Thanks for your feedback. She didn't. Do you have any idea how long it takes?

If she is unmarried daughter of Green Card Holder then she is 2B, see below:


First: Unmarried Sons and Daughters of Citizens: 23,400 plus any numbers not required for fourth preference.

Second: Spouses and Children, and Unmarried Sons and Daughters of Permanent

Residents: 114,200, plus the number (if any) by which the worldwide family preference level exceeds 226,000, and any unused first preference numbers:

A. Spouses and Children: 77% of the overall second preference limitation,

of which 75% are exempt from the per-country limit;

B. Unmarried Sons and Daughters (21 years of age or older): 23% of the overall second preference limitation.

Third: Married Sons and Daughters of Citizens: 23,400, plus any numbers not required by first and second preferences.

Fourth: Brothers and Sisters of Adult Citizens: 65,000, plus any numbers not required by first three preferences.

I am trying to get some help in understanding whether daughter over 21 (recently widowed) would be considered unmarried under immigration law. My mother filed I-130 on her behalf.

was she already a widow when your mom filed for her and is your mom a USC or LPR?

Yes, she was a widow and my mother is LPR.


widowed or divorced means you're single again. I am divorced, my USC mom filed for me as a unmarried child over 21 of a USC. I had to provide a copy of my divorce decree.

because your mom is only a LPR, she'll have to provide a copy of the death certificate to prove that she is single, since LPR cannot file for married children, and there is a marriage license.

did your mom send a copy of the death certificate with the i130? she should have.
