  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. Hi VJ'ers, Hope you all are staying safe. Here's a background of our story. Please keep in mind we sent an inquiry every 60 days and got the same AP response from the embassy. 10/17- Applied for father's ir5 2/18- Interview at Islamabad Embassy in Pakistan, result AP followed by DS-5535 which was filled and sent back the following day 4/19- second interview at ISL Embassy with updated medical- updates on ceac made but no visa issuance, still AP 1/21- we requested for his passport back since he was needing it to travel and attend to business, passport received, case still in AP 3/21- Latest CEAC update on case (under AP still) 4/1/21- Today, the case on CEAC updates to EXPIRING SOON We emailed the embassy today that we are awaiting for the AP to end and for the visa approval, not sure why its "expiring" due to their own delays. I know factors like the pandemic and changes in the US Administration are factors which can add to the delay, and Islamabad is notorious for long dreadful APs. Do you guys think its time we do a mandamus?
  3. I wish to bring my mom who is currently in the Philippines to the US to be a permanent resident. I have a few questions: 1. What's with this travel ban made by Trump? Will that currently hinder my petition (I-130)? 2. How long does it usually take for her to get the visa? 3. What is the outline for entire process and what are the documents needed for the entire process? 4. I assume there is a medical exam required for her to pass. Where is it and how much? 4. What is the estimated total cost?
  4. Hello, I am starting a thread to track I-130 for parents filed in May 2020. Please join the conversation and share your journey/process. I filed I-130 (with Consular processing) for both my parents online today, May 4th, 2020. Got IOE receipt numbers immediately.
  5. Do I need to submit passport photos of me and my mother ? if yes where should I download that photos? It only ask for Petitioner's Naturalization, Birth Certificate and DOcs that proof legal change of name.
  6. Hi all, I applied for my father (i130) and was wondering if anyone can shed some light on why NVC would send a case back to USCIS for administrative action? Has anyone else experienced this? Brief timeline: 12/2018 - Sent i130 08/2019 - USCIS approved application and sent it to NVC 10/2019 - NVC sent it back to USCIS for administrative action Thank you!
