Hello everyone,

First time post here! Please be nice :-)

Here is the short background: My daughter, petitioned me but not my husband because my minor daughter (they are in Philippines) needs a parent around as she still is still studying. I am petitioning for my husband but did not apply for my minor daughter because I was told that she will eventually be included in the process once visa for my husband will be available by submitting a visa request to the USCIS by him. Please correct me if I am understanding it wrong. Btw, I am a green card holder.

Now I have a dilemma, NVC just emailed informing me that they received the petition but visa is not available at this time and not eligible for further processing. I am not sure what does it mean. Priority date is May 23, 2014.

My questions are:

1. Do I need to send a separate petition for my 17yr old daughter?

2. Should I worry about the NVC letter? Does it mean my petition has been denied?

3. My husband is undergoing dialysis once a week. Should I inform USCIS about the situation to expedite the process?

Please help.

Thank you all.

Just need to wait for a visa number to be available.

Nothing to expedite yet. Why would an expedite be appropriate?

I'm sorry but you can't file an expedite. As an LPR they have to wait for a visa to be available. For F2A that's about 2 years. You can possibly do an expedite after the PD is current to make the NVC and embassy process faster. Also you're right, your daughter doesn't need an extra petition, but she does need to be included in your husband's petition.

This does not constitute legal advice.
