Instructions and Help about i 130 processing time for brother

Why is my green card application for my brother or sister overseas taking such a long time and what are some of the problems that are associated with these kinds of cases hi I'm Jim hacking immigration attorney practicing law here in st. Louis Missouri you know we've been seeing a big uptick in problems with brother and sister visas lately and I wanted to talk to you about it today on this video so here's the deal a u.s. citizen decides a sponsor let's say his brother and his brother lives back home in Pakistan and they know and they have proved that they are indeed brothers the problem is the Immigration Service is really starting to push back on these types of petitions now I'm keep in mind these cases take a very long time Congress has placed a cap on the number of brothers and sisters that can come from overseas and this has led to a very large backlog in available visas for most countries that backlog is currently around 12 or 13 years and from other countries like Philippines in the Mexico and Mexico it can be up to 20 years so there's a real backlog on the number of these is available that means that even if people's cases are approved there's no way for them to come to the United States at this time or to stay in the United States if they already have an approved case this is how the process works typically you file an i-130 application for your brother or sister and then you wait a very long time now cas does have a backlog and they know that these aren't available for 13 years so over what we've been seeing lately is that people are not hearing back from CAS other than to get the receipt notice for any action on their case for about four years so it's been a real problem lately because these cases sit for four or five years sometimes the US citizen sponsor moves and neglects to update their address with Immigration Service so that's one real problem we've been seeing is that the Immigration Service can't find the US citizen once it comes time to look at their particular case but the bigger problem that we've been seeing lately is that CAS is really pushing back on birth certificates and proof of the brother or sister relationship now when you want to sponsor your brother you know that they're your brother you know that you were born in the same house to the same parents or the same hospital and you don't give much thought to having to prove that this person is in fact your brother or your sister well Immigration Service and the State Department uses what are called reciprocity tables which is a list of the types of documents that become a country has available to demonstrate identity or birth certificates or marriage of those kinds of things

FAQ

If you left a survey for burglars to fill out the next time they ransacked your home, how would they rate the experience?
How did you learn about us?Rumors about rural houses having little Security.Location: 5/10Location was alright. Around 500 meters to the nearest neighbor. But unfortunately an hour away from any sizable population (20,000 plus being a sizable population.)Transportation: 10/10Transportation was top notch. The owners of the property never lock their Minivan or Pick-up truck. The keys are always left in the vehicles. Both are moderately new and somewhat non-descriptive so a perfect getaway vehicle. Not only did they provide vehicles they also kept trailers in a easily accessible unlocked shed.Security: 9/10Security was lax. There is a gate but it isn’t locked. Doors aren’t locked unless the house is left unoccupied for more than 2 weeks. No cameras made it really easy. They did have a dog which made it a bit of a pain. He was easily disposed of as he was just a Labrador Retriever puppy. Owners are very light sleepers don’t rob if they’re around.Products: 10/10No place has better selection. The place had 3 DSLR cameras, 3 Workstation class desktops, 3 tablets, 4 drones, 6 Smartphones, 9 external monitors and 11 laptops. All of the items were of premium design and value (aka Apples or equivalent). The freezers and shelves were well stocked the rest of the property was much more appealing though.They also had a shop on the property with many tools ranging from mechanics to carpentry to fabrication. The tools were of medium quality. The shop also stored 2 ATV for added convenience. The shop wasn’t the jackpot though.The shed was the real treasure trove. This drive in shed held heavy equipment all with the keys in the ignition for easy accessibility. The average equipment’s value was around $100,000, with a combined value of around $1.5 Million. Unfortunately the heavy equipment is hard to transport and the market is too small to get away with it.The products all seemed gift wrapped for the taking. Everything was easy to find as it looked organized.Laws in the area: 10/10Owners aren’t allowed to use lethal force or even have a premeditated weapon for self defense. A robber in the area once accidentally locked himself into the garage place he was robbing. As the owners did not come home for a couple days he resorted to eating dog food. The end result was the owners were charged for negligence of the robber. Laws almost protect us. Owners are not supposed to attack us in any way or they may be charged.Would you recommend to your friends?If everybody is gone a resounding yes. Unfortunately that’s not very often as the house is occupied by Home-schooling kids, a Writer and the owner is a farmer who mostly works on property. Also if you intend to use brute force, bring a weapon. All the occupants are big. The average height is around 6 feet.BTW bring friends to help loot. It really requires a team of people to loot the place.
How can I take my child (16yrs) to the U.S if my immigrant visa is approved? My husband, a US citizen, filled out form I 130 for me and mentioned this child as migrating in future.
Just petition using a I-130 yourself. Read the instructions very carefully. I am not sure but it’s possible that the affidavit of support will need to be filled by your husband since he is the citizen and he filled one for you - again, check the instructions very carefully. It should be a pretty clear, straightforward process.Your child is still well below the age limit and should be fine. If there are any problems, do the same thing you did with your own process - use the numbers you are given to check on the process and if you see it stuck call to make sure they have everything they need early.It is my understanding that the age limit of the child is based on the petition date, so go ahead and do it.You still have plenty of time at 16, just don’t delay.
