I am in a process of filling up the I-130 Petition For Alien Relative form for my parents.

For the Section 14 b. Did you gain legal permanent resident status through marriage to a US citizen or lawful permanent resident?

I interpreted it that since I became a PR through marriage to my US citizen hubby that I should answer YES. But hubby thinks that I should just leave it unanswered since it doesn't pertain to me anymore because I am filing this petition as a US citizen & not a permanent resident. Who is right?:wacko:

I think he is actually correct since you're no longer in PR status. If you read question 13 it also ask about US citizenship which i am assuming that you. You can't be a PR and a USC at the same time so i'm thinking that don't pertain to you. But wait for another member with more experience to respond to you. But i think he's correct

your husband, you fill out number 13 as a USC, you cannot be a Citizen and a resident at the same time, or you fill out number 13 because you are a citizen, or you fill out number 14 and 14b as a resident. you cannot be both at the same time.

because it is a generic form, residents can file for spouses and unmarried children and they use the same form, you fill out only one of them depending on your current legal status. in your case you are filing one i130 for each parent as a USC.

Thank you Jessie05 & aleful for clarifying it to me.:thumbs:

I definitely over analyzed that particular question. :wacko:

Hubby is gloating that he was right all along! :whistle::rofl:

I don't answer NO either right? Just leave it unanswered?
