Customer Question
I am a Pakistani...

I am a Pakistani citizen employed in China. After my father died my mother (63, American citizen) was all alone and she decided to move with me. The problem we are facing is that she is in need of medical attention and because of a number of reasons, she isn't able to get that in China. She refuses to go to America alone because of the current issues that they are having with Muslims. She is quite interested in moving to Canada but not alone. Do I qualify to apply for immigration of any kind?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

Yes, my mother had filed some paper work to sponsor me back in 2011. and we are waiting since then

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?

No, not yet my mother needs medical attention now. and I am not sure how I can help her

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am married and have children. I spoke to you earlier too I can only pay via PayPal
