Securing your UK Marriage Visa
I have touched on this a few times in other posts and pages. Congratulations on your news and I hope everything goes really well. I would suggest you prepare for your visa now by contacting the UK Visa office in the Philippines
Based on what you have told me you should not have an issue, especially if you were married legally prior to your application being filed.
I would suggest you relax and once you start the process if you have specific questions please ask. The idea of section 8 should not be required as the immigration Act of 1971 as enough provision to allow your wife and child to join you in the UK.
