Hello. I am a U.S. citizen and my fiancee lives in the Philippines. We have known each other for 10 months. I just came back from visiting her. I was there for 3 months. Can I go over to the Philippines and get married and file for a spousal visa at the consulate office in Manila and wait until it is approved and then bring my wife back here? Do I have to live there for a specific time period before filing? Is there any other papers I would need to file either here before I left or while I am over there? I would appreciate any help on this matter.
