Enterline Immigration Consultants affiliate Enterline and Partners is pleased to share that it has received approval of an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative (“I-130 Petition”) for one of its Philippines clients who was married by proxy

The client, a U.S. citizen (Jack) and his Philippines wife (Jill), were married online with Jack being physically present in the United States and Jill located in the Philippines. Following their online marriage ceremony, Jack was able to travel to the Philippines and met Jill physically for the first time. During Jack’s time in the Philippines, the newlywed couple worked closely with Enterline and Partners, submitting documentation to build a case proving consummation and a valid marriage. After Jack departed the Philippines, Enterline and Partners submitted the I-130 Petition to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) complete with strong supporting documentation in order to minimize the chances that the USCIS adjudicator reviewing the I-130 Petition would issue a Request for Evidence or Notice of Intent to Deny. Less than three months after USCIS received the I-130 Petition, the I-130 Petition was approved and will now move to visa application processing with the National Visa Center.  Jill will then be scheduled for an immigrant visa interview at the U.S. Embassy in Manila.
