Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
If they have never been in the U.S., then they should not have been in any immigration proceedings. You should check "NO". However, if they tried to get in in the past and were denied entry, it could be an "Exclusion" so you would have to put yes. But if they have never had that problem, then put "NO." Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge, if not, please do not forget to click ACCEPT. That is the only way that I can get paid a small percentage of your deposit. If you do not click accept, the website gets all of your deposit and I get nothing. When you click accept, you are not charged again and we can continue to communicate without additional charge if you have a few follow-up questions. If you would like to request me in the future, just put my name on the subject line. Positive feedback for my service to you (not the state of the law as it is) is always appreciated as well as any bonus if you think I deserve it. Thank you.
For you then it is Naturalization. You filed an N-400, took the exam, took the oath. You naturalized.
The I-864 comes later. And it will be an I-130 for each of them and yes, later on it will be an I-864 for each of them, but you need to wait for instructions before you file any I-864 since they are outside of the U.S.
One I-130 for one parent and one I-864 for one parent that is the principal immigrant.
Then the other I-130 for the other parent and another I-864 for that other parent and in that I-864, that parent would be the principal immigrant.
