Serious Dilemma/Problem (Bringing Wife and Children)

Filed: AOS (pnd) Country: Egypt

Hi All

This question isn't for me but for a friend of my husband. He has an uncle who resided an Egypt and won the lottery to bring himself and his family to America some years ago. He applied for them to get green cards at that time and they were approved but for whatever reason they never came to America to live.

The uncle is now a US Citizen and want to bring his wife and children to the US.

1.) Does he need to go through the process as if they never received green cards in the past??

2.) Or does he need to hire an attorney and try to reactivate the green cards they have??....not sure if they are deactivated or not just my assumption.

3.) If he goes through the process again does he put the old A#s on the applications or just leave it blank?

One of the daughters names was misspelled on the her green card and she sent it back but for whatever reason never received a new one.

Also, he has a daughter who is single now but might marry in a year.

1.) Does he not apply for her because of this or proceed anyway?? And let her petition her husband later?

2.) If he proceed and they have an interview later...will they ask her if she's married and deny her on those grounds?

Lastly, the uncle has been claiming them on his US taxes as if they live here. Will that impact his Affidavit of Support or have any ramifications with USCIS? I think this is more of an IRS issue, not sure.

Thanks for any input you can provide.
