Is your sister intending to sponsor your mother for an immigrant visa to help her become a permanent resident?
Yes , we would like her to become a permanent resident
extending question 1:
is my mother eligible for a waiver in the first place? she was rejected under 212(a)(6)(c)(i) - misrepresentation and 214(b)
What are the timelines for the process beginning from application to approval and my mother to be here at earliest if everything is approved.
Question 5: Not answered initiallyMy sister does not work here in the US, can i being on H1b be a co-sponsor (i have tax returns and above poverty income...)??
QUESTION: Is my mother eligible for a waiver in the first place? she was rejected under 212(a)(6)(c)(i) - misrepresentation and 214(b)
As for 214(b), it does not result in a ban from the US. So the I-601 has nothing to do with this.
Fraud and misrepresentation is a completely different issue. With this finding, she is inadmissible to the US. So she needs to get form I-601 approved. Yes, she is eligible for I-601.
QUESTION: My sister does not work here in the US, can i being on H1b be a co-sponsor (i have tax returns and above poverty income...)??
ANSWER: You cannot be a joint sponsor. One of the eligibility requirements is that a sponsor must be either an American citizen or a lawful permanent resident.
My apologies for that not addressing this earlier. I was trying to get the formatting right and it looks like I accidentally deleted that question. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
