HELP FOR SISTER

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am hoping that someone will be able to help. I have a friend who filed for his sister years ago

finally she was scheduled for her interview this year and has since gotten married. They got a letter

from USCIS/NVC stating that her status has changed because she is now married and has to wait for

several years. Any advice on what we can do at this point? it is so frustrating

All she can do is wait now, she got married. Should have discussed this with her brother before she got married.

Wait!, there is something that doe not make sense here. There is only 1 category for sisters of USC. (4F:  Brothers and Sisters of Adult Citizens) ... and the waiting time for that category is around 12 years. So it should not matter if the sister got married, or at least, it should not make thath much of a difference ... may be NVC would need some extra time to update the file and add the husband, but we are not talking about "years". You need to give us more info. Like her PD, country of origin, date of marriege, etc.

A duplicate post to this one located in the Efforts of Family Changes on immigration Benefits forum has been removed. It is not necessary to post the same information in more than one forum and this is the most appropriate forum for the topic.

n order to apply for a Family-Based Green Card, you must be sponsored by a family member in the U.S. If the sponsor is a U.S. citizen, then he or she must be the foreign applicant's husband or wife, mother or father, brother or sister or son or daughter. If the sponsor is a Lawful Permanent Resident(also known as a "Green card Holder"), then he or she must be the foreign applicant's spouse or children.

hi,

her PD was July or August 2005. she was at the point where she was been scheduled for her interview in Nigeria

and one of the forms she had to fill asked her who was migrating with her. in an effort to be truthful she

added her husband's name to the list. She got married since 2005. now they got a letter in the mail stating

that since she is now married her category has changed and now she is now married sibling of a US citizen.

for the category NVC is currently working on 2001 so she is probably going to wait another 10 yrs. Is there

any way out of this situation or any suggestions?

Something doesn't add up here: They are working on 2001 for married children of US citizens, not siblings. For siblings, they are working on 2000, so a year more, but for siblings, it doesn't matter if you're married. In any case, you cannot jump the queue.

Deer Praise5600:

I hope you are getting it. What everyone here is saying is this : For category F4, the sister of a USC, it does not matter if she got married, she would be in the same category F4, single or married, and the waiting time would not change much. On top of that, there is no way she could have been scheduled for interview in that category since they are not close to her PD of July 2005.

So I think you got the facts wrong , the only way this story makes sense is if the PETITIONER is one of girl’s parents, and then we would be talking about a F1 category which had to be moved to F3 because of her marriage. So I suggest you talk to your friend and make sure you get the facts correct.

Warning : If the petitioning Parent was a LPR at the time your friend’s sister got married… then everything is lost… they would have to start all over again.

hello everyone,

you are right. i verified the information with my friend. the petitioner is her US citizen parent not sibling.

and she was initially F1 category. you guys know this stuff really good. you always give sound information

no one needs a lawyer with this Forum. what is this LPR? Also, is there anything she can do at this point

she will be devastated when her brother breaks the news to her this weekend

thank you all
