    Not sure we are following you. Usually, immigration lawyers files a client's petition on the 61st day of stay or if they want to be really sure - on the 91st day of stay.

    Anything below that has a good chance of being denied because it may be construed as having intent to change status rather than just visiting.

    Some are saying that even filing on the 61st day still has a good chance of being denied.

    You may refer to any immigration website or consult a lawyet for more details.

    It will be up to immigration as to what they will accept and not accept. Because of the impending retrogression, there are those that will be pushing it to the wire. Definitely will be denied if it is less than 60 days, no question about that.

    For the others, it will be up to USCIS, and they will make the determination on a case by case basis.

    In normal situations, most attorneys like to wait at least 90 days so that it doesn't look like the nurse came to the US specifically to stay and work.

    Ther I-140 is strictly approval of the actual job offer, it has nothing to do with family, dependents, etc. Only you. Any dependents that are wishing a green card must be included on the DS-230 form, or they will need to be processed later and wait for a full two years before being able to join you. As long as they were included on that document then they are okay and will be given a visa without the extra waiting time.

    If they were on the DS-230, then they should have visa for them.. But first question that comes to my mind, was their visa bill paid yet? Agencies usually pay only for the nurse, and not the family.

    Hi there,

    I am totally lost. I already have a case number MNL2006xxx. I recently received this letter.

    "As soon as an interview date has been scheduled, the designated representative of this case (attorney) will be notified. The US Embassy or Consulate General may require additional documentation at the time of the interview."

    Will I be affected by the retrogression and how long will it take to process everything?

    This is the packet 3 right? and Im just awaiting Packet 4?

    Your inputs will be highly appreciated.

    If you do not already have an interview scheduled, then you are affected by the .

    Nothing will be done until it is lifted..............probably not before next summer.

    If you had a date scheduled, and therefore had a visa reserved for you, it would have stated such in the letter.

    Hi anybody know if a green card application from saudi arabia would be affected? I can't find any info. I have a friend who started her green card while she was living in the USA was awaiting her work authorization and decided to go back to saudi arabia for a vacation. Due to a screw up with her childrens visas she could not get back but now she is being told she has to start the greencard process all over again. Can she come back to the USA?She is an RN BSN. My friend is a saudi/korean citizen.
