  1. Let me see. Since I'm paying for everything, it is actually up to me as far as the exact timing. If someone were giving me an all expense paid trip, I'd have no problem with that. In the meantime, if she chooses to come of her own accord and can do the paperwork, get her visa, etc. She can do that. I certainly won't stop her :). It's all a non issue until her mother passes. She's not going anywhere. That could take a couple more years. My wife will meet the requirement in about 16 months, I think. So it's probably a moot point, because we are applying on the first possible day. What is stranger is why this seems to stick in the craw of many here? Besides, as you've all told me... the alarms and bells and whistles will go off and the CIA will be on high alert when we file for the Visa! I'm sure they'll call the Pentagon! So since we don't have a chance for it anyway, why would it matter what my timing preference is?
  2. I honestly have to wonder if you are challenged in the area of reading comprehension. My preference to wait until other circumstances are settled is just that, my preference. I'm just stating it, not saying it's a requirement at all. And it STILL my preference. Continue with your Negative Nancy groupthink if you like!
  3. Ok, let's say I wait until my wife has her citizenship settled. My sister in law has to wait until her mother dies and she might hang on for another year or two anyway. Are they going to say "Hey, his wife is a Citizen so his sister will overstay"? The reality is she'll some here for 3 months, that's it. I did all of our immigration paperwork and adoption paperwork all by myself. I've heard a slew of negative Nancy Jr. sleuth detectives telling me how I couldn't do this or that. I have never cared what any of the bureaucrats think or how suspicious they are. I got it all done. My prediction is we'll end up having her here for a few months when we decide to move on this. Immigration is so incompetently managed that it's a joke. That's why we have illegal immigrants galore sucking from the system. Stopping a girl from visiting her sister can't be that much of a priority when you can't even enforce your own border.
  4. Basically, that's the case. I'm just beginning to explore this. Probably going to wait until my wife has her citizenship and her mother has passed. And if she can't get a visa, she can't get a visa. We're going to go to Thailand a couple of months a year anyway.
  5. Our home is next door to her cousin's house, my wife's aunt lives on the property behind our house. They can schlep through for 3 months without her. She's not coming until after her mom passes, which simplifies things considerably. I think leaving her 12 and 14 year old children there will pretty well guarantee her return. Let them ask whatever question they choose. We are also starting a commercial greenhouse operation behind our house. So she will have a business. The bottom line is they can think whatever they want to think, ask whatever they want to ask. She's coming back to Thailand after 3 months. She's already living a good life, driving a nice car, living in a great house. Locals think my wife's family is rich. People driving by stop and take pictures of our house and ask questions. She will never have a worry for money in her life. This, as my wife's sister. I just don't see what the big deal is, really. Let's assume I do it and lose $160. Put yourself in her shoes. Wouldn't you want to come to America and see your sister and all her Thai friends? After her mother dies, she is going to need to get away to clear her mind.
  6. Agreed. Some here are uber negative, although I can't see how it benefits them. Let's say we try (we can't do it now, my wife's mother is dying of cancer and we will have to wait until that resolves). We try it, they say no. I don't think $160 will put much of a dent in us. I can send her $10,000 with the click of a mouse, so she'll have plenty of money to show. Is that fraud?
  7. It might also mean finding a suitable husband, who is a good man who truly loves her. It doesn't mean fraudulently creating one for immigration purposes. You're reading a bit too much in this.
  8. I think you're misunderstanding this. We're not doing anything of this sort. It's just a visit. And why not? Is there anything inherently wrong with this? Of course, we can go to Thailand any time we choose. We'd just like to have her come here because we're family and would enjoy that. She'd love it as well. Funny that the government is so absolutely suspicious about this, while allowing MS-13 gang members to just waltz over the border at Texas.
  9. I imagine a lot of that is up to interpretation. We are law abiding citizens who would never participate in any form of an overstay. Her children and family in Thailand depend on her. She had a little business in Thailand that she had to give up in order to take care of the family. I don't see how she'd qualify for a B2. If she did come to the U.S. to try to stay, it would have to be a K-1. Even then, it's not so simple to manufacture a suitable husband for her. In truth, it would just be a visit with her sister.
  10. Yes, I understand this clearly. She must come of her own merit, independent of her relationship to us.
  11. Her situation is that she's caretaker for my wife's family. She lives in an extremely nice house that my wife owns (wish I could afford a house like that here in the states). She's 40, 2 children of her own aged 14 and 12. Speaks very little English. I think she has a degree in Thailand as an accountant but job prospects are poor for Thai women of her generation. No husband. We send $1000 a month back to Thailand to take care of my wife's family and she basically runs the show. We'd like to bring her over for a 3 month visit on a tourist visa. I think the tourist visa from Thailand is extremely difficult to obtain.
  12. That makes it sound almost impossible, if not impossible for her to come visit with us. Only goes to show that those who obey the laws are at the biggest disadvantage.
  13. My wife will be a citizen in another year-ish (assuming she passes the test). The question is for a tourist visa from Thailand for her sister, who has a squeaky clean life (40 years old), so there are no issues out of the ordinary.
  14. This is straight from the horse's mouth, in my child's passport package. I defy anyone to tell me that a passport is not a full recognition of U.S. Citizenship. The Certificate of Citizenship is simply not needed. I bought my child $500 worth of Fantom crypto instead of wasting money on this. It's now worth about $1100. When it's worth 10k, this would still be money wasted on something totally unneeded.
