Hi there! Thank you for using this service. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be helping you with your questions today.What do you mean by you were "planning to file I 600 through the US citizen son"? The I-600 is for orphans. Who is the orphan? Are you talking about the I-601 Waiver? Where is the father now? Has he been in the US continuously since December 21, 2000?
Hi James, Sorry, I meant an I-601 Waiver with an I-130 petition. Yes, the father has continuously resided in California since January 2001 (not December 2000).
