I am starting a new thread to track cases from NVC - embassy to GC. The best news for RN in China, Phillippines and India has been great and informative thread, but I think it is more appropriate and convenient if we start a... Read More

    Yes, i agree with the above statements. There might be something wrong with your documents or some delays in paying the bills during the process. why dont you try asking your lawyer or agency regarding these matters? I am sure they can answer all the things/questions that bother you.
    I applied in Cebu September last year, it was a direct hiring though my employer is connected with one of the agencies here in the Philippines ( i think it is a requirement). My first application in USCIS was denied according to my lawyer ( i failed to ask the reasons behind). So, instead of getting a PD before October 2005, my PD now is April 2006. It took 3 months before I got my approval in USCIS. My case in the NVC was completed October 16, 2006. I am sure I could not get any slot for the embassy interview because of my PD. Well, im quite devastated, but I am sure I can leave this country in God's time. So, just keep on praying and be optimistic.

    Thank you for the nice note.

    If your first petition was denied, it is usually because the attorney did not submit all of the required documents that needed to be provided by the agency.

    Are you a direct hire with a hospital, or an agency?

    I was hired directly by the hospital. But during their visit here in the Philippines, they had an agency with them (Philippine based). Thank you....

    In my case, I have direct communication with my lawyer. If I have some questions/inquiries, I emailed her directly and got a response at the same day or after couple of days. Before, I used to email the HR officer of my employer or call my agency here in the Philippines, but they gave me the email add of my attorney to answer all my questions with regards to my petition.

    Hello REP and Suzanne,
    I am already here in the San Jose California, USA. I took the AOS route. My lawyer filed the my and my family papers (my family is still in the Philippines on April 6,2006. Approved I-140 and I-1485 May 6,2006. Got EAD and advance parole also May 6,2006. Got my green last August 18,2006. My family's pocket 3 completed last September 7, 2006 they have same priority date as mine May 6, 2006. Unfortunately my lawyer is charging me another $1000.00 to help us process the papers in US Embassy in Manila, (my lawyer is based in L.A. Ca) but I didn't agree since is was stated in our contract that consular process is included, so to make the story short my lawyer abandoned us, so I am left alone to finished this process. I called US embassy in Manila they told me to wait 4 months(Jan 7,2007) for them to give a concrete answer. My family case number is MNL2006xxx021 EX priority date is May 6, 2006. Is my family affected by retrogression even though I have my green card now? By the way I called NVC they don't have my family file with them.

    You can file the visa processing on your own without the help of the lawyer. And your family will be affected by the retrogression. I am sorry.

    Hi Rep,
    Thank you for the quick response? The US embassy in Manila told us not to pay yet the visa processing fee ($480 each )for my family according to call agent I spoke with. I find it strange, since what I am reading in this forum, they paid before Pocket 3? Any comment.Is this the reason that the processing of my family's visa is so slow?

    If you were process separately that could mean that their visa fee bill have not been paid yet. I think you can get a lot of information from the NVC than the US Embassy since it is the NVC that does ther visas processing and the interview schedule. Just my opinion. You can email NVC regarding this and I am sorry i forgot the email add of NVC. when yo9u write NVC please include your case number.

    Yes, your family is affected.........they cannot be on your visa as you were in the US, and they needed to be in the US to be included on your visa.

    When family members are not included on your petition, and they were not, since they have to go thru consular processing, it will be two years before they will get a visa for here, at the earliest, since they are your dependents.

    Anytime there is family involved, and they are not in the US with you, I always recommend that the nurse do the process from their home country as the family will be waiting longer to join them. Consular Processing should have been done for you, not the AOS route, at least in my opinion.
