Customer reply replied 7 months ago
please help me:( shes all I have and my sister. does being in the military help? to bring her?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 7 months ago

I"m so sorry but I won't have good news about this. I hope you can rate me based on the service and not on whether it's good or bad news for you.

Unfortunately you cannot petition for your grandmother because she is not your parent nor did she enter adopt you befor you turned 16. If she has children in the US, they can petition for her through a family petition and then she can ask for a waiver.

At this point, she can apply for a tourist visa to visit you together with a 212(d)(3) Hranka waiver.

I wish I had better news or another option but I must be honest.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

Please kindly click "Finish by RATING" and choose a rating from the STARS ★★★★★. The question will NOT finish or close after you click and rate me. DON'T WORRY. It will stay OPEN after you rate me and I can continue to answer your follow up questions at no additional charge, if you have any.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

Again, if you have additional follow up questions for me, please ask and I will be happy to clarify. Your satisfaction is my #1 goal.

Any bonus you feel I earned is always very appreciated. For any NEW questions you have in the future that you would like only me to answer, you can begin the new post with the words "FOR JEN."
