Depending upon their workload

Depending upon their workload in the Government offices, it could take up to 8 months to get the visa issues.  She will also have to obtain a number of documents from the Philippines incuding notarized documents from the schools, police, etc.  Then, she will have to be interview by the American counsel in the Philippines and take a class.  It can be quite frustating and time consuming. What you don't want to do is get married in the Philippines and try to get a spouse visa. That could take up to 2 years.  I never figured out why.

I did this about 9 years ago and it only took 6 months.  But, that was before cutbacks in the government offices.  My suggestion to you is that you hire a visa attorney.  There are a number of them on line.  They can cost you up to $2,500, but you'll save yourself a ton of headaches and time.

Hope this helps.
