Bisaya translator, lots of typing but seems to work fairly well.

to get an affidavit sign by someone who remembered her birth to get a certificate issued. Luckily the young secretary remembered the event with remarkable clarity. Also with luck my wife's family have moved to Bataan so we didn't have to fly in from Dumaguete.

Another common problem is when a birth certificate is produced they find the name they have been using all of their life is not their true name. It is common in the Philippines to change the name of a sickly child because they considder the old name to be unlucky.

Spelling mistakes are common and getting the sex changed can be a big problem, yes they do get it wrong more often than you would hope.
spelling mistakes was the problem she has and also her birth certificate she has is in her mothers name, she has now found out she can be registered in her late father's name with all the paperwork she has but has been told in dumaguete she needs to go to manila to do it.

maybe i should hire a investigator but to be honest i do not have a clue how to go about doing that from the UK and fear if she ever found out it would ruin what could be a amazing relationship.
At least mbeast your honest on your intentions and nobody will be able to stop you even hiring a lawyer so good luck and best wishes. Good luck with your romance I hope it all works out.

I sort of lost an Expat friend, he kept asking me for help on his many troubles with his woman here sort of similar to yours only it kept getting worse, the signs were there soo many and I knew exactly what was going on and warned him, he had me translate also and showed me his girlfriends Facebook channel, she had so many other's I was able to find, but he failed to listen, the guy was so badly used he lost this nest egg, got a huge loan on his home he spent decades paying off and stuck in his homeland most of the year until he can save up and do it all over again, but to this day he's still dating her... LOL.

All you have to do is come here and vacation in a tourist trap and a woman will find you, there's no need to search online just get out and make yourself available by breathing... almost all of these women will be knockouts or drop dead gorgeous there's soo many of them, they all have overseers or boyfriends your just gonna have to overlook that fact but the most important fact you won't want to miss is that... is she married, you can set yourself up for a very agonizing life if she still is married you could be set up for blackmail and incarceration if caught, so if no blackmail money the husband reports you, you won't be leaving the Philippines for decades.

Most girls will go with the name they've got and not try and change the paperwork as it's a lot of hassle. The girls usually will not know how to do it so will listen to friend who don't know either.

She does not need to go to Manila to correct her birth record! Repeat, she does not need to go to manila to correct her birth record. All can be done in Dumagete.

Mostly through letters, emails, photos together, receipts from expenses here they just want to be sure you have a true working relationship.
You might decide to move over here and stay also. Cost of living here is much lower than your home country and none of that cold fog all the time.

Again, visit or call your immigration service there to get accurate requirements and other information.

best of luck for sure..
Sorry but at this point in time a K1 fiancé visa is taking roughly about 9 months right now for the USA.

I was going to say shocking. But then remembered the changes in immigration laws and the backlog it will create. Things do change. Thanks for the update..

I give you credit for seeking advice from others. "Many" do not and have no clue that they are being taken advantage of big time and there are cases when even when they hear the advice, they are in denial about what they hear or see.

Here are 2 options below where you can request a CENOMAR (Certificate of Non-Marriage) based on your claim as her Fiancée. I suggest you still pursue the PI though especially after her saying she needs to go Manila to fix something that all Filipino's know can be done where they live. (Sounds like a delay tactic).

CENOMAR:

You can order it online and pick it up after you arrive or If you have a friend here, they can pick it up at "any" NSO office "anywhere" in the PI then use this. Click on order now, then click on CENOMAR.

https://nsohelpline.ph/

If you don't want to wait until you arrive then you can order it here. • FOREIGN REQUEST: delivery destination is outside the Philippines; USD 20.30 per copy for copy issuance and USD 25.30 per copy for CENOMAR.

I posted this 5 days ago:

Good info Joe, interesting story also.....busted.
You can also find out if your lady or man is married without going through the hassle of engaging an investigator.
But you need to have the following info set out here:

https://psa.gov.ph/civilregistration...cument/cenomar

Then the application and fee of PHP 415.00 here: Click on CENOMAR not marriage.

https://m.nsohelpline.ph/order/type

Cheers, Steve.

I stand corrected as the fee appears to be PHP 465 now.
Regardless of this post and your post joe I doubt the OP will have enough information to apply for this as he will need info from his lady and could be told many or any thing that suits.
I think as the OP has looked into a PI then perhaps his answers will come that way whether good or bad, it is then his decision.
A difficult situation as only the OP knows all the info with regards to his lady and shares little of that knowledge with this forum or appears to be somewhat guarded.
Good luck with the PI mbeast and I do hope all is good, I am also glad that you have pricked your ears after all the replies here.

Cheers, Steve.
