    We met while I went to Haiti to volunteer and he was the translator and volunteer coordinator for one of the NGO's we worked with. We stayed in touch and I went back a few months later and we taught English together at a community center.

  1. Please be aware things are moving much slower with office closures and embassy closures (except for emergencies) so timelines are going to be much much longer. 😞
  2. Are you able to obtain COBRA insurance for your family so you have coverage? It’s typically expensive but better to have something then nothing especially with a child.
  3. Nothing anyone posts on VJ is my headache; I’m merely here to help others, how I can, who are navigating the immigration process as I know there are so many questions, misconceptions and uncertainties. This site was helpful and comforting when I was gong through the process. No need for anyone to be snarky. Maybe I should have been more clear in my response; the totality of the circumstances will be looked at when petitioning for your parents and the ability to provide them health insurance is now looked upon. I will assume being an older student on Medicaid means you probably won’t meet the Financial requirement to petition your parents. Again, not my headache but yours to figure out how you will meet the requirement. Your sole use of being on Medicaid is not the “be all/end all” of bringing your parents here, however, your ability to show you can sponsor them is. “If you sign Form I-864 on behalf of any person (called the intending immigrant) who is applying for an immigrant visa or for adjustment of status to a lawful permanent resident, and that intending immigrant submits Form I-864 to the U.S. Government with his or her application for an immigrant visa or adjustment of status, under INA section 213A, these actions create a contract between you and the U.S. Government. The intending immigrant becoming a lawful permanent resident is the consideration for the contract. Under this contract, you agree that, in deciding whether the intending immigrant can establish that he or she is not inadmissible to the United States as a person likely to become a public charge, the U.S. Government can consider your income and assets as available for the support of the intending immigrant.” https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-864-pc.pdf?download=1
  4. Do you have a joint sponsor lined up? Also have you thought how you would pay for your parents health insurance as this would be a large expense.
  5. If her family being at the wedding was most important you should have gotten married in the Philippines. Having my family was most important and that’s one reason we did the k1 (I’m the American) They are welcome to apply for a visa if the consulate is even open but don’t expect them to obtain one.
  6. Your sister should apply at grocery stores, ups, fedex, Amazon, wholesale distributors; surprisingly many places are hiring.
  7. Medicare is for the disabled and elderly; you meant Medicaid. You are correct you don’t qualify for that. Some states have opened up a special enrollment period for people to sign up for insurance ; you don’t have your state listed so I can’t help further with that. have you tried applying at grocery stores, Amazon, fed ex, ups, Walmart, and wholesale distributor? In my area they are hiring like crazy.
  8. No need to attach a letter explaining, in my opinion. Chat logs also don’t hold much weight I would focus on submitting proof of time together.
  9. PLEASE take extra precautions in NY- it’s getting really bad.
  10. No one can tell you. Things are getting bad and I predict there will be delays with immigration. That’s all someone can do- predict. Even USCIS can’t tell you because things are changing by the minute, literally. I’m not sure where in the world you are but unlucky would be unable to breath at a hospital with no more ventilators left or dying on a hospital floor because there aren’t any beds. Coronavirus is serious.
  11. Hopefully someone can answer this as it may relate... are overstays forgiven for parents of US citizens?
  12. Why hasn’t your spouse visited you for your last 4 birthdays? That seems like it would have been the most logical and easier thing to do, no? Rather than rely on the US government to bring you together for your birthday.
  13. I saw a huge change- negatively- for Hartford. When I applied it said 8.5-13.5 months and now it’s at 8.5-19.5 months. 🙁 I would take it with a grain of salt though. They will always change and we know things will be moving slower with the Coronavirus. Don’t forget- the visitor visas aren’t processed in the US but at the consulate in that country so I don’t think that would “help” us at all.
  14. Your mother in law most likely does not qualify for Medicare. Has she been working in the US for 10 years?
