You know my dearly loved but departed dad always said "God helps those that help themselves" the twist to that is "and Christ help those that get caught".
The OP clearly seems to be relying on feed back from this and possibly other sites, perhaps I am wrong, maybe this can be clarified?
I certainly ask lots of questions here and other sites but I usually consult my best friend "google" for a bit of an idea and perhaps facts (though confusing at times especially government departments) and information before I ask the learned.

For our OP I simply typed into google " Fiance Visa from Philippines to United Kingdom " and got over 120,000 hits, then I typed in partnership visas and got nearly 1.5 million hits.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating and while I and others hear your heart/the love strings softly playing the reality is simple. Walk softly but always carry a big stick.
While lefties and others opinions may appear cynical I see they are quoted from experience and the realities of dating and experiences in a third world country, most have been there, we are going back to live soon. Your wish is achievable as ours was, Bengie is a permanent Australian resident, has worked here for nearly 4 years and will maintain his residency in case I kick the bucket, better life and options for him, me also.
While wholesomely difficult to secure, marriage and living in the OP's country has a many fold effect and one I am glad I/we pursued for the betterment of our relationship in Australia. My better half has blossomed.

mbeast, if this is what you want and where your heart is (as long as the other brain is not making the decisions) then there is no hurry, relax, enjoy as you may have the next 30/40/50 years together. Scour the net, sure ask questions here but best to thoroughly read the law with your countries immigration policies. Do yourself the cutesy of simple education with the law and spend more time in the Filipino culture, some hate, most love.
Again, good luck.

Cheers, Steve.

you hit the nail on the head, whilst google can help, it is a minefield of what is useful and what is outright fiction and with so many hits when searching it sure takes a lot to go through.
Via my search i found this forum which i thought would be the best place to talk to people that have already made the move to getting to know and marry a filipino women and bringing her to live with him in the UK

Mbeast I'm not familar with the UK and I've never been there but have you tried to meet Philippine or Asian women in the UK? This might sound like a silly question but as an example I met my wife in the US, the Asian women have spots where they hang out or meet up and usually they are bars but not always, maybe church activity such as Ingesia ni Christo or Mormon.

JRB_NW mentioned make sure she's not married, this is a real concern and especially if she has kids, you'd be surprised how fast your world can be turned upside down and get even more complicated, you don't want to mess with lawyers or Immigration here.

I had a long rant on what I've experienced, seen and read on these expat forums from guys that bring their bride to their countries, but I'll shorten down to you'd be better off if your an older gentlemen retiring to the Philippines vise bringing her to the UK so If not possible I wish you well with perseverance you can make it happen.

The laws are securely in place, your embassy/immigration spells it out in black and white. You and your fine lady need to understand the immigration laws that apply to your particular circumstances and little else if you are both serious. Though a short time to know each other if that is what you both want then go for it and as said do your research well, here say and opinions offered on most of these sites could or could not be valid relating to your particular circumstances and while we all appreciate input/advice from fellow members one needs to validate the advice and or opinions and make an informed decision possibly derived from input but verified by yourself.

Members can only try to point you in the right direction but the ultimate decision is yours.
I have to add that 3 months chatting in social media and then a 2 week meet up? That's quick and potentially fraught with danger. Go by the book legally as you have no choice, when it comes to the heart? been there, been burnt, back again, been burnt, back again to finally find the one, together now for over 6 years, hope you guys are together for 50 years. Gods speed.

Cheers, Steve.

I recently posted how my neighbor down the street who operates an Internet Cafe found a sucker (American) via chat. He also visited for 2 weeks while her husband hid in the neighbors house. The American is sending wheel barrels full of cash to build their 3 story apartment building where the American thinks he will retire with her next year. Her Philippine husband has other plans to tell the American to beat it.
I frequent Angeles City and sometimes go into the Internet Cafes to use the Internet. One can see the girls, some with 6 chat sessions going on with Foreigners from all over the planet. They laugh and will boast to you that all are sending them money. The crowds at Western Union and other places don't dispute that.

I know of a girl who is milking a Brit right now. She has a large scar on her cheek. She used to work in the Bars, eventually married a local security guard, has 2 kids to him. Spends her time now ripping off foreigners via internet chat. She is very beautiful and clever. When the Foreigners visit, the husband lets her spend time with the foreigners. The husband just wants the cash. One Foreigner tried to break off the relationship after he found out she had kids, she had her husband call the foreigner, said he was a Doctor, needed P20,000 to do emergency surgery to scrape her belly lining because she took poison because of the break up or he would be liable. The foreigner saw her dancing a week later, no surgical scar, only the stretch marks from her kids.

Here is some advice: If she has a "legitimate " Job, and you are not supporting her then "perhaps" she is legitimate because she had to go through NBI/Police/Barangay Education level clearance to get the legitimate job.

If she is jobless, has stretch marks, and you are sending her money, Don't spend another centavo on supporting her until you have a private investigator here provide you details on her background.

Girls here use Coconut Oil to rub on their belly during pregnancy. It actually works and hides the stretch marks.

25? Surely she has a job, where does she work?

Are you sending her cash?

at the moment she is in collage and baby sits to pay for it.
i've brought her a mobile phone but don't send her money other than to buy herself a valentines gift and flowers as i didn't know who to order from to be sure they would arrive on time and in good condition. (i have seen them and receipts that she insisted on showing me).
