  1. Hello! Everyone! I hope everyone is having a good day I'm 21 this year and I would like to sponsor my dad, or get him a green card. From what I understood (roughly translation, from Hokkien) My dad came to America on a working Visa in the 1990's and overstayed it. He just been here ever since. Met my mother here (also an immigrant at the time, had me/brother but she already got her green card years ago and have tried sponsoring him. It's been years and dad just couldn't get a green card, I don't know why) The Chinese Lawyers are just asking for more money and money. Nothing is being done I heard from one of my friends who's marrying someone overseas and he's applying a Parole in Place for His wife. I looked up Parole in Place and I could use it for my dad? In Order to get Parole in place I have to Apply for I-131 or I-130? I'm getting confused on where to start. Everywhere I see. Everyone is applying for *I-130 *I-485 *I-131 *I-765 But mostly for their spouse. Not their parents. Any help or guidance is appreciated Thank you everyone God bless
  2. Sent form I-130 and all related documents to NVC on April 18th 2019. Application was approved and case opened Nov. 4th 2019 ( NVC informed me that the documents are being sent to Ghana Embassy in Accra where his interview will be scheduled) In February I received an email stating his Interview was scheduled for April 9th 2020. In March 2020 I received another email stating his Interview was rescheduled to August 19th 2020 due to COVID. In June another email stating his was received saying IM and all other visas have been suspended until further notice. I kept enquiring about when a new interview would be schedled and finally in March 2021 a new interview was scheduled for May 5th 2021. He sent a new Police certificate and new medicals because they already expired. His interview day arrived and he was granted an Immigrant Visa which he would collect at DHL. His account of the interview process was rather long and don't want to bore all the readers so let me know if anyone's parent has an upcoming interview and is interested in knowing some of the questions asked and the new covid protocols etc.
