Thread: Child of a Prmanent resident

    Please help!
    We filed I-130 for my son 5 years ago and were waiting and kept inquiring since then without any success. Now INS claims that they did send us a letter for fingerprinting and then a denial notice in 2001. We never received anything! And every time we were asking about my son's file answer was - his file is fine, we are just behind, wait. They never told us that is was denied. To get that information out of them, we had to get our congressman involved! Now, are we too late for Motion to reopen? And will we even win it? Should I just forget the first application and file all over again?
    Any help will be appreciated, thanks!

    It will be better for your to file new petition and also for your citizenship. While the INS will be processing the petition, you will become USC and thereafter you just have to write them a letter to upgrade your petition which will be very fast.
    Good luck

    Thank you Umesh! How nice to hear from somebody!Maybe I should apply again, because I don't see a chance of winning the Motion. It's our word against INS. Do they really think that I waited for the letter for several years, just to overlook it?! What kind of a parent do they think I am?
    This year, in May I will be able to apply for Citizenship. Which you say will speed it up for my son? But would the previous denial affect this I-130 in any way?
    Thanks again,

    Frustrated mom

    I tried to post a Thank you note for Umesh, but I don't think I did it right. Anyway, Thank You, Umesh! It's nice to hear from someone!
    I will be applying for citizenship this year, which you say will speed it up?
    But you don't think that previous denial will affect us in any way?
    And in the mean time, would be my son able to go to college or work?

    You can apply for Citizenship 90 days prior to competing 5 years as a LPR.
    Prior denial of the petition will have no effect on new petition. INS might had sent you a letter asking for further information which you did not receive, may be because of address change etc. After waiting for prescribed period they must have denied the petition.
    Instead of going for review or appeal, it will be better to apply afresh because atleast he will have a priority date from now. If the Review or Appeal fails still you will have to do the same thing after 1 - 2 years.
    By the way, how old is your son right now and whether he is married or not. If he is under 21 years of age and unmarried it will be very fast for him to come here.
    Good luck

    He is 17, unmarried and he lives here with me.
    In September of this year will be 5 years since I became LPR, so I can allpy for citizenship in May. I think you are right and I should apply for him afresh as soon as possible. Please let me know if you have any other ideas.
    Thank you for encouragement!
