Question about entry on the DCF visa

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok now I am thinking worst case sccenario here, but I was a girl scout and always have to be prepared! I know you have to enter within 6 months on the visa's we are getting, but is there any rule on how long we have to be there for? If my daughter's case does end up going to trial, my son and I will have to enter on our visa's and then return to Oz to wait out her case and visa. Are we allowed to do that?

Oh, and yet another question... who can notarize the I-864's?? Can that only be done at the consulate or can we get any public notary to do it?

Ugggh sorry for the last minute panic, but TIA!

You can get the I-864 notarized by any notary public. We got ours notarized at our bank.

AussieAmerican,

You can take the next flight out, if you want to. Just be sure that you don't abandon your newly-gained LPR status in the process.

In anticipation of your follow-up question - invest in a brief consultation with a US immigration attorney.

If you are not in USA, your best bet is the consulate/embassy for US public notary service.
