Slow progress on I-130 visa

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My brother, a US citizen filed my petition for I-130 visa on 30th March 2012, till today no significant progress. Is it possible that I move to US on a visit visa and consult any lawyer to pursue my petition while staying there?

Still about 6 more years.  Current date is October 2006.  No lawyer can move the Priority dates 


YMMV

This is not legal.  Do you even have a visitor's visa?

Completely illegal. Even for spouses and children of US citizens, let alone grown siblings. 

 

If you miss your brother so much could he not move closer to you?

Because you can't come on a visitor visa and live in the US. It is illegal. The reason why it is so hard for many people in some countries to obtain visitor visa is because they do exactly what you want to to by breaking the law and coming to live in the US on a visitor visa. You have to wait it out. And be thankful that you are able to petition a sibling at all because most countries don't even allow this.

People with petitions filed by a USC brother before 2006 are eligible for visas.  You have to wait another 6 years.

 

No, it's not possible to move to the US on a visit visa.  It's illegal.  A visit visa is for visits, not immigrating to the US.  

Furthermore, a lawyer can not do anything about the wait.  

 

YOUR ONLY CHOICE - wait another 6 years.  

 

If there was another way, we would tell you since all of our families are waiting too.  There isn't, so you need to just wait.
