Husband terminally ill

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So on top of having to come to terms with my wonderful husband being terminally ill with cancer, we're in the hospital (have been for the past three/four weeks) the doctors said they can do nothing more than keep him comfortable now, we're trying to make the best of the days we may be lucky to have together....there's the whole question of what will become of me?

 

I arrived in March on my K-1 & we married within the month & began the filing process thereafter that's as far along as we are...

 

I read through the FAQS & tried a quick search, please forgive me but I'm not figuring it out from my findings 

 

PLEASE if anyone knows what I should expect, or what I can do (I"ll be calling the attorney in the morning) I would very much appreciate any light as can be shed on my situation.

I'm truly sorry you are going through this. 

 

My guess is you want to stay? If that's the case, here's a link that could help you.

Hope this can help you and does not come off as insensitive.

Very sorry to hear...I hope you have some sort of support system with family/friends---you will need to take care of yourself mentally and emotionally as well.

 

As mentioned, you can continue to AOS on your own as a widow, when the time comes.

Recommend that you strive to get your husband to execute even a simple Will.

Your attorney or the hospice people can almost certainly help you.

 

This will help you in "life" and possibly as evidence in the Adjustment process.

At the present time get him to do a POA for you/ there will be a lot of decisions during his treatments that he may not feel good enough to do

the POA is not good later that is why you need the will 

and i do feel for you as i lost a very beloved man to cancer

My thoughts are with you and of course your husband. I can't offer anything advice wise on immigration, but the people on here are very knowledgeable and helpful. The Will is a good idea and if possible see if its possible to do one. Other than that, please embrace the time you have and cherish the moments you have. Sending hugs

I am so sorry to read this. This is such a nightmare and I am sorry, you guys have to go through this. All you can do right now is to enjoy everything as much as you guys can. If you do not have a will yet, please advise your husband to settle his affairs.

 

As for your future processing, reach out to this forum and we'll try to help as much as we can. I am sending you prayers and tons of energy into your direction. Please hang in there.
