  1. Hi All, The situation for one of my relatives is like this. The US citizen has sponsored for her sister and as part of that application, the children are also present. My understanding is that when the application was filed, the children were below 18 years of age. Now, they are 25 and above. When the turn arrives for the primary applicant (i.e. sister of the US citizen), are the children still eligible to immigrate as PR's or is there a cut-off? I am not clear based on what I've read on the USCIS website. According to the website, it appears that a US citizen can sponsor a child who is above 21 years provided they are not married, or something along those lines. Could someone who has experience with this help me understand the nuances and what is currently applicable? Also, can a US citizen still file for their immediate relatives i.e. Parents and Siblings? I heard this option was terminated but I am not sure. Please advise.
  2. Hello, I'm US Citizen and my wife is on conditional greencard, expires 12/30/21, we're about to file the paperwork for I-751 to remove conditions question in 2020, our son was born, and in the I-751 form, there is a section, in page3, part 5, information about child. do we include our son information and check, "is this child applying with you" as NO? we're confused. thank you
  3. Background: my daughter was born in Colombia but was given citizenship by me through a CRBA. My wife is traveling to the US for the first time as well on an IR1 visa. My wife is supposed to travel with my daughter to the states on Tuesday. Today we found out that supposedly for my daughter to leave Colombia with my wife she has to have a notarized and apostilled "permission slip" from me saying that it's ok. The only issue is that this permission slip is supposed to be apostilled and approved by the Colombian Consulate which for me is in Atlanta. My question is: Is there any way that I can get this done by Tuesday so that my wife can travel here without going to the consulate? If anyone has already gone through this process and could lend some advice that'd be great!!
  4. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? My fiance was approved on her first interview. During a second interview with the two children a different interviewer told her that I lied on my paper work and that I was a violent man ( I got in a street fight at 21 years of age and went to jail at 23 years of age for driving with a suspended license , I am 45 years old now and I wrote all that down. I did not hide anything ). He said he needs me to write down why I got in a fight, why was I driving with a suspended license and he wants word for word transcripts of my court hearing ( over 20 years ago). Is this common? Why would my fiance be approved only to have some guy reject the kids? Id there anything I can do other than o what he ask ( Which I am doing anyway) Thank you Jesse

  6. Hey all, We filed the I-485, I-131 and I-765 in early February of this year. They did biometrics in early August, and also again last week. My wife's cases all have been getting status updated, but my stepchild has no updates at all other than "USCIS received your case". My wife got updates for fingerprints taken, got approval for work/travel, and even received the cards almost a month ago. She really wants to go see her family, but obviously she wants to take her son with her. Even on the second biometrics appointment - which happened after my wife already had her work authorization and advance parole - the case number on the USCIS website showed that fingerprints were taken the next day. My stepson did not get an update! Has anyone seen this? One case is moving along fine but the stepchild's is not? My lawyer has basically said "It's coming" and nothing else.
  7. Hi there, I had a question about the i-751 process. I am filing for myself and my daughter. They received it 9/18/2017. I have paid for my application and my daughter's and I bio metrics fee, was $765. I got a letter in the mail for my appointment(early October...like 10/3/2017) for my bio metrics to be taken and it was actually today 10/12/17. I have not received a letter for my daughters. Will she have to do one? Isn't it usually mailed together? I am afraid that it got lost if they are usually mailed together or is it after mine is processed. When we first filed for our original green card she was 17, now she is 20. Thank you

  12. Just wondering if we could request for our interview to be waived cause we have a kid now? Isn't the point of the green card interview to establish the legitimacy of the marriage and won't having a kid be the biggest proof ?! Just curious?
