Pending I-130 Petition for Brother who is applying for C1/D Visa

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I need your input/information based from your own experience, friend's experience, family's experience. I submitted I-130 petition last year for my brother who lives in the Philippines, but work as a seaman abroad. I am already a U.S. citizen. He is now back in the Philippines and his agency is applying for a C1/D visa. Apparently, it is the first time for his agency to encounter this type of situation that my brother has (a pending I-130 and the same time applying for C1/D). My questions are:

1) Would it be a problem that he has a pending I-130 petition and his agency/company is applying a C1/D visa for him?

2) What will be the best reason to put in his application, as his sister, the reason why I petitioned him?

3) Isn't enough that he is my brother/family the reason why I want him here in the U.S.?

4) My brother is in the process for submitting his C1/D visa application, but his agency/company needs a good, valid reason why I am petitioning him. What is/are your suggestion(s)? Reason(s) why should I petition a family?

5) My brother's agency/company is afraid/not sure if they submit his C1/D visa application, U.S. Embassy in the Philippines will deny it because of my pending I-130 petition. Do you think this will be a problem?

I really appreciate for everyone's advice, suggestions, comment, ideas.

Regards,

Asmeen

Not a problem especially given how long it will take for your brother to get an immigrant visa (>20 yrs). He just needs to answer yes to the question asking if anyone has ever submitted immigrant petition on his behalf.

He doesn't need a reason why you petitioned him - that's not a question on DS-160.

Thank you very much, Milimelo, for your response. The thing is, his company/agency, wants him to put in his application why I am petitioning him. It is a pain in the butt. As I have said, this is his agency/company's first time to encounter this type of situation. What is your suggestion a reason why I am petitioning him? It seems like it is not enough reason that he is my brother/family. At the time I submitted my petition for him, the form I-130 did not ask me for a reason why I am petitioning him.

Then just explain. The company wants it in case your brother "jumps off the ship" that they won't be held accountable.

Tell ttem you're petitioning him because you want to / can. None of their business.

kzielu,

When I filled out the I-130 petition for my brother the USCIS did not ask me any question about the reason why I am petitioning my brother. It is his application for C1/D visa (visa for seaman) that asked him the question the reason why I am petitioning him. It is the US Embassy from the Philippines required him to do, not on my part. Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate it.
