And your planning to bring you little brother here the same way?

Visa fraud written all over you. BTW are you still married or was that just a way for you to get a visa so your entire family could move here?

Why not stay in the Philippines? What is so great about the US that you want your entire family here?

you can do all the medical stuff here in the USA..

See link

https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=of...office_type=CIV

People should really consult a professional immigration attorney that has balls, and knows the law.. THere are way too many amatuers in this site that want to take the long way.

The public drain is what the affidavit of support is for.

Anyone can do what they want...

i am aware that you can 693 during a stateside adjustment. i am also aware that immigration, in general, is easier if you are already here. this is called "stacking the deck". trouble with support affidavits is that they don't cover many public services that taxpayers pay for, and the ones that are covered end up in a blood and turnips scenario all too often. America is just too nice to foreign freeloaders.

Hey my parent got their tourist visa months and months before I got my citizenship. So their intent was to visit the good old US of A and have some apple pie. They happen to change their minds and stay here on a permanent basis.. Like the 1000's of others in the similar situation.

They spent 10s of thousand of dollars here already on touristy stuff, and shopping.. Inputting into the economy. They got screened like everyone else at the embassy. Lots of people dont get the visa because they are poor.

To each their own..

lot of ####### telling me that one, buddy. my wife and i planned on getting married months and months before she got her visa.

on a tourist visa your parents have not had a medical inspection. if they are old and infirm they would have not passed it for immigration purposes, anyway. the assumption is that they will end up in public health assistance, a drain on the US taxpayer. look at me with a straight face and tell me you're gonna pay for their health care till they croak.

makes no difference how much money they spend here. they bought chinese ####### anyway, right?

If you think there are way too many amateurs in this site, then why are you asking for FREE advice here on VJ? You even asked what AP looks like. :bonk:

Why dont you pay and consult a professional immigration lawyer that has balls? Ask him whatever the hell you want.

Do you remember saying this on your old post?

"The I485 is quite pricey.. Is it least costly do file the I130 and have them do the visa processing in Manila?"

You're saying your parents spent 10's of thousands of dollars for shopping but you think I-485 is quite pricey?! :rofl::bonk:

We all know pinoys are resourceful peeps.. They have done everything in the book.. All's good.. stepping stones in life. Btw we did retain an atty just to make sure. And you? did you TNT? have a second spouse and illegitimate kids back home?

It's my cheap #### white spouse that did not want to spend any money... My parents forked up the bill. He's asking all those stupid questions..

Is your lawyer dumb that you need to double check everything here on VJ or youre dumb you cant understand your lawyer and you want to double check here?

Im assuming you can read so why dont you read my timeline and see if I overstayed?!

Your wife does not want to spend any money and you cant do anything about it? haha! Chicken. Or maybe because its your wifes money not yours. Dont you get it? She does not want your parents here.

After getting your citizenship, you have the balls to call your wife cheap ####? Nice! I wonder if you can tell her that face to face?!

Yes I have 12 kids from 12 different mothers back home. So what you gonna do about it?!

hi folks,

thanks for your interest and views..

now it's not that he intends to stay in the States illegally on tourist visa (even if he gets one). his main aim is to give Clinical Skill exam. After that he can go back to India and wait for his legal call of immigration. now we'll be getting married in India according to the Indian tradition, that's fixed. so getting married in the US is out of question.

Now, if he applies for tourist visa say in mid-dec'09(before our marriage in jan'10), he might get one, but he'll be coming to the US after marriage for his exam.. so his marital status will be changed when he appears at the POE.. can this cause a problem, if the officer at the POE asks about it (or he will definitely ask?).. if this happens at the POE, can this affect his immigration file (because he is going to immigrate ultimately afterwards, though not on tourist visa)..

There really is no way of knowing if he will or will not encounter problems at POE. It would depend on the immigration officer.

At POE, I was only asked for length of stay. Thats it.

I agree it is wrong and illegal, fraud it most definitely to enter on a tourist visa then adjust but.. how many have already done this without an issue? When I did my K1 little did I know all I had to do was jump on a plane, stay 90 days then say opps.. sorry I got married and adjust. From what I've seen and read a white european wouldn't have much of an issue adjusting. I can't honestly say if they'd take a difference stance from someone from India, Africa or Mexico depends the interviewer I suppose. They shouldn't after all they (USCIS) have no problems giving out visas and adjusting marriage between 50-60+ year old men and women in their early 20's 3- 30's. Not saying they are all fraud or bad or the men paid for these women or anything like that just saying there has to be a decent amount of fraud there.

Point to me is had I arrived over as a tourist married and adjusted chances are I'd been fine and I'd have saved a $hit load of time and money but instead I went the "correct way". You know what it sickens the $hite outta me when I see people and there is one that sticks out in my mind that did just the above. They even had the nerve to go home then come back in again on a tourist visa then got married little to no chance in my mind that wasn't preplanned! Fraud all the way and you know what they did all that while I was still waiting for a fuking work permit that never came by which time they where adjusted and I was still left waiting on my AOS! By the book they should have been ejected and put to the back of the line or barred due to visa fraud but no!

Anyway I would strongly suggest doing things the correct way. It would be sickening and hateful to get over adjust then have someone turn you down at the end of it all and yes you will be sickened along the way by what appears to be double standards in the system and you will get very pissed when people jump the line! Good luck with the tourist visa and with the marriage, coming over to the US. Ensure all your credentials are up to spec in the US so you don't end up working at wal-mart.

Sorry, I had to do that I don't normally do it but it had to be done. I'm just pissed that the system is basically a joke at times all these rules and there are massive holes in it that allow people through ahead of everyone else that paid, waited and did it by the book.

Let me try to get this thread back on track. The OP is not asking about circumventing the immigration process. The OP is asking about her fiance applying for a visitor's visa to take a CS exam. Requoted:

I am a US citizen girl and will be coming to India in January '10 for my marriage to a Indian citizen. Now my fiance is a doctor and he needs to give a Clinical Skills Exam (USMLE Step2CS) before June '10 in any case. Now, it's near to impossible for me to stay in India for 3 months. So, how he can reach the US at the earliest so that he can give the CS exam.. Giving this exam can be considered the first priority... Can he try for B1/B2 (visitors' visa) and if yes then when should he apply for the same? Can it have an adverse effect on the immigration petetion?

Thank you..

Yeah my sis got a tourist visa, if she comes here after college (3yrs from now) and decides to stay. thats up to her.

Visa fraud is when the folks from the region gets a tourist visa to enter the us with the intention of killing 100's of peeps in the name of your gods.. Let's go to a strip bar then you know how the story goes.. stock market crash, 2 recessions. high unemployment, y not you stay in iran, wear the burka, etc , etc , etc

That's the ultimate visa fraud.

And my point is you and your parent's are committing visa fraud.

And sis can't just come on a tourist visa and adjust like your parent's are TRYING to do, she is not an immediate category. Better start that paperwork now, at least a five year wait.

And same for little 14 year old brother, hope you have relatives to raise him because unlike you suggest in another post of yours you can't just bring him here and have him stay while he adjusts status.

Going to be kind of hard for your parent's to explain their moving here and leaving a 14 year old child behind.
