I think its best to keep your job. What if you are not approved at your first interview and then you don't have a job. I'm sure the money that you will make could help you out in the US or your family at home.

I just resigned..huhuhu...had to deal with all court proceedings,finality,nso etc etc..

God bless

I resigned as soon as we got our MNL case number. That was at least 3 months before I flew here. I needed the time to spend with my family, take care of personal things, enjoy the food and prepare for the medical and interview. I think it all depends on your priorities :)

It was a perfect timing on my part. I had my interview 2 moths after the graduation day of the preschool kids that I had been teaching and I submitted my resignation letter a few days after I turned over all the paper works.

I resigned about 2 weeks before my interview to prepare and make sure I have all the necessary documents and to spend time with my family.

I used to work for the Department of Tourism and they require at least 2 weeks notice since there's also clearances that have to be accomplished. In the Hospital, I resigned 1 month prior to my interview and with my clinics, I resigned 2 weeks prior to my interview. But that will also depend on the type of job you have, there are some jobs that needs at least 2 weeks to a month's notice prior to resignation to give them ample time to look for replacement and for the turning-over of your position.

I was in private practice so I didn't really had a hard time dealing with resigning but I made sure that I had my visa in hand before I filed for postponements of my court appearances scheduled after I received my visa and before my departure.

My then fiance and I talked that he should give me at least 2 weeks after I receive my visa to sort out everything with my work and leave my clients in good hands before I depart.

Removal of Conditions :

August 16, 2010 - Petition received by USCIS Vermont Center

August 20, 2010 - NOA1 received

October 4, 2010 - Biometrics

January 3, 2011 - Permanent 10 yr. Green Card Received.
