Bringing Parents to USA on immigration visa

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a US Citizen and would like to bring my parents to the US on immigration. What documents from my parents are required to be submitted with the Form I-130.

I have heard that I will need their Birth Certificate, but since my father was born in 1930 and mother in 1933 in India, birth certificates were not available at that time.

Neither do they have their school leaving certificate. Please advise on how to proceed.

Also should the I-864 Affidavit if Support be filed at the same time with the I-130 at the same place or separately.

88 and 85?

 

Have you thought this through, the Medical costs would be substantial and would cripple most people..

There are ways around no birth certificates, but at their age some of the alternate methods will be nearly impossible.

 

I agree about the health care costs.  You are no "spring chicken".  Are you up to the physical - as well as financial - demands of caring for two elderly people.  That can destroy your health and leave your family caring for you as well as them.

 

If they need assistance, you would be better off finding someone where they currently live or take the time to go there yourself.

Discussions here have concluded that the cost to provide ACA health insurance for elderly parents is about $1,000 per month each. And that insurance still requires co-pays and deductibles.

And wait and see what happens when that gets gutted like the administration is trying to do at the moment. If that goes through and the parents have pre-existing conditions those won’t be covered at all.

Let me just answer the questions you asked:

 

Try and look into obtaining their birth certificates through Nagar Nigam/ Municipal Corporation in India, ask for a birth certificate application form.

 

The i-864 does NOT need to be filed with the i-130. The i-864 is only need after your petition has been approved by USCIS. The NVC may or may not ask you to send them a completed copy, but your parents would need to take a copy of it with them to their visa interview.
