help to upgrade case

20 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My documents are at the nvv, initially i filed for my wife with green card and attached my baby who is 9 months old to the case. I just received my citizenship and my fear to upgrade to ir1 is because they will remove my baby to the case. What should i do upgrade or not, and her priority date is current.

Hi,

You don't have a choice. You can not choose to not upgrade the case. You will have to disclose that you are now a U.S. citizen.

Don't waste time and money trying to go through the process as an LPR when you are now a U.S. citizen.

File an I-130 for your child. Include a copy of your wife's NOA2. In the cover letter, ask for an expedite.

Best of luck

Does it mean that i cant maintain the green card status?

You are a U.S. citizen. You are no longer an LPR. You can not maintain something you no longer have.

Your family can not get green cards in the F2a category.

YOU MUST UPGRADE. You do not have a choice. If you fail to inform the NVC or US Embassy that you are a U.S. citizen and proceed with the case as if you were still an LPR, you will be committing immigration fraud and create delays in getting your family here.

You need a separate petition for the daughter because once you become a citizen, your wife goes in to the Immediate Relative category which cannot have derivative beneficiaries. You should file the petition ASAP and have them expedite it because the mom has already gotten hers.
