  • Can a LPR sponsor parents?

    Can a LPR sponsor his parents and upgrade the paper once he got his citizenship. I heard that lots of people get their parents here faster this way than to wait till they got citizenship.

    LPRs can not file immigrant petitions for parents. Citizens can, even if the parents are in the US after overstaying a nonimmigrant visa.

      Once you become a USC and your parents are here in the US, you can file a I-130+I-485 for them and they will receive a GC within sixmonths. This is the short cut.

        Could you please refer to any law or link to show that USC can apply for their parents who overstayed their non-immigrant visa?

            hey...thanks for advice you all gave me....do you guys think getting my parents here on visitor visa and overstay while waiting for me to fill I 485 for them once i got my citizenship is a good idea?
            Specially now that INS tracking people via computer and deport them once they get caught? And any change that they will be granted greencard if they overstay?
