Immigration of Son After Cruise Vacation

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Once again I am coming to VJ for some help with immigration related stuff. My situation this time is as follows:

My wife and I booked a closed looped cruise for my son, her and myself last year not thinking that my son would be immigrating to the USA so soon. We booked the cruise for the middle of November. Due to him now wanting to immigrate and him being here with us we were planning on having my sons paperwork (I-130, I-485, etc) in for immigration by the first week of August, but I just went up for court and the case got adjourned till September 1st. By that time it will be 2 1/2 months till the trip. My son is 13 years old.

1) Do you still think that it is quite possible to get a travel document by the middle of November if we apply for immigration the first week of September?

2) If we were to wait till after the cruise to apply for immigration do you think we will have issues going through customs upon disembarking the ship at the end of the cruise due to me having custody papers?

Thank you for your responses
