I am petitioned by my US Citizen WWII Filipino Veteran Father. My priority date is 12/08/1995 and approval date is 01/08/1996 filed here in US Embassy Manila, Philippines with a category of F1 and I marry last January 25, 2005. My father sworn as a US Citizen here in US Embassy Manila, Philippines. But he did not go to the USA because of his age that he is alrealdy at his late 70's at that time he sworn in and no close relatives to live with in the USA. I am a holder of a valid tourist VISA and planning to go to USA on October 16, 2010. Does it mean that my category be converted first to F3 and be current before I can file AOS through Sec. 245(i)? Does it mean that I have to look for employer to petition me or have an H1B to backup the affidavit of support requirements.
