  1. Hi Everyone, So let's start with the fact that my petition was filed a month before I was turning 21. (almost 2 years ago) Throughout the whole process I was advised that my category was going to be IR-2 and it was. My petition was USCIS approved and then I got DQed in May 2020. I had my interview scheduled for October 2020 at the London Embassy, I have gone through the medical examination and vaccinations which have been paid for and then a day before my interview the US Embassy in London called me and advised me not to come to the interview because I was affected by the Trump proclamations. Recently I have logged into the NVC CEAC and realized that my Visa Category have changed from IR-2 to F11. I thought my age should freeze at the time of the application and I shouldn't age out. Obviously I am worried on how long this process is going to take as this isn't IR-2 but F11. I have already submitted the NVC Contact Form to advise that the category shouldn't been changed to F11. This whole process created so much stress and loss of money considering my police certificates have expired as well as the medical examination. Can you please help? Did you guys came across this? I appreciate any help, have a great day.
  2. Hi we're going to apply an n600 for my daughter who got here in the US through an IR-2 visa, qualifying for the derivative and automatic acquisition of the US citizenship. During the process of this can my daughter travel outside of the country to study there? Would she be able to come back with no hassle?
  3. Earlier this year I relocated from the Philippines to Denver to work on the petitions of my wife and adopted daughter who turns 18 in October. The adoption effectivity date is Oct 5 2016, but was finalized February 29, 2020. Then we had to get new birth certificates from the Local Civil Registrar and the National Statistics Office. Once we had all of these, we were able to get her a Philippine passport with my surname. She picks it up finally today. Meanwhile, I filed an I-130 for my wife and it has been approved and sent to the NVC. So, my question is this... today I will finally have my adopted daughter's passport number and I can already file an I-130 for her. But, once her mom's visa is approved (3-5 months from now), how can I best ensure my daughter's petition will be approved and her visa granted at roughly the same time as my wife's? Should I try DCF exceptional circumstances or file at USCIS online then request they expedite it?
  4. Hiya everyone! So this is super random, but I haven't really seen many people who're independently looking after their CR2/IR2 cases/petitions. With a CR2/IR2 being for an unmarried child of a U.S. citizen who is under the age of 21. As which you would also file a I-130. I was just curious to know if there are people out there like me. Most cases that have a CR2/IR2 involved are usually younger kids whose petition's were sent in along with their parent[parent's]. Usually when I'm having quiet a bit of confusion with the NVC I would always have to primarily look into the CR1/IR1 category which isn't really the same thing as a CR2/IR2 visa. Anyway! If anyone has a similar case to mine please join this discussion! Or if there is someone out there who's having a bit of trouble with their case[cases] join the discussion as well! I've made it as far as to have a CC ( case completed ) and currently waiting for an interview, I'd be more than happy to help in any way that I can. 😊
  5. Hello All, I have a complex problem and I am trying to figure out the best way to deal with it. Background: My wife have been married for almost 3 years (6/28). My wife's green card expires (CIR-1) on (6/1). I'm in the process of applying for her I-751. She has two children, my step children, who still live in their home country. Ages 13 and 10. We didn't apply to bring them here initially because my wife wants to complete her nursing program first before she brought them here. This has taken more time than I originally expected due to her needing to go back and pass the GED and take ESL classes even though she is a Philippine college graduate and she is pretty fluent in English. Due to negligence at the Philippine consulate in Qatar, we ended up needing to use her maiden name ( passport ) on the visa. This passport expires in 2/2022. not close but not far way either. Dilemma: Money: As we all know these fees are quite burdensome and most of us look for any way we can to trim or combine things if possible. Time: Stepson's clock is ticking down. I want him to be able to attend US high school so he isn't hamstrung against joining the military like he wants to do. Stress: my wife is too worried about trying to juggle the kids, homemaker, studying and even some part time work, etc. Phil Passport - Green Card, SS number, in maiden name: Issue: I had hoped that once my wife obtained her USC after we file for her N-400 in July that we would be able to show her USC status to the embassy and obtain passports and citizenship for the kids while in their home country. After reading up on the N-600 page, the kids must be LPR's here in the US already to qualify. So now it comes down to how to optimize the filing process. Though process plan: We initially file for her I-751 and get that started. If we file for the kids I-130's before we file for her N-400 in June we can legally add the kids names to the N-400 form since it will not be processed in a year, before the kids arrive. From past experience bringing over step-kids, I have found their I-130's to be extremely fast tracked ( USCIS ~ 2months) and they were here within 6 months. Start to finish. This method saves us from having to file for the kids on the N-600. I am not sure on the cost for this form, I couldn't find a fee schedule on the form for it. Second idea: File the I-751 as normal. File the N-400 in July. Sometime after July but before she gets her citizenship apply for the kids I-130's. Most likely we won't be able to amend the N-400 to add the kids in time for a single process Most likely we will need to submit N-600 requests for the kids once both are present and wife is a USC. Q1: Any legal experts on this board that can tell me what we can and can't legally do in reference to adding the kids on her N-400 if they are not already in the USA. Q2: Would this cause the package to be denied if they weren't present and only she was? even if the kids were in the USCIS process stream, but not finished? Q3: Since they are too young to be required to take the oath of citizenship, I am wondering as long as they are in the process and unlikely to be denied due to their legitimate minor status, if this would be alright. Q4: any better solutions? Thanks for reading this book and commenting. Don
