Hello, everyone.

First question - How long does the parent have to enter the US after IR-5 was received?

Second question - After entry, do my parents need to physically stay in US, waiting for the green card, or they can leave with the stamp in passport and i can mail the green cards to them after i receive them?


Thank You.

arrowBelarus/US passport problem

Here is the deal. My wife is a Belarus citizen and carries a Belarus passport, under her maiden name. She is now a US citizen and carries that passport under her married name. Both names are very different.

Previously she would travel to Belarus under her maiden name ( Bela passport) and just show her green card when returning home. Never a problem. Marriage certificate showing name change is sometimes necessary. No problem with that either

However, now that she carries both passports ( dual citizenship) I would hope the process is the same and just show her US passport in Minsk ( to show she can enter the US) and again at POE NY.

The question here is will that work since Belarus does not really recognize dual citizenship and MAY cause a problem on her return flight ( exiting Minsk).

Of course she can travel both ways on her US passport but that would entail getting a visa, which is silly, considering she is a Belal citizenship.

Anyone been thru this? Do the Bela  immigration people look the other way these days or do they create a hassle? Or do only the airline personnel really need to see her US passport in order to get a seat.?

Please do not compare this to either Russia or Ukraine as they have different immigration policies. Thanks for any help.

My wife and her son came here on a K1-K2 visa. He was 21 at the time. Now 25, he has been here just over 4 years..She received her citizenship on 7/14. Now her son wants to apply. May I assume that he does not need to be here for 5 years to apply? The options to check off do not apply to him but I can write down the info in the "other" box. Anyone been thru this and can help? Thanks.

I would like to know where can i get a detailed guide on how to properly petition to bring my parents to live permanently in US. I see that form I-130 needs to be submitted, but what kind of visa do they need to apply for? Please provide me with some guidance.


Thank You

We like the CR-1 option.... because of not having to file the AOS.  But after looking at the requirements to marry in belarus, was wondering Has anyone had any experience with marrying in Minsk...      I know i will need my passport, birth certificate, and my divorce papers.  All translated to Russian.   plus an apostille..   How easy/difficult is it to get these things done.... and am I looking at a massive cost?  


Would love to hear someone else's experience with this process.  


thanks in advance for reading my post.  have a blessed day
