For those of you that seem to have a reading problem, here is why I'm staying in the United States.

Noog, you look somewhat Asian. Are you half? Just wondering....
And I support whatever decision you make. Sometimes, living in the U.S. with a foreign wife may not be the worst decision after all, even though I would disagree. You got to do what's best for your family!
I read that you have two kids BEFORE I RENDERED MY POST.
It's still no excuse.....you can travel even once or twice a year if you can afford the time and money to see her in her country before your kids become 18 so that they can get a passport and travel independently. If they decide they don't want to see you in the Philippines, then unfortunately they made their choice on that for whatever reason.
If you don't care if she becomes corrupted stateside, then it's your bed, your head, and possibly your life, papi alemano.
So since she's denied, you should stick to what I have advised you instead of reverting back of trying to get her sponsored again.
Or maybe you want human interaction 24/7 with somebody whom is genuine such as she, which could change if you don't take the advice we had given
to HA poster RobinHood for his Bulgarian superstar hottie.
PS: That's why I don't have kids stateside because I was precocious enough (and lucky too) as to why I am fatherless. I guess that I have "morally-superior" genetics after all.

We all read and understood your circumstance with the kids and we think you are making a mistake, PERIOD. But if you have not experienced the devastation of bringing a foreign women to the USA, then you don't understand.
On a more advice-giving note, I think you should retain the services of an Immigration Law attorney who can assist you through the process.
An attorney because of a delay at the service center? All that will do is burn another four figures out of his bank account. Save the attorneys for problems like the fiance is a mother, thus has a marriage either known or unknown, through identity theft, to her in the Filipino records.
+1. If the visa is routine, but just slowed down with all the others in the same boat, an attorney is unlikely to help you- but will be glad to take a suckers money. If you have special problems in the process, it is far more effective in my experience, to cultivate a helpful person in your congressman's office who deals with constituent affairs including immigration issues. I had those kind of issues with my first wife's visa when I lived in Arizona, and a woman in my congressman's was an absolute superstar in going to bat for me.
>>> This route may not work if you live in a Democrat congressional district, but still worth a try. The staff in many Democrat districts is only interested in helping with immigration issues if it is about helping some illegal alien. (undocumented Democrat)
They may make it clear that they have little interest in helping a regular US citizen bringing a wife from overseas. By contrast, Kelly H in the conservative Arizona district I lived in at the time was a beautiful, feminine young staffer and absolutely rocked when it came to helping me out. All of the points I touch on are not unrelated.
I wouldn't listen to any of these guys. The US has f***ed up women, but living anywhere else except another 1st world nation can be brutal, maybe even dangerous. f**k that. Bring her here, she will be fine....If she was raised with the right values that women here no longer get, she will be just fine...Everyone changes, but no one does 180 like that without something serious causing that.
