Hello guys,

I was just looking some paper-work i need and i saw this piece of paper saying "NOTICE OF APPROVAL OF RELATIVE IMMIGRANT VISA PETITION"... what does this mean? i mean, my grand-father became USC before he passed-away and my dad and his brothers applied for citizenship back then (1984) does this letter mean they were approved to become USC or just to visit this country?

In the bottom part of the letter is my father name and his brothers.
Date of approval petition, 12-21-84

Does this approval has an expiration date(i do not see any)?

Please, i got an appointment with my lawyer tomorrow, and i would like to know something about this before...
