i have 2 kids and want them to be with me to US. If they go with me, can they go back immidiately to continue their studies here in the philippines. My eldest is already in highshcool while the other one is a preparatory. My youngest is 4 years old. Would they be granted a permit to study by United States to continue their studies here in the philippines. Financial reason is why i wanted them to finish their studies here.

im not married but have a girlfriend and we live together. Do you think my visa would be denied if i tell the intervirewer that we live together though we are not married?

I Badly need your advice.

More Power!

They don't care who you live with, other than she won't be able to get a visa as your girlfriend.

How long do you want your kids to continue studying abroad? Re-entry permits are usually only valid for two years.

If you are the F2, why would information about a girlfriend be of importance, aren't you trying to migrate to the US. The GC cannot be used as a visitor visa for the children, they will have to maintain residence in the US to be able to maintain their GC aswell.

Something doesn't seem right with this senario, but I can put my finger on it right now.

As long as you are not married, there will be no problem with the embassy.

You have a lot of options here :

1. Bring your 2 sons here and apply for re entry permit so that they can go back to the Phils. to study.

Cons : Re entry permit only last for 2 years and Immigration at the airport might question your 2 sons and get a warning for staying that long, away from US shores.

2. Leave the 2 kids behind.

Cons: You said that your eldest is in high school. Petitioning them will take about 3-5 years. Your eldest might be over age at that time. He will be classified from F2A to F2B. You know how long the waiting time for F2B, right?

3. Immigrate with your eldest and leave your youngest with his/her mom. After you get your green card, go back to Phils and marry your GF. Petition them (both your youngest and GF) immediately. The waiting time is 3-5 years. At least, you might have a stable job at that time and can support your family. This is what I did. I leave my GF and my daughter in the Phils, go back again after I received my Green Card to marry my gf. As soon as I arrived in the US, I petition them right away. You can see my journey below.

PM me if you still have questions in your mind. Goodluck.
