  • Death of a sponser

    does anyone know what to do if someone is going for their final interview, I believe for a green card, and their spouse dies
    suddenly. this recently happened to my neighbor. They were married less than two years. I really feel for her she has no family here to help her. any help or suggestions would really be appreciated.
    thanks

      If she sends in copy of death certificate she will get green card right away,maybe after an interview.

      Thats guaranteed,provided they were living together with the USC spouse.

          She wont need your sadistic help.

          Please dont pick on grieving people Michael,thats morally unfit of you.

          You wont like your wife to be asked silly questions like that when you are gone, would you?

            well, as far as I know you can get a green card if your spouse dies, only if you have been married for two or more years

              From the USCIS website:
              Typically, when the visa petitioner dies, the approved I-130 originally filed by the visa petitioner is automatically revoked. However, following the passage of the Family Sponsor Immigration Act, P.L. 107-150, beneficiaries of these petitions may file for reinstatement so long as they can provide an I-864 Affidavit of Support filed by a "substitute sponsor".

              In order to seek reinstatement of the visa petition, you must submit a statement to the USCIS office where the original visa petition was filed formally requesting reinstatement of the visa petition. The statement should list reasons why your case warrants reinstatement, such as your ties to the United States, or hardship that would occur to you if the request for reinstatement were not granted.

              You must also include with your reinstatement request a Form I-864 Affidavit of Support completed by a "substitute sponsor". A substitute sponsor must be a citizen or national, or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence, at least 18 years of age, and resident in the United States. A substitute sponsor must also be related to you as one of the following: spouse, parent, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sibling, child (if at least 18 years of age), son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, grandparent, or grandchild. This substitute sponsor is filing the I-864 in place of the deceased petitioner, and must meet all of the financial requirements of a sponsor pursuant to INA 213A.

              With your reinstatement request you must provide documentary evidence of the death of the original petitioner, plus documentation of the relationship between you and the substitute sponsor. Finally, include a copy of your approved I-130, if available.
