I-130 Question

Timeline

An expat friend of mine just arrived here in the United States after working in the RP for 20 months. His contract in the RP is over with and he currently has no job. He married a Filipina with 3 kids while on assignment over there. He wants to petition his wife and her 3 kids using an I-130. Is the correct filing he should use? Or does someone else have any suggestions? Also he is a little concerned about filing anything without a job, and doesn't plan to look for one for about a year. His wife and him have a house in the RP and he is on some paperwork showing ownership? and they have other joint accounts in the RP. Also his 2008 tax return shows earnings of $174,000 for the year. His 2009 earnings are already at $80,000. He wants to file his petition here in the U.S.A and then fly back to the RP in August and basically sit on his butt for about 8 or 9 months and do nothing but relax. Can he do this and still start the immigratation process for her now? or should he wait? He said he might take a job in Japan or somewhere else close to the RP if he likes the terms, but mostly just wants to relax. Whats his best option?

Thanks in advance for any advice, I told him he needs to sign up to Visa Journey, but he's an old fashion type dude that still hasn't completely embraced the internet.

he can petition here... an I-130 for each.... he will not have to prove financial support ability until after the petitions are approved...


YMMV
