7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Please help, I returned to the UK in March as my 92 year old mother is seriously ill. I am an only child and there is no one else to look after her, so I have had to stay. She is on end of life care and I am her 24 hour carer. My husband is over visiting but I need to know what I need to do as I know that I am only allowed out of the US for a year. I really would appreciate your help, I dont have the time to do the research as I am so busy looking after her and find it so hard to concentrate on research as it is such a hard time for me. Please please could someone tell me what I should do I was wondering if I got a nurse to look after my mother for a few hours that both my husband and I should go to the Embassy thank you to anyone who can help

Assuming you are a green card holder, did you apply for a re-entry permit before you left?

If you are a citizen already you don't need to do anything.

Dear JFH. Yes I am a green card holder, I never did anything when I left the USA as I just had a call to get on the next flight over as they thought my mother would not make it through the night. Since then she has been put on end of life care and was told a few months ago she only had weeks to live but she is still doing better than expected. As you can imagine I cant leave her

You'll need an SB-1 then and have to demonstrate that you stayed out of the country for more than a year due to circumstances beyond your control:

It's not guaranteed that you will be approved because it's usually illness of the green card holder (not a relative) that they consider to be "beyond your control" but since you are the primary career you could have a good case.
