I-130 -

Filed: Country: Philippines


I just completed the I-130 and was ready to send it off and I got laid-off from my job. I have been laid off for about a week now. My wife is in the Philippines. I don't want to submit the form with me being unemployed but do not want to lie about being currently employed. Has anyone had to deal with this? The prudent thing to do would be to wait until I get another job, I think. I can submit it as employed with my last employer and I am sure that I will be working long before the US Immigration checks. Any suggestions or experience with this?

I would say, go ahead and submit it. Dont lie about the unemployment. Put your previous employer with the from/to date. It doesnt matter if you dont have a current job right now. When it's approved and asked for Affidavit of Support and you still dont have a job (which i hope not) you can ask someone to co-sponsor her.

So submit it to save time.

Good Luck! and i'm sorry for the laid off- Life is tough right now. I am worried for my husband too, our case has been completed but the way it is right now - i mean the recession, makes me worry for him not to find a job right away when he comes. But we have to stay possitive. :)
