From reading this thread, there is no way for the Filipina to enter and live in the UK unless as spouse or fiance of UK resident OR she enters with a work visa from a sponsoring company. Sponsoring companies are looking for qualified, experienced, skilled people in order to be able to apply for a Tier 2 visa.

As the Filipina is still married then she is not eligible for spouse or fiance visa until such time as she obtains a divorce or annulment.

People can only apply for citizenship after residing in the UK for 5 years.

Lots of unmarried people living together here. Not at all uncommon once a marriage breaks down since annulment is difficult and divorce impossible.

If by 'here' you mean the Philippines, then that is an option for the poster to move to the Philippines.

It is not an option for the Filipina to enter the UK.

thank you in advance
Only option I see for her to go to the UK is for you to pay for her annulment in the PI and then marry her in the PI. Probably looking at 200,000p and 2 years for the annulment and then marry her and wait (5 years?) to move her to the UK.

That's along time and anything might happen along the way.

she doesnt qualify for any of the annulment reasons! plus even if she did i wouldnt marry in the phillipines again thats just stupid. also why would i wait 5 years to get her here? she could come here on a spouse visa if i marry her or on a fiance visa if i was going to get her here first.

but anyway none of this matters now because she cannot get an annulment
