  1. It would be nice if she can finish her first grade here and give her additional time to say goodbye to her friends and adjust to the idea that she'll be living in the US. Moving is a huge change for her too. But I also hate the feeling of being away from my husband and would want my family to be together asap. πŸ˜€ My husband already left too, to give him time to look for a job, get settled and prepare for me and my daughter's arrival. Can't help with your CR2 question though. My daughter got her US passport thru CRBA. But I also have questions about i-864 πŸ˜‚ Maybe if we can all post our questions here, we can help each other out (or somebody else who had gone thru the same thing might) 😊
  2. This is very helpful! Thank you! ☺️
  3. I renewed my passport Jan 10. Hard to set an appointment for passport renewal! Also attended CFO last Dec while waiting. We gave to go back for the CFO sticker once we get our visa right?
  4. Will probably sched an interview sa feb pa. Planning to leave by April or May.
  5. It is indeed faster to do DCF than the fiance visa route. Me and my husband originally planned to go thru the fiance visa route too until we realized that it would take me much longer to get to the US since he would have to get a job first, etc and then file for the K1 petition. K1 petition usually takes about 5-6 months (if you're already living in the US) but DCF should only take about 3 months max. Oh, and I was pregnant too when we were planning all this fiance visa stuff. We decided not to do anything until I gave birth. He filed CRBA (Consular Report of Birth Abroad) for our daughter which gave her US citizenship. That's another process you may want to research about (In case she wants to give birth here in the Philippines).
  6. Btw, congratulations myrrh130 on the approval!
  7. Have not set it yet. Still waiting for my new passport to arrive. We were not really in a rush but it was still nice to get the approval right away. When's your interview?
  8. Hey guys, just an update. We also received our MNL case number yesterday afternoon. I did not email them so we were pleasantly surprised to get it that soon.
  9. I emailed them last Dec 29 and was advised of the 3 months processing time. Thought of calling them by 1st week of Jan but decided to wait for a few more days. When @mrsrasco posted that she received her approval email, i figured i should get something too in 1-2 business days. You officially filed (paid) on Dec 14 right? If they do their work by the date filed you should hear from them before the end of the week too. Though they may have pushed back your application to when they received your missing documents. Hope you get it soon!
  10. Nope, I didn't call or email them. They sent the approval to the petitioner's email. You'll get your soon
  11. Hey guys, we received our approval notice yesterday afternoon now time to wait for the Mnl case number
  12. That's great! Hopefully we get ours by next week. :)0
  13. Hi myrrh130, Our appointment was 11:30am so we probably saw each other that day. We actually came in about an hour before our appointment but the person at the reception downstairs didn't give us a number for the queue and were just told to wait for my husband's name to be called at window 25. The process was quick for us, we had everything that the lady on window 25 needed and were told the same processing time. I would agree with @mrsrasco that the delay in approvals might be because of the holidays. I also sent them an email last dec 29 for an update (couldn't resist!) and all they said is that it is in process and that normal processing time is 3 months (sooner than that i hope). Will keep you posted
  14. Thanks Dave! Will probably call them first week of Jan and for the meantime just enjoy what's left of 2016. Haha
  15. Hi, Anyone here who filed DCF at the US Embassy Manila recently (past two weeks). We filed ours last Dec 13 and we're eagerly waiting for the approval. I understand that there will be delays because of the holidays and all but would like to know others who are on the same timeline as ours. I know some gets approved within a week and others in a month. Would be nice to get an idea of the current processing time for DCF in Manila
