hi everyone! we're just new here so could anyone please please help....

my USC fiance & i is almost done gathering all documents needed for our I-129F. we have a lot of concerns here...

i'm gonna start by telling you a bit of our history... :yes:

russell is born in the united states but studied in the philippines. he goes to the US every now & then but for just months. after studying... he managed to start up a business & it is still on going right now.

our relationship started back in 2004...we were engaged in 2005. & then...on may 2006 - my working visa as a LIVE-IN CAREGIVER to ontario,canada was approved. so i have to come here to canada to work. he accompanied me & then went straight to the US. he is now working but only for months..

after a month...my work back in ontario was a disaster so i opted to go here in vancouver in search for a job. but until now...3 months of searching...i don't have any luck but still trying to find one. several interviews was conducted but still...no work!

and because of all the hardships that we are going through - of being apart, we are now in the process of filing an I-129F petition. he went here last september'06 to visit me & let me sign documents for his petition.

we gathered all the documents listed on the GUIDE here... very nervous because we might have forgotten somethings or it may not be approved...

help us please... & now that i'm not employed here in canada...will there be chances of denial? my work permit is until may'07...will i be sent back to the philippines (my home country) for the interview or can i take it here in vancouver?

All the information you need to file is on the Petitioner. Unless you have been married before. If you have everything listed in the Guide you should be good to go. There will be more stuff to gather later in Consulate stage that will be help in the Philippines

Your country of permanent legal residence will have jurisdiction....

Let me clarify my answer... you can request the consulate/embassy where you currently reside but there is no guaranty and therefore no obligation for that consulate/embassy to accept your case. No harm in requesting on your i-129f form.

If you are legally allowed to remain in Canada, working or not, until May07, the Consulates in Canada should still take your case. Did you indicate in the petition that you'd like to interview in Canada?

We did a 3rd country interview.

They will consider it if you are legally resident in Canada.

I don't know enough about Canadian immigration to know if you are still in status there with your work visa if you are not working. For some types of US work visas, you would not be in legal status if you quit your job.

The Canadian Consulates usually require that you have 6 months forward legal stay. If your case gets to the Consulate when you still have 6 months legal stay, you "should" be allowed to interview there. Contact your Consulate's Immigrant Visa Unit for specifics about your situation.
