Question about my I-130 Petition for an unmarried daughter in the Philippines

I filed my petition for my unmarried daughter in the Philippines, who is over 21 years of age on 09/17/06. I am quite confused of which Family Preference Category my daughter belongs to, because in another forum they say she qualifies for the F2B category (LPR's filing for an unmarried child over 21), even if I am a US Citizen. I do believe I belong to the F1 category, because I don't want to get her hopes up in getting admitted to the United States earlier. Anyone has an idea? I come to ask this because I have just received the approval of her case last 07/08/10.

if you are a USC then she belongs to F1.

why did they say that she belonged to F2B? did you first file as a LPR and then became a USC? Even so, then you would call the NVC to change the category, since you became a USC.

No, I already was a US Citizen when I filed the petition. Oh well. Thanks.

But I'm still wondering why the F1 category for the Philippines takes longer than the F2B category. I should've told my wife (an LPR) to do the petition since it's faster.

How old was the daughter when the step parent/step child relationship was created? In other words, how old was the daughter when you and her mother got married?

The visa availability time difference is simply a factor of the number of other active petitions currently in the queue ahead of yours.

The reason for this is because there are more USC Filipinos who are petitioning their children than LPR Filipinos.
