1 Marriage and registration on Mon Oct 31, 2011 2:25 pm

I'm a US citizen and my fiancee is a Filipina. We are planning on getting married in April. We have a pending K1/Fiancee visa in the works that we are hoping to get approved around April or June at the latest. I initially estimated that the K1 visa should be done by the time we wed but it's looking more and more like its gonna take longer than April. I know that if we get married I'm gonna have to change the status of our application and may cause additional delay.

My question is... If we get married prior to getting a K1 approval can we delay the registration of our marriage with the city hall or NSO? Do we have control over that or does it get registered automatically?

no, it is the solemnizing officer who is responsible for filing the marriage papers and he will be liable if he does not.

atty, paano yung mga late registrations? I've heard of cases doing late registrations after 15+ years... Any idea ano process ng US embassy? Do they check a marriage status on their own or look for marriage licenses or do they normally just accept what applicants bring with them like NSO-issued cenomar and what not?

it's known to happen, but it's not legal. the solemnizing officer can lose his license. i am not familiar with processes of the US embassy
