Hi Guys, I just wanted to know what will happen to our case if the petitioner becomes a US citizen. Does she need to update the embassy regarding her status from GCH to USC? Does our petition for F2B will get prioritize and move to current?Lol. I just wanna know if there is a valid process. Our priority date is 15Nov2010 so it’s gonna be like 10 years in Nov2020. Currently my 2 siblings and I have a multiple entry visa so we could visit our mom anytime we want. Thanks for reading

If the petitioner becomes a USC and you remain unmarried then it becomes F1 and unless you are from Mexico or the Philippines your priority would be current. You would turn be invited to submit relevant documents to the NVC and complete the visa application form. 

 

I know you are desperate to live here any way you can. You mentioned a K-1 yesterday. That would be the fastest of your available options. It looks like you are used to doing things very fast, given the speed with which you have gone from meeting your boyfriend for the first time to wanting to file a K-1. But nothing in immigration is fast. It requires a lot of patience and long-term planning.

What do you mean when you say your priority would be current if you are from the Philippines? How would the process works? Does it need to re-apply?

The above poster meant your PD would be current if you were NOT from Phillipines or Mexico. Are you from Philiipinies? If so, updating the citizenship status saves around 6 months of wait time but not make it current. Your wait time would reduce from another 3 years under F2B to 2.5 years under F1. However, it keeps fluctuating. If your case is already at NVC, may be not do anything for now and when it becomes closer to being current, say in 1-2 years, upgrade to F1 or opt to stay on F2B depending on which one is becoming current faster.

Thanks for the info. Yes I am from the Philippines. I guess we shall wait until the PD becomes current. I have a friend who is now in the US with F2B category and she went there like last year together with her 2 kids and she waited for like 10 years and 6 months due to backlogs. So I am praying and hoping that maybe our PD will show up. 😊

I said UNLESS you are from Mexico or the Philippines your PD would he current. So if you are from Mexico or the Philippines your PD would NOT be current.
