Death of US spouse

24 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all. It has been years since my last visit, and sad that I have to get back online in these circumstances.

My wife -US citizen- recently passed away. I am a Permanent Resident and know that it won't be affected, but do I need to inform USCIS about the death of my wife?

First, my condolences on your loss.

Payxibka, are you quite sure? The USC spouse would be the primary sponsor for the I-864. If USCIS want change of address info as appropriate for anyone who's signed an I-964, wouldn't they want notification of her passing as well?

I am sorry for your loss.

No, you don't have to inform USCIS. The only effect it has on you personally (immigration wise) is that you will have to wait with your naturalization until the 5th anniversary of your Green Card.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

I am quite sure... The I-864 becomes null and void upon the USC's passing... FWIW, their is no form to notify the USCIS of this situation...

Oh so sorry

No you don't have to notify anything it only will impact you in the time you have tonwait for your naturalization. You should wait for five years instead three.

And again I am so sorry sincere condolences

OK thank you all. Yeah I imagined that it wouldn't affect anything cuz I'm a LPR. When it happens during filing for AOS it's another matter of course.

Good, one thing less to worry about.

Again thank you all for your sympathy.
