Must be present?

I'm submitting my 1-130 at the Bangkok field office shortly. Do I need to be present for any phase after that? Reason being I need to head back to the states to start a job. I can only find information stating that I need to physically submit the first step.

You only need to have legal residency  in Thailand when you file the petition.

That I know, as I have legal residency now. What I'm asking is can I file, then leave the country or do I need to be present during any other step of the process. I don't want to have to fly back here.

You can leave anytime after you file.   I'd recommend personally filing the petition.   I did that and they reviewed it right in front of me.

You do not.  

 

We did what P&M did (filed in person) They went through the I130 package on the spot, told me it was accepted, and told Nita they would email instructions.
