Hi sissies! Mag start palangkami ni hubby this January magprocess ng petition ko. Kami Lang 2 ang maglalakad. Although willing to help naman Sina MIL ko kasi based sa Australia si hubby for work for 1 year next year. We started researching and reading the usCis website. I admit Na-o-overwhelm ako sa process pero kakayanin naman siguro namin Ito without employing a lawyer. Buti Na Lang nakita ko tong thread, very useful talaga mga firsthand experiences and info Na Nabasa ko.

As long as kumpleto ang documents ninyo,
you don't need to get a lawyer,...
Just be sure na mag-assign ka ng isang address na reliable ang mailing system
para sa mga correspondence na darating syo,...

Good luck

We used the address of my wife in the US,
and di baleng magbayad kami ng Fedex or any other
parcel service na mas reliable kesa sa current mailing system natin dito,...
Mahirap isapalaran at baka maligaw sa local post office natin,..

Good luck,..!

Grabe! After reading the VB for February, I made a table kung kelan kaya kami (F4) magiging current. Our PD is Dec. 1996. I based it on a 1 month move per month.

Right now, its 01NOV88 for February 2012. So for DEC96, it will be on March 2020. Yey! 8 years nalang! ;D Lol!

Think positive.   8)

Malay natin bumilis in the coming months maging 2015 nalang for us.  ;D

The father of my friend who is the same F4 category,
kailan lang nag-current ang PD nya, and according to them 18 years daw nilang hinihintay yun,...
Good for them,..

Good luck,..
