I-130 process for overseas parents

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can someone please kindly share the entire process of I-130 procedures for parents that are currently living overseas? Also, would you recommend to ask the parents come here on tourist visa first and then adjust status?

 

After I filed I-130, what should happened exactly? I am trying to piece the timeline together. Thank you so much!

 

1. File I-130

2. ??? (something about NVC?)

3. ???

4. Green card interview at local embassy? 

5. Travel to the US

Entering the US as a tourist with the intent to stay and adjust status is FRAUD!  Don't do it.....  Check the guides section of this web site for the answers to your other questions.

i see...thank you. the guide section doesn't say much..that's all they have: 

 

After Filing Your Petition

You will be notified by USCIS if your Form I-130 petition is approved or denied. If it is approved and your parent is outside the United States, he or she will be notified to go to the local U.S. consulate to complete visa processing.

But that pretty much is what the process is. If you are looking for specifics on civil documents etc it is all well explained on the DoS website. Start here and go through subsequent pages, you’ll see they have 12 steps listed with pages on each, making sure to also click on all relevant links https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/immigrate/the-immigrant-visa-process/step-1-submit-a-petition.html

thank you. that's a great link. Just a quick question...if i am petitioning my mother (she lives overseas), will there be any communication sending to her throughout the process or it will send to me (the petitioner)? I just want to make sure because my mother doesn't read english so in case she got emails or physical mails in English, she might just ignore it.

It will go to you until it’s time for her to submit documents/go to interview.  You would be notified too.
