I-360 Widow Visa

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


We have a pending I-130 that's currently in received status and my husband died last month.

Anyone whose able to go to U.S. with widow visa?

How long did the process take?

I was always advised to informed USCIS about my husband's death but the local USCIS told me to call the USCIS hotline to inform them.

Then I called the USCIS hotline and they told me to set up an infopass appointment in the local USCIS..

What am I to do?

How can I send the death certificate to USCIS?

The hotline seems telling I don't have to do anything since the petition will be automatically converted..

Thanks for any help or advice..

I have no advice. I am just terribly sorry for your loss.

YOU CAN UPDATE any case, by sending in [insert document name here] to the Service Center currently processing your case.

You will need:

1. A letter explaining why you are writing them

2. Attached documentation

3. Names and Dates of birth of petitioner and beneficiary

4. The NOA#1 receipt number

**** Take all that and send it into the service center.
