My friend just started his immigrant visa processing (F1 category) and has completed the AOS and in the process of submitting the DS230 and documents. In the mean time his Petitioner (his Dad) is living in the Philippines. Should his Dad be back to the US by the time the consulate calls them for the interview? Would the consulate verify the where abouts of his Dad? I told him to be safe, his Dad has to comeback now to the US. Pleases share your experience regarding this matter. Thanks.
