What if usc sibling dies?

3 posts in this topic

Hi, what happens if a usc sibling files for his sibling then God forbid they die before the 11 years are up for the visa number to be available? can one have two usc siblings petition for them at the same time just in case one of them passes on? Thanks.

If the petitioner dies, the petition dies. In some rare circumstances, another family member can ask for a "humanitarian re-instatement". Yes, you can have two (or more) petitions going at the same time. Many people do that, though usually with a parent and a sibling petitioning, especially if the parent is elderly.

Petitioner dies before visa available = no immigrant visa

Based on what I know, you can have as many petitions processing simutaneously as the beneficiary is qualified for. It is insurance. If one petition isn't fruitful you will have a back up plan since sooooo much can happen in a decade.

Getting a petition reinstated for humanitarian reasons is kinda difficult
