Does this sound correct? Jesus, even I would be missing her family way before than.

I am hoping this is some kind of general answer to prepare ladies for worst.

Could all the requirement take that long ? :blink:

Advance parole document will give her the chance to visit the Phils! When you submit you're AOS application don't forget to file I-131 form ( Application for travel Document)! You can go visit the Phils as long as you have approved I-131. No need to wait for 2 years.

You can return to the Philippines as soon as you have you Travel Permit( Advance Parole) when you apply together with Adjustment of Status and EAD after marriage. It took mine 56 days to receive my Advance parole to travel .And took 3- 6 months to receive Green card as well depending on each application.

Good Lord. Why would they tell them that? Sheesh. As if the beneficiaries don't already have enough to worry about. :angry:

From what I had read last year, it seemed like that was the point of the CFO to try to convince folks from leaving the PI

Either that or they simply do not know the laws/procedures. I'm guessing a lot of both, but that's just my opinion.

This is my opinion too. The problem is... these instructors speaks to these future immigrants as if what they say is law. And many actually believes it.

Most of these instructors have probably never even lived here in the US.

And heres another opinion... These CFO seminars is actually just another way for the Philippine government to extract money from Filipinos one last time before they leave the country and go on to become future citizens of another country.

Oh wow. You have to pay for a CFO seminar? I wonder if there are other countries that make you take a seminar before you leave?
