Hello to everyone, I just became a citizen and I want to bring my mom. I am lost in this process. I just started the application online but I need guidance through this process. I used Visa Journey for my own process and I would like your help on bringing my mom. Thanks in advance.


I know this is difficult, but I will keep trying. It will work because, this distance is nothing compared to our love. :wub:

10/2013 we met at church in USA, through some common friends. We became friends.

06/07/2014 we went to our first date. :dancing: Why did we take so long to go out? :ranting:

06/22/2014 I said YES.. I want to be your girlfriend... :luv:

07/16/2014 I had to come back to Colombia because my program was over :cry:

10/10/2014 My love met me in Colombia to spend my birthday weekend with me. We got engaged (L)

02/17/2015 - 03/09/2015 He came back to Colombia to visit me and met my family. :star:

05/12/2015 We couldn't stand the distance, so he decided to move here with me. :wub:

05/28/2015 We got married at the notary. 06/06/2015 We got married at church :D

There is a visa journey guide for parents, under the “guides” tab at the top of the page.

I just started filling the application online. Where it asks me about the places I have lived in the past 5 years, I don't remember the exact dates because I have moved a lot. Is there a problem if the dates are not the exact same as when I filled my past applications? Also Can I translate my own birth certificate? The guides are confusing. I found more help when I was doing the process for myself than now trying to apply for my mom.

The process for parents IR5 is the same process as for a spouse .. just the documentation for the initial I 130 will be different and some of the civil documents at the NVC stage are different you. 
Fill in your previous addresses as accurately as possible using month and year. Your past 5 years is a different period of time to the 5 years previous when you completed the DS260 fir your initial spouse visa. 
Yes you can translate your own BC. You will need to testify that it is accurate and sign the translation .. the wording needed us in the instructions for each form.

I remember all the exact addresses I have lived in the past 5 years but not the exact months.  I had to answer to the same question on my application for naturalization. I just wonder if they compared applications because all I can give is estimates.

Be as accurate as you can. You can’t do more than that. Ask friends , family .. think about important dates .. birthdays, holidays etc, use old bank records, utility bills etc.

Agreed - do what you can to make it as accurate as you can. If there is a slight discrepancy, it should not be an issue. You just want to provide the most honest answer you can.

As described above, you can do your own translations for anything with USCIS, so long as it includes the proper signed certification. See https://www.visajourney.com/guides/uscis-document-translation/

I would use what you did for naturalisation.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Have a look through your emails to see if you have emails concerning the moves (quotes from moving companies, purchase of boxes, communications with landlords, utility companies, credit card companies, etc).
