years. Some people we know that waited for years on it. Some that just waited for weeks.
I hope that this girl already got an annulment from the former husband. Some girls really have difficulty getting the paper signed by the former husband especially if he knew that the former wife’s next hubby will be a foreigner. It might be easier for her to obtain the signed papers from the previous hubby since they didn’t have kid anyway. I don’t think she had kid with the former husband since she didn’t mention in her email. Heard of a lot of similar stories before that the lady had to hide from the former hubby before the annulment that she had a foreigner bf. Some men, not all anyway wanted some money from the former wife before they signed anything. Sometimes big amounts of money. I’ve heard of some foreigners who pay.
I hate sometimes that the other partner used the kids to get money from the other partner. For me they should never used the kids for it. In all honestly I hope that the lady already got an annulment from the previous husband so that both her and the former husband can moved on and be with the person they loved the most.
I also know of somebody who is living with the lady that used to be married before and had kids with the previous husband. He bought an expensive house and lot in a nice subdivision. Just hoping that the lady will get the annulment paper signed by the husband soon. I think they(the guy we know and the lady) wants to get married as soon as the annulment would be approved. I hope that the guy would not get in trouble here and be kicked out and lose everything he bought for the lady. Oh well its his choice. He will learn if something happens then.
Any advice here from you guys to the couple that emailed me I would really be happy to pass that along. Just don’t know what to say to the lady that was asking? Maybe some of you who has expertise and know the situation a bit, if you can give some advice here or you can email me privately. Thank you again guys for helping some people here who are in need of your advice.
