USC petitioning for mom

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

What type of visa is your mother living in NY on ? Your sister will have to provide proof of their relationship ( birth certificate and pictures through time ) If your mother have legal status in the US she will be able to interview here . If not she will have issues with the ban. Adults can't show hardship for not having their parents with them

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Mom's legal status doesn't matter. She's an immediate relative of a US citizen. She gets the same exemption that a spouse would get concerning her status.

Whether or not the petitioner must be present for the interview is up to the immigration officer conducting the interview. It's mandatory for a spouse adjusting status, but not mandatory for a parent. If I were wearing those shoes then I would plan to attend the interview with my mom. The IO might otherwise question how the ultimate goal of family reunification is being served if the petitioner not only doesn't live near their mother, but can't even be bothered to attend their AOS interview. Adjustment of status is an exception to the normal immigrant visa processing requirement, and the IO could use their discretion to determine that the exception isn't warranted in this case.
