Customer Question
I am filling out...

I am filling out an I 130 form for my husband. He came into the US with no visa or anything. Question C14 is asking how he entered the US. What do I put? Should I put Without inspection?

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Immigration Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

No I have not.

Lawyer's Assistant: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Immigration Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Immigration Lawyer should be aware of?

He recently was approved for DACA in Oct 2015

No, I am not filing either of those form. My husband came to the US when he was 13 years old on 2001. He came in with no visa or permission. I was told to write "NO INSPECTION" by a family friend but I read online that unless you came in before a certain year and filled out certain paperwork then he would not be able to gain residency.
Immigration Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago
Thank you.
So are you filling out a Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. I am Filing an I 130 form. He already was approved for DACA in October 2015.My question is regarding form I 130 section C14.
Immigration Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago
Okay, thank you.
Note that he may benefit under DACA, but if you wish to file the I-130 then of course, this is at yours/his discretion.
C-14 does give choice of "without inspection."
If he crossed the border illegally, then "without inspection" is the proper choice.
Please note that someone in his situation may also wish to explore the possibility of DACA, as mentioned. Finally if filing for I-130 while being here illegally, he may also wish to file an I-601A.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
