Thread: Substitution of deceased petitioner

  1. #1
    Guest
    My father who is our petitioner died last May.He filed the petition in 1994 and the preference category is F2b. Recently we received a notice from the NVC informing us that they are withdrawing our case and sending it back to the INS. We have read about the "Family Sponsor Immigration Act of 2001". How can we avail of this new law? Please anyone, help.

    Contact the INS to see if you are eligible. Sounds like you need a new petitioner that can provide a new Affidavit of Support.

    I saw this on US embassy-Manila

    Petitioner has Died - When a petitioner dies, the visa petition he/she filed for a family member is no longer valid. In certain cases the Immigration and Naturalization Service will allow another relative to take the place of the deceased petitioner (e.g. if a U.S. citizen files a F3 petition for a son/daughter and subsequently dies, INS may allow a surviving spouse to become the petitioner). Contact the INS to determine whether this is possible in your situation.If in your application and interview you attempt to conceal the petitioner's death, you will be declared permanently ineligible to enter the United States.

    Please note: If your petitioner has died and the Immigration and Naturalization Service reinstates your petitition on humanitarian grounds, you are still required to present an I-864 Affidavit of Support signed by the petitioner. The humanitarian reinstatement does NOT waive this requirement. If you are in this situation, please contact the Immigrant Visa Unit before coming in for an interview.

    We still have our mother here in the U.S. who is a green card holder, a sister and a brother who are both U.S. citizens.

    As far as I know there's no procedure on how to go about substituting a petitioner when one is deceased. That's because what we read on Family Sponsor Immigration Act of 2001 is the proposed amendment to the current law. Hopefully, when your mother who is a PR contacts the INS she can keep your petition alive and is allowed to be a new sponsor, therefore you don't have to go to the back of the line and wait.

    I'm reading again on what I posted from the American embassy website "Contact the INS to determine whether this is possible in your situation."

    The "Family Sponsor Immigration Act of 2001" is already a law bec. it has been already signed by Pres. George Bush Jr. on March 30,2002. Thanks KM for the advices you're giving.
