Bringing parent to the US

Recommended Posts

Wishing everyone a Prosperous New year!

I don;t know if I posted this in the right forum but if not, I ask help of the moderator to just move it at the right place :D

Well, first I do not really have a quite exact knowledge on my concern.

BRIEF: I entered here late 2011 in a K1 visa..my husband and I are thinking if it might be possible to petition my parent to come over. And I know since i am not sue if my husband ( being the USC ) can be the petitioner (?)

For anybody who had the first hand knowledge and experience on this, it would be nice if you can please send me link as to where I can get the proper instructions which include fees, process, and requirements.

It would be nice to get any idea of the TOTAL COST ( filing, visa, medical, and et.al / Philippines ) of the type of Visa suitable for this kind of petition.

Thank you so much everyone!

nope, your husband cannot file for in laws, you will be able to, once you become a USC.

they can try to get a tourist visa to visit you until then. once you are ready, read the guides.

He can only apply for his direct relations. You only can apply for your parents. You must wait until you become a citizen, which you can apply for three years following your permanent residency assuming you are still married to a US citizen.
