  1. Philippine Consulate General, 122 South Michigan Avenue, Suite 1600, Chicago, IL 60603 312-583-0621
  2. Contact the Philippine Embassy in Chicago and they will be able to approve any visa's prior to your travel. You should have received your Green Card after her arrival. My wife got here the middle of September 2018 and got her social security card and green card by 1 October 2018. Did you fill out the form for the green card and pay the cost?
  3. Using vinegar as a cleaning agent is very good. Kills all sorts of germs.
  4. Elevate and ice your knee for about 30 minutes and then heat for about 30 minutes. Make sure you stretch the muscles around your joints before a long day of walking. Build your muscles around your joints.
  5. Two sites I used: USCIS . gov and ph . usembassy . gov. Did all the paperwork myself (and it was correct), it was easy, just all the politics here in the United States over immigrations. Both sites give step by step.
  6. Olivia and I got married on 16 January 2017 in the Philippines. Had all of the paper work ready to go before that (USCIS also the U.S Embassy web site in Manila). She got approved and arrived at the end of September 2018. Got her Social Security Card within 10 days of arrival and Green Card within two weeks. But it took right at 20 months from the time we got married and submitted the paper work. Very long process.
  7. I asked Olivia when we met online if she was sending money to her family, Mom and Dad was my main concern. Her younger brother, younger sister with husband and son live with them. Older sister, daughter and granddaughter spend most of there time there. Olivia was sending about 5000 peso a month to them. I knew that I had to replace that amount per month, so I started sending $350 ((18000 peso) a month. At that time I asked Olivia to stop working so she could spend time with her family prior to coming to the United States. She did and I added another $250, making it $600 a month. The money was to pay the bills and put the rest in savings in case of emergency. A few months later a situation came up and extra money was need, I said use the money in the emergency saving, reply was we don't have any money in the emergency funds. I helped out, then told the wife that I would drop the money back down to $350 a month and that I would put the extra $250.00 in saving here. They have not asked for extra since then. The wife is with me now for over 4 months now. We have a nephew (13), 2 great nephews (6 and 6 months) and one great niece (5) I will help with school, I believe in education. I'm not book smart, but I do believe I'm street smart and have common sense. 2
  8. How hard is it to get some chemicals to spray for insects/bugs? I have some stuff here that will kill all insects/bugs, mix it with some water and spray. Kills all insects/bugs and no birds hang around because there is no food for them.
  9. Wife calls me Hubby and I call her Sweetie. Olivia has no kids and her sisters and brothers call me Ken and there kids call me Uncle Ken. She is adjusting very well here in the United States, except for the cold. She has made a few Filipino friends in our area.
  10. If her visa is not approved, then she is not approved to come to the USA. I just went through this with my wife. Submitted our paper work to USCIS on 24 January 2017 and the visa was approved on 17 September 2018. She was not authorized to travel until the visa was issued. In my case, I'm retired from the United States Navy. Once I got married I had my wife go to the VA in Manila and get a retired dependent ID card, then she was covered by TRICARE Standard (Insurance). Now if Bigmac has insurance from his company that he works for, they might cover his wife. If Bigmac wife was here in the USA then she would have her Social Security Card, then MEDICAID (only in USA) could help with medical bills for a low income family.
  11. Just looked at my wife's visa, it was issued on 17 September 2018 and expired on 4 December 2018. That is only 78 days, not sure how they came up with the expired date. She got her on 26 September 2018 and got Social Security Card and Green Card within two weeks of arrival.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if she has been approved to come to the USA, her visa has been approved and her 90 day counter has started.
  13. Bigmac when does your wife visa expire? I think my wife's expired 90 days after it was issued.
