This answer was rated:

I am a filing my mom I-130 form, but my dad who brought me to America put on my paper that she is deceased.
What should I do?

Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.

I need more information.

This could be a fraud issue.

Why did he put that on your papers?

What was his status when he filed for you? Citizen?

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He was married to someone else

Is that how he got his green card?

Did he divorce your mother legally?

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I divorced my mom legally

Then why did he put she was dead?

I need to understand this to be able to answer you correctly. Did he not know she was alive? Did she abandon you and disappear?

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He did not know she was a life

OK.

Did you know or did she disappear and now you just found her?

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I don't know

Did you know if she was alive?

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I found out that she was alive before I came here in 2007.


she and my dad are from Mauritania, but was leaving in Senegal and I have senegalese citizenship.

Great, this is getting more helpful.

Did the consul ask you anything about your mother or did you know she was alive when you filled out the immigrant visa application?

Did you lie on the application that she was dead when you knew she was alive?

That is very important.

And how old were you when you went on the visa interview?

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I lie on the application that's what my dad told me say. I was 21 at that time

Then you cannot file for your mother.

You risk having your file re-opened and being stripped of your citizenship.

What I Need to do if I did not register for selective service before I go to my citizenship interview I am 26 years old now

This is a different topic/issue.

JA rules allow you to ask unlimited follow-up questions in the same thread for the same issue.

You will need to begin a new question thread for this new problem.

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
What do I need to do to bring her here

You cannot go back and fix a fraud without risking being deported.

Judith

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Can I bring her as my adoptive mom

No. Adoptions have to take place prior to your 16th birthday.

That is also a lie and fraud.
