Thread: UPGRADING PETITION I30

  1. #1
    I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF UPGRADING A PETITION FROM PETITION OF GREEN CARD HOLDER TO PETITION OF A US CITIZEN? DOES IT MAKE THINGS COMPLICATED? IF I CALL TO UPGRADE MY PETITION FROM LPR TO US CITIZEN, DOES IT TAKE A LONG TIME AS FAR AS CONVERTING THE PETITION OR DO THEY CHANGE IT RIGHT AWAY> HOW DOES USCIS PROCESS IT?
    thanks>>>>>>

    My friend, simply calling won't make things happen. You need to seek a competent legal advice regarding this case.

    Star15,
    What is the petition for? Did you(an LPR) petition for someone and now you are a USC? If this is the case, upgrading may change when the priority date becomes current and may be a good thing. When you call the USCIS #, they tell you how to do this. To answer your question more accurately, need more info.

    Yeah, now it's clearer. Hahaha, info comes in trickle! Here's my "opinion" in this case.

    Is the I-130 approved yet? If so, attach a copy of the approval to the AOS packet (I-485, I-864, G-325 [for both of you], & I-765 [if he needs an EAD]).

    If the I-130 is filed but pending approval, it's a bit tricky. Just prepare the same AOS packet and attach the I-130 receipt notice.

    It depends where your location is. Officers at some USCIS local offices require an I-130 re-filed (without a fee) but some do not.
