My fried was divorced with two kids that are in the Philippines. She's been here you 8 years and out of status (overstayed longer than the I-94 stated. She got Married last year to her long time BF who is a greencard holder. He filed for petition for her on Feb of 2014 and for her two kids on April of 2014. The petitions got approved. Today she got a welcome letter from NVC. The processing embassy is in Manila, but she lives in the US. Can she request for the Interview here in the US. If she goes home to the Philippines she will face a 10 year ban. Please lt me know what are her options. Also will the kids have any problem since they are on seperate petition?

If her friend is still a green card holder she is in trouble, overstays are not forgiven for spouses of green card holders so she can't interview in the states and when she leave she will trigger a 10 year ban . Her kids are more apt to get visas than she is.

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

lpr-stuff only do-able for aos

if and when

the priority date for the casefile becomes current

and if and only if

she maintains her visa status.

study the visa bulletin, see what's what.

since she has an overstay, she not maintain her visa status.

marriage was for love? or something else?

Is the petitioner not yet qualified to apply for Naturalization?

He became eligibale for Naturalization 7 years ago, but he doesnt want to become a US citizen. I guess her only option is for her kids to come here, wait untill they are US citizen and the kids petition her?

Well, I don't see how the children can immigrate without the US embassy knowing her real status.

Being married to a USC is the only option I see for her.
