Expired green card filing I-130

My father who is in India right now and has expired green card and it’s been over 18 months now.

U.S consultant in Mumbai told him to file I-130 via son or spouse. I’m US citizen filing for my father and he lived in US for almost 10 years and he wants to come back and make a visit.

My father who still has social security card and paid taxes for last 10+ years and house and cars are still under his name here in U.S.

The officer told him it would take 2 months. But as I started researching it takes 6-12 months.

Do I have to follow same protocol as someone filing for spouse /son who has never been to U.S? Can I send copy of his social and green card in the packet.

sorry, will be I-130 for parent.

Since yer a USC, you get 'top priority' - figure 6 to 11 months before Dad has his interview in India.

We've a guides section here - http://www.visajourney.com/content/guides

Pick one that you feel is best for yer father.

re: Immigration Specialist. 2 months? Really? Prolly confused with a 'tourist visa'. How much was the consult fee?

Thanks. Immigration specialist didn't charge anything since he made an appointment to see officer in Mumbai.

Victor visa and sb1 visa were not guarantee they said it depends on the officer and fees could not be refunded. They advised him to file i-130 via son or wife. Also U.S Officer working at us consulate Mumbai said once file is received it should take no longer than 45 days since you had a green card. I was surprised because it takes 6-11 months like you said.

well all the paper work is send to Chicago office lets see what happens.

oh - now I understand the confusion - it's all about 'time-ticks' - or what happens and when.

The officer in Mumbai is correct - ONCE IT IS RECEIVED IN MUMBAI.

But there's lot of stuff happening prior - ie -

(backwards)

NVC sends the casefile to Mumbai

Petitioner handles NVC Processing at NVC

NVC Receives Casefile from USCIS

USCIS sends the Casefile to NVC

USCIS approves the I-130 petition

Petitioner sends in the I-130 to the address in Chicago.

Whew !
