  1. I think Manila US Embassy is still not resuming full visa services according to their website. https://ph.usembassy.gov/visas/
  2. Hello everyone. My parents documents DQ's yesterday! Yey! Is anyone of you know how far can you reschedule an immigration interview once you receive an appointment? I want to accompany my parents during their interview in the Philippines. But my husband and I might be in Europe during that time. I want to know if we can reschedule an appointment interview maybe after a month of the original interview date? Thanks for the inputs!
  3. Hello, You can see the documents on the website below (under Step 7. Civil Documents, click the Documents Finder and select the country on the left). https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/step-1-submit-a-petition.html
  4. I am so appreciative of the informative and caring comments so far. I would like to bring this discussion back away from addressing scammers and the like to anyone else that can offer information directly related to the topic from their direct experience or knowledge that can be of additional help related to my first posts on this topic. There is no question that the man involved is the father. My friend (and I) remain positive and hopeful, since the father seems well established in his community in the Philippines and is as such known and reachable. My friend is working with an attorney in the Philippines to address paternity (which the father must declare with his signature in filing CRBA paperwork - and likely will need to be proven via DNA test) as part of the ongoing efforts to seek citizenship for my friend's daughter. The main challenge is convincing the father to finally do something right in support of his child who is a delightful, smart, well behaved young lady.
  5. We have done that but still it's not clear about this specific case and what they will ask for. Do you know a good immigration/citizenship attorney? or someone who has gone through this process with a deadbeat dad?
  6. Thank you for responding. There is no child support. He is a deadbeat dad. His name is not on the birth certificate. No DNA test done. He acknowledge the child "verbally" when the child was 2 years old but then gone again. We have a family law attorney in the Philippines but she isn't a specialist in immigration/citizenship law. We are ready to put pressure to the deadbeat dad but we want/need to know what he will need to do for citizenship paperwork, proof, etc. (So we can push him with those specifics) - We seek legal expertise re all that is required for proof and paperwork. We are seeking an immigration/citizenship attorney that can help with the evidence and paperwork needed. In the past we used Mac Ellis who is recommended through visajourney but he doesn't seem to be active anymore. Thanks for responding. Please see my response above.
  7. Hello,

     

    I was reading your post in 2012. I am not sure if you will receive this. But I'll give it a try since your case is similar to my friend's daughter. They are very close to me so I want to help them as much as I can.

     

    Here's the situation. 

     

    I am US citizen and I am helping my Filipina friend who got pregnant to an American man and abandoned her 10 years ago.

     

    My friend is a Filipino citizen, single parent and currently living in the Philippines with her daughter (10 years old).

     

    10 years ago, she met an American man and stayed together until they learned that she was pregnant and the American man left and never seen again. The American man didn't give any support to my friend and her daughter since my friend was pregnant up to now. They are not married.

     

    We want to know what steps/guidance my friend can do to for her daughter to get her citizenship. My friend knows where the location of the American man in the Philippines. He has his own family now and lives in Visayas area. We want to know what documents or process to expect in order for the daughter to become US Citizen. 

     

    Thank you for helping. This is a big help for the 10 year old girl to have a better future. My friend is not after the financial support. She are after the child citizenship (which is the child's right).

  8. Thank you and sorry for multiple posts. I was just hoping to get guidance.

  10. Hi guys, I need your guidance please. I am working on the affidavit of support for my parents. I am self-employed and not making enough income. My husband and I filed joint tax returns and he is the main source of income. What forms do we need to submit? We did our research and we learned that I need to fill out the I-864 form and my husband needs to fill out the I-864a. In addition, we will submit the Tax Return Transcripts. Is this correct? I appreciate your response and letting me know about your experience. Thank you guys.
  11. Hi guys, Quick question: Can I (petitioner) E-sign and fill out the DS-260 on behalf of my parents? Thank you in advance.
  12. Hello guys, USCIS just approved my parents application. Now I am waiting for further instruction from NVC. My question is, how will NVC contact me? Through the USCIS account or mail? Are they going to contact me or my parents? Thanks guys. Here's the timeline for both parents: January 31, 2021 - Form I-130 received April 17, 2021 - Actively reviewing April 19, 2021 - Case Approved
  13. Hello guys. Here's my n400 journey. Sept. 30, 2019 - Submitted N400 in D.C office March 2020 - submitted AR-11 Change of Address March 2020 - We moved to Florida March 2020 - received interview date schedule on April 13, 2020 in D.C office. March 2020 - received interview de-schedule July 2020 - received new interview date on August 10, 2020 1:45PM (West Palm Beach Office) The day of the interview in West Palm. 1:30PM - I entered the building. Then a guard checked my IDs and interview letter and asked me about COVID symptoms. Then I passed through the security (there were 2 guards checking the belongings) Then just few feet away is a staff and gave me my number and went to the waiting area. There were total of 10 people seating 6 ft away in that waiting area. But 4 of those people were just waiting for their certificate. 2:10PM - I am all alone at the waiting area 2:15PM - finally my number was called by the interviewee During the interview: The interviewee asked me to keep standing and raise my right hand to promise to tell the truth bla bla bla so help me God - I do. Then I sat down, the interviewee asked my passport, ID and my green card. I gave my Virginia Driver's license, passport and green card. We had a bit more conversation about my Virginia Driver's license, I explained why I didn't change my driver's license yet and it is due to COVID and my husband is a cancer patient so I don't want to take the risk of exposing myself at DMV to have it change. He kind a gave me a little hard time by talking how important it is to have my driver's license change before my interview bla bla bla but at the same time he is also nice - we were joking around and laughing. I also mention about the traffic violation I got in March 2020. He didn't give me hard time about that, he just copied the receipts about the traffic violation. Then asked me about the 5-10 YES or No questions from the N400 application. Then I read the sentence at the ipad and wrote the sentence he told me to write (very basic, nothing to worry about it). Civic questions are easy ( Who is the US President now? What happened at the constitution convention? I forgot the rest) Then, he hand me this white paper saying he APPROVED MY CASE!!!!! Yey!! He also scheduled my oath ceremony at the same day. Around 2:50sh PM : interview is done. 3PM: at the waiting area - a staff hand me my naturalization certificate and we went to another room (Oath taking ceremony room) . He gave us the envelops and the U.S Flag. And I AM DONE!!! 👏 I AM SO HAPPY!!! Good luck to you guys!!! Just hang in there.
  14. Wow! That sounds really easy. Good for you! Did the officer ask you question that's not in the n400 application? or they focus on the information we put on the application? Yes, thank you! I am going to have my interview on Monday, I'll keep you guys posted.
