Please pay attention to your contract before signing it. There is no such thing as a free green card. The money for it will be coming from your pocket, not the agencies. In most cases, there is about $5 per hour taken from you... Read More

    I don't think breaking your contract will help, as you need to have the NCLEX first and an immigrant interview scheduled in order to not be affected by the retrogression. Perhaps ask this question in the "Questions for Suzanne4" thread as she can give you expert advice.

    What have you signed?
    You say you have a date in November this year. A date for what?
    No NCLEX, no VSC?
    Sounds to me like you are not very far along in the process.

    Have you tried contacting them regarding expecting you to sign a new contract despite you signing up with them 10 months ago? Personally I would discuss with a lawyer as I don't think it is fair of them to change things and expect you to sign, it should start from the new ones joining not the ones already committed

    With passing of CGFNS exam, the petition process can actually be started, it does not require that the nurse pass the NCLEX exam first.

    What they are asking you to do is illegal, your petition was first approved, if submitted, based on what was in the original contract. Not all of their amendments, and they are known for doing that.

    I suggest that you contact an attorney as soon as possible, and not theirs, and get their opinion.

    Please be aware that OGP does charge a cancellation fee once you have signed with them, even if you have not taken the exam, in the past it was $8000, not sure what it is now.

    But contracts are two way, both parites have to agree, and if you do not agree with the new one, then do not sign it.
