Thread: Brother's petition ongoing

  1. #1
    My brother received his petition papers last month (August, 2003). He was petitioned by my sister which is a citizen way back 1982. His wife died March, 2001 and he had a girlfriend now that they want to get married. Can he include her as a wife if they get married anytime from today? Will she (his new wife) be legible to be with him in the US?

    It depends on her current status. Is she in the U.S.?

    She's in the same country where my brother is. She's not in the US.

    As far as I know, the beneficiary of the petition has to "update" the information once the US Consulate sends them the letter. My parents and my aunts came to the US through the sibbling's petition. Because it can take up to 10 years, many things change in your family so the original list the INS has could no longer be useful.
    For example, one of my aunts got divorce so she had to remove her former husband from the list. Another aunt gave birth a baby in the meantime so she had to add it.
    I think (and I am only guessing), that you can get married in Peru now and by the time the letter from the US Consulate is sent to you, you can update it so your new wife will also become Permanent Resident.
