August 31, 2023, I-130 Approval

Approval of an Immigrant Petition for the parent of a United States Citizen

This petition is the first step for the parent of a United States Citizen to obtain a green card. We always screen green card cases to determine if the green card beneficiary can qualify for a green card without leaving the United States through the Adjustment of Status process if the beneficiary is present in the United States. However, not all green card beneficiaries will qualify for the Adjustment of Status process.

If Adjustment of Status is not an option, then the beneficiary's case will be reviewed to confirm eligibility to process the application through the U.S. consulate abroad. In this case, our client would not qualify for the adjustment of status process which will require processing through the consulate. Despite the fact that our client had previously lived in the United States for more than a year which would normally expose the client to a ten year bar, since our client has been living outside the United States for more than 10 years, the 10 year bar period has passed and our client can now proceed to his consular interview without concern of needing to file a waiver to waive the 10 year bar. Contact us today if you have any questions about the green card process, including consular processing.
