    TB Sputum culture for 2 months

    Hello everyone! I am petitioning my mom from the Philippines, everything went smooth until she had her medical at St. Lukes Medical Center. She did her x-ray and they found out that she has some blurred on her chest and because of that she did some further test which is the Sputum Test. She went to St Lukes for 3 days to do the sputum test and thank God the result was negative. Just when I thought that everything was ok, they told her she needs to wait for 2 more months because of the sputum culture test. They will check to see if any bacteria will grow on her saliva. So my biggest question, IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A POSITIVE SPUTUM CULTURE EVEN IF ALL HER SPUTUM SMEAR WERE NEGATIVE??? Has anyone experienced this situation and what were the results. Any response will gladly be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello Guys, My fiance and I decided to do-it-ourselves to file for my adjustment of status. Our previous immigration lawyer (who worked to process my K1 visa) fee is just way higher than what we expected, specially with the USCIS filling fee too. All is good so far though. I have prepared the following: Cover Letter G-1145 I-485 G-325A I-864 I-693 I-765 Supporting Documents Passport Bio Page (photocopy) Passport Visa Page (photocopy) Birth Certificate Most Recent I-94 and Travel History (printed) I-129F USCIS Approval Letter (scanned copy - my fiance lost the original one! thankfully he scanned it and sent it to me thru email before) Marriage Certificate I have also prepared I-131 (Advance Parole) but I wasn't sure what to write on "Reason". Will it be acceptable if I write "To visit family"? And for the "Country to visit" I only wrote "Philippines". I was just wondering, when the time comes, can I still travel anywhere aside from Philippines? or is it something I need to include in advance? TBH, I am still thinking about submitting this since I am following US naming standard, and I want to avoid questioning. 😣 Another question, do I need to attached a copy of my Vaccination from St. Luke's Manila as supporting document to my I-693? Does my supporting documents such as Marriage and Birth Certificate needs to be original or can I send copies instead? Lastly, since I decided to follow US naming for now which is (Maiden first & middle Name (as used in visa) + husband's surname) will it be okay to write my married surname on all the forms instead of my maiden surname? That's all I can think for now. Please let me know if I missed any form/s or supporting documents. Thanks in advance!
  3. My parents did the medical on 2/1 at St. Lukes Manila. Mom passed and mY dad failed in tb xray and his going to do a follow up on his smear test. The lady who has given his result said that he can do a no show on his interview on 2/13. Is this okay or will i have to call or sched another interview appt or just wait for the follow up smear test results? I also want to know what to bring to the interview? Is there a dress code? Does anyone have a checklist on what to bring to the interview? Thanks a lot😊

    SLEC at St. Lukes Manila

    Hi guys. Can anyone share with me how many days they spent getting their stuff done at St. Lukes. Were you able to finish in one day with the procedures? Were you able to go back the next day and get your results or did you have to wait several days? I'm trying to figure out how many days I need to take off work. Right now we are going on the 29th. I just realized the 30th is Bonifacio Day. Does that mean we won't be able to get the results on the 30th? Please share any experiences you guys have had with the St. Lukes day. It's just my wife. No kids.. We plan to leave here by 2 am and get there by about 4 am to get in line.
