Permanent Resident Status vs US Citizen Status

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! My In-laws are US Citizen already for almost 2-3 years now... they still have a pending petition for my Brother In-Law from the Philippines, F2B... however they filed it when they were in Permanent Resident Status and they haven’t updated their status USCIS... They received NOA2 around December 2009... Now, my question  is, should they update their status not? Just incase they update their status from PR to USCitizen, would that affect or reset the status of their petition? I hope to hear from you guys! Thank you!

Something not right here. Only US citizens can file a petition for siblings.

He said his in-laws are citizens, filing for their son. All perfectly in order.


OP, won’t reset the petition, will keep PD but change category from F2B to F1 which currently has slightly faster time to current for Philippines.

Do guys have any idea on what my In-Laws should do? Should they have to wait the petition be forwarded to NVC before they change their status or can they do it even though the petition is still in USCIS? The PD is May 2009.
