Hello,
Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.co.uk.
It was brought to our attention that you asked a legal question about the Philippines, where we do not have active professionals. As much as we would like to assist you, we have to be honest and say that the best we can do is maybe to provide a legal Internet researcher who might be able to find your answer. We realize that option is not ideal, and we always want to provide our customers with the best possible answer.
At this time, we'd like to give you the option of leaving your question open. Keep in mind that you're never obliged to accept an answer that you're not satisfied with, and you can try it out before you accept. Or, we can close your question page for you, if you prefer.
Please let me know how you’d like to proceed,
Nicola

Sorry about the delay on an answer for this

I was able to research a bit and here is what I found

CLICKH HERE for a site that discusses requirements

Unfortunately the main one that will impact him is the 10 year legal residence requirement (especially at his age). Most countries have this type of requirement, however. Even with marriage it would take time for it to occur (and cannot find for sure if would be under 10 years still or not - I think 10 years is still required).

CLICK HERE for a direct link to the phillipines government website with more information that might help as he begins this journey.

I hope this helps. I wish your brother in law all the best as he takes this next step in his life.. how exciting.

Please could you close this question, my Brother in Law has decided against this, it seems unlikely that he will now go.
Expert:  Mr. Wilson replied 1 year ago.

I will request - however, be sure to rate my response if you were satisfied as that is the only way that I receive any credit for my help today.

All the best to you and your brother in law
