How will I know if my employer already filed me an immigrant visa?

I'm a nurse residing in Philippines with all the needed requirements (except visa) to work in the United States. I recently got my NY license. I have 2 agencies. I am in doubt of the 1st agency because they told me couple of months ago that they already filed me in US embassy, but I still haven't got any proof (notice of receipt). I followed up my request couple of times, but they always fail to give me a copy of the certain document. My 2nd agency already interviewed me and said that they will be processing my immigrant visa, but i'm quite puzzeled about it.. I don't know if it will cause conflict. So i like to know if there is an available option to check my status (if there is) in US embassy. Thanks for your reply!

First, there is a series of steps that they need to go thru. And visa petitions do not get filed with the US Embassy, they only get to the Embassy when you are set for your interview. What is submitted for you is a petition, the immigrant visa is the green card that is issued once you have been given approval to work and live in the US.

You cannot have two petitions pending with the US government, that will automatically cancel both of them out if found out by immigration. And be aware that many of these agencies have large cancellation policies in effect. If they are filing for you, they are spending money on you and are not going to be happy.

This is not an acceptable practice to be doing, if you are going with the second agency, then you need to send a certified letter to the first agency to cancel what ever you signed.
