Quote from suzanne4
That is something that needs to be discussed with the US Embassy, since their file is already completed and why was it not asked at the time of the interview?
The baby is still going to need documents to travel with, and those are not immediate. The mother actually has only six months from when the visa was issued to arrive in the US or she loses the visa.
What exactly is happening now, how far in the process are they? Each of these posts adds in new information. Have they in fact been given visas already or is this just hypothetical?
There is still a restriction of having to travel within 6 months of getting the visa in any way.
Next question would be if they are given visas, why in the world would they not want the baby to be born in the US and get US citizenship right from the start? Makes no sense to me on this count either.
And the fact that the employer may not wish to wait that long and cancel the petitions, that also can come into play as well.
Hi Suzanne, thanks for getting back at my thread.
Anyways, aside from the fact that she already received a request notice from NVC on the updates of their DS230 and other documents, the rest of the informations are hypothetical. I suppose she is just trying to prepare in advance by getting some advice from those who had similar experiences before.
Also, I already suggested to them to ask personally the consul during their interview so they can be guided accordingly.
She told me the main reason why they plan to delay their travel to the US is that his husband has financial credits, which he owes from his employer and has until the end of this year to pay all of the debts; else, the company will resort to legal means which then will complicate or to the point even delay their travel to the US.
Hypothetically speaking, if they get their visas by July this year and if husband continues to work until December to pay all his debt, part of their problem is resolved. However, his wife has already given birth by November, which is gives them another setback. The wife canít just leave his husband then have birth in the US for they donít have any relative there and since the husband (nurse) is the one being petitioned by the employer.
Lastly, is it true that giving birth in California is free (under state insurance) for immigrants/green cardholders? Or this apply to certain hospitals or small clinics only? What are the qualifications?
