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.

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.

i'm going back in 4 weeks for a month and informed my lady i could extend my visa to stay a year which she is delighted about even though i've told her we would have a strict budget and hopefully i will then know everything i need to know and have everything sorted so i can get her a visa when i return home and have proof of our relationship etc.

sorry if i've seemed a bit guarded, to be honest i don't know what information would help to give on here that would also help.

regards
mark

Do have a chat with a migration agent in your country so you are fully aware of the requirements and time frames.
I wish you good luck Mark and I'm sure every thing will work out, take care.

Cheers, Steve.

Are you aware of the financial, relationship and accommodation requirements that YOU need to fulfill in order to obtain a settlement visa for your girlfriend/fiance/wife? (whatever she will be when you apply)

You should read the following website carefully:

https://www.gov.uk/uk-family-visa

Your "partner" would be applying as partner or spouse.

Basically, YOU as the Brit, will need to be earning 18,600 GBP per annum or above to qualify under the financial requirements.

I am sure,,,,, one would hope after all the feedback within this thread to the OP, he has taken relevant info onboard and acts accordingly. Hope so. (see a migration specialist, do yourself and your lady that simple curtesy)
Interestingly though I see that the UK requires an IELTS test for residency,,,,,, a good call perhaps but one that was not required for my partner in Oz,,,,,,, It would have been another hoop to jump through, mind you my better half has good english and comprehension or he wouldn't be working within the government here in Oz. Do hope that Mark is aware of this requirement to get his lady to the UK. His lady has a year or two to accomplish IELTS so head down etc.

Only from my experience and one similar in Oz and the UK apart from IELTS. Time, lots of time is required to fulfil immi requirements, this time spent requires lots of love, plenty of patience, commitment and plenty of cash.
Now while I see the requirement of GBP 18K some 33 or 34K aussie dollars this is a very low requirement and should be easy to surpass.
What skills does the OP's lady have? Is she going to be the proverbial housewife or can she work and contribute to the relationships future and her own betterment/independence? Or just wait at home until the OP passes on? What then?

Regardless we or most of us have been there etc and did what we did, got burnt or not, Mark has to do what he thinks is now right for them but one hopes it's not the second brain controlling the decisions, as said good luck and it's probably time to put this thread to bed (poet and I don't know it) and let the originator of this thread move forward and prosper, I am sure if his lot is a winner we will hear about it.

Cheers, Steve.
