  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Hello all, I just received an email from NVC stating that they will work with the embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia to get an interview date for my parent (IR5). Does anyone have any idea how long does it takes for the NVC to obtain the date? Thank you!
  4. Hello everyone, my mother is a legal permanent resident and she does not work, my sister will also be my sponsor and lives with my mother. I know that my mother should fill out the I864 form but my sister which form should fill out, I864 or I864a ? My priority date is February 23, 2015. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hello All, I am creating this topic to gain some knowledge of the process of getting my mother a PR here. She is currently in the US, and per USCIS, it does mention that i can concurrently submit I-130, and I-485. I have queries about the following, in hopes someone out-there can help me! 1. Should i submit both? or to be safe and cost effective should i use start with I-130? If i do only the I-130, will it impact her stay here? 2. Upon submission of one or both documentation, can she remain in the country or leave after 6 months of being here? 3. Is it possible to submit both documentations online? Appreciate your time and knowledge in this! Hope this thread will be helpful to other too!!
  6. Greetings. Hoping to get some tips and/or advice on an immigration/health insurance predicament. My wife and I are looking to sponsor her mother’s immigration from the Philippines to come live with us. She is approaching 86 y.o., her lease agreement is running out on her apartment, doesn’t have any family over there in a position to take care of her, and reaching an age where she’s no longer a good candidate for living alone. The thing that concerns us is her health care options once she arrives. I called Kaiser to see if she can be included in our family coverage and they said we’d have to go through Covered Ca. I went to Covered Ca. and they said there was nothing she qualified for (because of her age an pending immigration status) and that we’d have to talk with Social Services. Social Services doesn’t return phone calls. Taking the risk of NOT insuring her, with her potentially needing some complicated procedure, could very well wipe out the little we have saved for our own retirement. I’ve looked at some expensive “Bridge” policies but they’re pretty brutal in regard to pre-existing conditions and excluding anyone with diabetes. We are really in the dark with this and hoping someone might have gone through this themselves or might have some insights into these circumstances. Thanks!!
  7. My father's initial status was Administrative Processing after his immigrant visa interview on June 27. He had to submit a few documents like updated police certificate and family registry and i864-A so he was given 221g. After submitting the documents on July 17, my mother's visa went from READY TO ISSUED on Aug 1 and my father's visa went from AP to READY FOR INTERVIEW. The date has been updated a few times but case still ready for interview. No feedback from embassy. Please help if you know anything about this scenario!
  8. I will be filing I130 (counselor process)for my dad after my naturalization. My dad's name in his school leaving certificate is written <firstnamapart1firstnamepart2> space <lastname>. On his marriage certificate and passport it is <firstnamapart1> space <firstnamepart2> space <lastname>. There is an extra space in his first name would that be grounds for RFE/denial. Should we spend time and effort to get space removed from first name in his passport and marriage certificate. PS: When data of birth certificate is not available USCIS will accept school leaving certificate along with non available certificate as proof of DOB and name.
  9. Hi everyone. I've been a bit stressed, there is no progress in my Father's case. Last month i sent an email to USCIS about my Father's case being out of the normal processing time. I received an email back saying it is under review by an Officer. Prior to that the only update i got was the NOA1 in June of 2018. In two weeks it'll be a year since i've filed. Has anyone had the same situation where the case is out of the normal processing time? What happens after a year of filing does the case get expired at a certain time? Thank you in advance.
  10. I am currently attempting to fill out a I-130 form for my father. He is currently in Peru and has been there since 1994 (past 10 year ban). He was deported after being found guilty for a felony of theft in VA. My question is, is filling out an I-130 form the only action that I can perform, or is this situation become too complicated that would require a lawyer? Thank you for your help!
  11. Maybe I'm overthinking this, but just want to make extra sure. My fiancé's (beneficiary's) mother is deceased. What should I list for her city/town/village and country of residence on the I-129f? Should I list where she previously lived? Or just put N/A and explain that she is deceased? Thank you!
  12. Hello everyone! It seems like there isn't a May 2018 I-130 thread for U.S. Citizens applying for parents through consular processing. I will be sending mom's application 5/24/18, right after I leave my Naturalization Ceremony everything is ready to go, just waiting on that certificate! From what I have been reading from last year threads, the whole process is taking around a year, give or take. I-130 approval seems to be around 6-8 months (it can be more or less, of course). Please share your input! Hope to talk to you all soon! Good luck to all of us!
