in nicaragua

So he doesn't file I-485. That is only if he is in the US.

Was he removed from the US? If so, for what reason? And when? How long was he in the US prior to removal?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
3 months ago for a denial of our 485 adjustment of status because i130 wasnt grandfather for him to adjust in usa had to be removed he has been here 8 years
he was put in removal in 2009 for a felony and the judge dismissed the NTA but was sent to nicaragua in 2009
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

No. It takes time to write an answer. You need to be patient.

Well if he was in the US illegally for more than 1 year, then he has to get a waiver for his unlawful presence. Otherwise, he has to wait for 10 years to be able to come back to the with the immigrant visa.First you need to file form I-824 to ask yo send the I-130 to the National Visa Center for processing. Once the case is at the US consulate, he will need to file form I-212 to get permission to reapply for admission after removal. He also has to file form I-601 to waive his unlawful presence of more than 1 year. If that is approved, he can apply for the immigrant visa.I hope that answers your questions.▼ RATING REQUIRED! ▼ Please remember to click on 4 or 5 stars (★★★★) on your computer screen. This is important because this is how I get credit for doing my job.
