申請美國F2簽證念公立高中

請問了解美國簽證程序的達人,以我要去美國念大學,申請F1簽證,

是我辦F1同時幫孩子辦好F2,

還是先辦F1,拿到後,再幫孩子辦F2好?

我先生沒有要跟我們一起去美國會有影響嗎?

會不會因為不是單親就覺得小孩不用跟我去?

如果AIT要面談,大概會問孩子甚麼問題呢?

我孩子去的話是升9年級,要15歲了,有甚麼風險要注意的嗎?

問題有點多,感謝您的協助。

謝謝各位協助;

我現在想跟小孩分別申請F1,

因為爬文看到美國境內可以將F1轉為F2。

一是小孩申請公立高中F1一年...轉F2繼續...

二是先申請私立高中,申請F2下來再轉學到公立...

不知各位專家們覺得是否可行?

網上看到的都是spouse, 沒有看到親子的例子,,,

    1. Your choice. No difference.

    2. Yes. This is why you must have your husband's written consent.

    If possible, the husband should be the parent bringing the child to AIT for interview (even interviewing together).

    Beside - your husband can also apply for the visa, but choose not to go later.

    3. Not relevant.

    4. Nothing much. Your child's visa approval is based on your chance of approval.

    As soon as you can show you have the money, the child will be fine.

    5. The likelihood of admission from a local public school and the time you have.

    The U.S. law does not prohibit your child from enrolling a public school. The issue is the local school can impose additional requirements (like local residence).

    Since you can only enter the U.S. 30 days before school start, it will be a difficult task for you to be settled, as well as your child's matters be taken cared. It will be more difficult if you don't know how to drive or have a car.

    Unless you have an existing support system (such as relatives and friends in the local area, or even your husband is going with you for a few weeks), it is best you take care yourself first and your child can come later.

    理論可行, 事實上, 你的大學願不願意讓你弄F2?

    一般F2較可能在研究生,若只是語文班或社大,大概難度很高, 你的大學,囡願意讓你簽F2

    F-2 Visa for Spouse and ChildThe spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 of an F-1 student are eligible for F-2 status, and may stay in the US as long as the primary student remains in legal F1 status.How to apply for an F-2 visa?Your spouse and minor children can apply for F2 visas, and either accompany or follow to join you in the United States.To apply for an F-2 visa, you need to contact your school's international student office and request a new I-20 for your dependent. You will likely be asked to provide documents to demonstrate the relationship, such as marriage certificate, birth certificate, notarized certification, etc. You will also need to show evidence of financial resources sufficient to support your family living in the United States. This may include bank statements, pay stubs, affidavits of support, and family savings in your home country.After receiving a new I-20, the F2 application procedure becomes very similar to applying for an F-1 visa. Your dependent needs to make a visa appointment at a U.S. embassy or consulate, and bring to the interview all documents mentioned above, plus additional information to support their request for a non-immigrant visa.Generally a child under the age of 14 does not need to be present at the F2 visa interview, unless specifically required by a consular officer.Can F-2 dependents go to school in the US?A spouse in F-2 status may not enroll in a full course of study, or engage in any study toward a degree program. An F-2 spouse may, however, take classes that are avocational or recreational in nature. This means part-time study for the purpose of pursuing a hobby or interest, such as cooking or tennis.To study full-time at post-secondary level, the spouse must change his/her F-2 status to F1, and may not attend school until the change of status request is approved by the USCIS.

    公立高中不發I-20,所以方法一不可行.

    方法二,你要保持學生身份4年,同時動不動就須開車接送小孩,4年實行下來會很累.那種累不是只有體力的問題,有時候時間上根本安排不過來.

    如果你的目的是讓小孩到美國念高中,又只能隻身一人陪讀,勸你還是考慮私立寄宿高中吧!

    念大學? 社區大學嗎? 如果是社區大學,又要夾帶孩子,你拿到F-1 visa的可能性就不高。

    你不要以為只要是美國的高中都是好的,要不然為何許多家長拼死拼活也要定居在好學區內? 好學區的房價高、租金高、生活成本高。

    照你的想法,最理想的是住家距離孩子的學校和你的學校都不遠,否則你是絕對忙不過來。

    我以前陪讀的時候,我的學校距離住家開車5分鐘到,兒子的私立學校距離住家大約20分鐘車程(不堵車),聽起來都很近,但實際上是~~我每天光是開車來回接送兒子,在路上就要1.5小時。

    所以我選課時只能選9:00~3:00之間的課程,否則就無法配合兒子的學校時間,而社區大學選課又非常爆滿,每次開學前選課時都煞費腦筋。

    我是對美國的生活和美國的學校是很熟悉的人,凡事都還覺得很不容易,請問你對美國很熟悉嗎?

    奉勸你不要把孩子的身分綁在你身上,萬一有事你不得不回台灣的話,孩子就必須跟著離開,這樣風險太大,三思。
