About CSPA pala, here's a link I found sa USE Manila website: http://manila.usembassy.gov/wwwh3228.html
I found this: CSPA (Child Status Protection Act) Age Calculatorhttp://www.viet.ws/CSPA.html~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
, why hindi kasama yung baby mo sa petition? If you have included her sa forms mo I think makakasa mo sana cya. But I think maybe the petitioner can call USCIS to expidite the process sis. Describe the reason why they will grant you to expidiate the case. Maybe hardship? Medical reasons...You can't leave your baby behind when you already have a deadline on your visa.
After they grant you na e-expidiate ang case ng baby mo sa USCIS, they (USCIS) will transfer your baby's papers sa NVC. When NVC has the physical papers na of your baby, you can then asked NVC to expediate your baby's case para e-transfer nila sa US Embassy Manila yung papers nya. Here's a format on how to asked to expidiate sa NVC.To request an expedite from NVC:
1) Call NVC and tell them that you received an Expedite Approval from USCIS. They will ask for your case number.
2) You will be asked to send a Doctor's letter by snail mail to a NVC Supervisor.
3) Ask if you can Fax or Email the letter instead. Email is an option but they do not tell you unless you ask.
4) Your email must:
be addressed to the USCIS Supervisor given to you during the phone call and contain:
a) Email subject line "Attention Supervisor (supervisor's name)
a) your name and birth date
b) your beneficiary's name, birth date and USCIS case number
c) A justification for your need of the Expedite service
d) the Doctor's letter explaining you medical condition "in layman's terms", if not doctor's letter, documents/evidence why you need to expidiate the case.
PPS: Once USCIS or NVC grant you expidiency, the process is very fast sa USCIS maybe a month or 2, sa NVC more like a week or 2. And once US Embassy Manila received the papers forwarded by NVC you can call them if sa schedule of your interview date and medical. I think a week or 2 din may respond kana. You can pay the AOS and IV Fee Bill sa Embassy na. I read someone who did this sa visajourney pinoy din. 48 days lang for USCIS approval, 8 days sa NVC process, after 2 weeks na nasa US embassy yung papers nila they had their medical and the interview was schedule a week after. Pretty fast dba?~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
