Guys,

I've discovered a new wrinkle in this process of the young lady legally coming to the U.S.

Use of the K3 could result in problems later on, because the validy of the existing petitions is revoked upon death of the petitoner.

On the other hand, the I-130 is legally converted to an I-360 and her immigrant processing can continue, via USCIS, if a new I-864 sponsor can be found.

--Ray B


About the K-3, the part that I find fuzzy is that the petition, in this case, is NOT revoked upon the death of the petitioner but rather is automatically converted to the I-360 as a matter of law. Although I am assuming she will need to submit a copy of the death certificate to get that done, and I am not sure where she would submit that to.

In regards to the I-864 sponsor, from what I can tell that depends on whether the husband had already submitted an I-864. If he did, then it appears that no new sponsor is required. If he didn't then I think a substitute sponsor would be required, but I am not sure. See the sections I quoted here: http://www.theworldo...i...st&p=219584

Mark,

The responsible agency for completing the I-130 conversion would be either USCIS or the NVC, depending on which agency currently has control of the I-130.

I think that the beneficiary (the widow) has to assume any prior I-864 (from her deceased husband) is now invalidated and she needs to assume a new sponsor will be needed.

My recommendation is for the young lady to obtain any case number information related to the I-130 (Service Center and NVC MNL numbers), copies of death certificates, and initiate contact with whichever agency now has the I-130 (presumably the NVC).

If the young lady would like my direct assistance, she is free to email me at: rbacon@multiethnicservices.com

That would normally be my assumption as well, however the USCIS has a published Final Rule that says:

http://www.uscis.gov...hash=0-0-0-3135

QUOTE
The final rule provides that it will not be necessary for the beneficiary to file a new petition (Form I-360, Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant) as the widow(er) of a citizen. Instead, the final rule provides for automatic conversion of the citizen's spousal Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, to a widow(er)'s petition upon the citizen's death if, on that date, the widow(er) meets the requirements of section 201(cool.gif(2)(A )(I) of the Act as it relates to widow(er)'s petitions. This automatic conversion will apply whether the citizen spouse dies before or after approval of the Form I-130. Since the alien spouse will then immigrate as the widow(er) of a citizen, it will not be necessary to submit a Form I-864 from a substitute sponsor.


My assumption here is that this exists because the I-360, when used for a widow, does not appear to require an I-864.

Mark,

That's a good point and citation. How the I-360 is interpreted, however, by either the NVC or the Embassy, remains to be seen.

We still don't know whether the young lady has access to I-130 info (NOA's, NVC docs), and if she has someone in the U.S. who will obtain death certs for her. Without both of the latter,
she has a difficult road ahead.

My observatin of similar scenarios, when the petioner passed before the wife was in the U.S., has been that the petitioner's relatives do everything possible to keep the wife out of the loop.

That's the practical consideration here. That is really what a lot of this turns on. Because the original poster mentions that the wife wants to fly to the U.S. to attend the husband's funeral I would think that this means a good relationship with the in-laws. Sometimes in cases like this the in-laws really do think more in terms of "I don't think so much that I've lost a son, so much as gained a daughter." but certainly not always. There are other members here that have gone through similar situations (although they were already in the U.S. and already had adjusted status) and appear to have been on good terms with the in-laws. So you never know.

Anyways, I just wanted to make sure that the involved parties are aware of the USCIS Final Rule on the matter. No matter what, such a thing is a tragedy and it would be terrible for it to be unnecessarily made worse by USCIS paperwork problems.

She risks being accused by USCIS of using the visa inappropirately. How far USCIS would go after that is anyone's guess.

My advice is for her to work with the I-130/I-360 conversin and get to the U.S. legally.

Bardage,

Is this a totally different issue? The I-130 is normally filed at Chicago, and I don't know of an I-160 form.

Bardge!
It's obvious no one here on WOF knows [including me naman!] the correct procedure for your
friend.
My suggestion is for her to stay in the Philippines until she knows for sure what she can do with her K3 without jeopardizing her chance to immigrate.
Have her contact her ex husbands friend and see what support she has in the US.
She needs to get a certified death certificate as soon as possible for sure .
What is she doing now to make things happen?

She needs to obtain a copy of the death certificate (preferrably a 'true' or 'certified' copy).

She needs to find what the status of her I-130 petition is. She needs the case # especially. A copy of the NOA receipt for the I-130 was required for her K-3, hopefully she has a copy of that. It will have the case # on it. She should call the 800 number for USCIS for information on where she needs to send a copy of the death certificate for the automatic conversion from I-130 to I-360. The 800 number is 1-800-375-5283. She will probably also need to send a cover letter explaining when the death occurred, that her marriage was over two years old when the death occurred, that her husband was a U.S. Citizen at the time, and that they had already filed an I-130 for immediate relative.

In my opinion if she used the K-3 to go to America she risks being turned away at the point of entry (denied entry). She might be allowed thru as I can find nothing that says her K-3 is invalid, and the purpose of the K-3 is to travel to America to await the processing of her immigrant petition, which would still be 'in process'. But while that is what the law reads to me, I am not an immigration lawyer, and neither are the people that will decide whether she gets admitted or not. Of course, whether they know about the death depends entirely on what they ask her when she enters the country (she should not lie). If she feels it is important enough to risk being turned away at the point-of-entry (and thus 'wasting the airline ticket') then she might consider it.

Edit: The current average national processing time for an I-360 is 8.4 months: http://www.uscis.gov...00045f3d6a1RCRD

Some 800 numbers can be, I am not sure if USCIS is one of them. http://www.business....bt/tollfree.jsp

Hi guys!!!

know what????my friend is already here in FL!!!she flew with me!wowww!!the immigration did not even asked her...but well..we're hoping that everything will work out smoothly on adjustment of her status...tnx for your prayers guys!God is good..all the time!


Welcome to the U.S.A!

Out of curiousity, did she call the Embassy or anything?

She should probably call the 800 number now that she is in the U.S. to confirm where she needs to send the death certificate and if they would like her to send anything else.

Medical Exams – A caller explained that the civil surgeon who completed the medical exam used the wrong form and then wanted to charge an indigent refugee to reprocess the paperwork on the correct form. What recourse does an applicant have if this occurs?

USCIS Response: Customers should notify the Director of their local office when they have a complaint about a civil surgeon.

Again, that applies to people that have been married LESS THEN TWO YEARS. Not the case being discussed here, the subject here was married over two years.

Can't always rely on the USCIS "mis" information services answers.

As I mentioned before. She should get a attorney.

If she'd not out of status yet she soon will be.

It would be nice to know in case this occurs again if she did call the the embassy and if she did attend CFO and if so what happened in both cases.
