How to transport parents to the USA: instructions for immigrants

To apply for permission for your parents (mother and / or father) to live in the United States as a green card holder, you must be a US citizen at least 21 years old. Green card holders (permanent residents) cannot apply for parents' right to permanent residence in the United States, recalls US Citizenship and Immigration Services.

IMPORTANT! All of these documents must be translated into English. And translation quality often plays a decisive role in the approval or rejection of an application.

Certified translation of supporting documentation is extremely important when it comes to immigration petitions. As explained to ForumDaily in the translation company CVLanguages, certified translation means that the translator or language service provider, through a certified certificate, guarantees that the translation performed by him is an accurate and reliable representation of the original document.

Certified translations of documents for immigration procedures are recognized by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and other government agencies.

Of course, you can simply translate documents in Google or ask a friend and hope that everything will be correct, but a certified translation has a number of undeniable advantages.

Translating words with multiple meanings and complex sentences

There are words that in one language can have many meanings or depend on the context of the sentence in which they are applied. If an ambiguous word or complex expression in the translated document is not checked by a professional, it can lead to serious problems in the future. The document can simply lose its semantic component.

Understanding the cultural and social context

Translation using automated services does not take into account the cultural subtleties and established expressions present in any language. The word-for-word translation just doesn't work in this case. At the same time, the correct transmission of the information contained in the document is extremely important for the understanding of the situation by the immigration agent.

Company CVLanguages is ready to provide certified translation services carried out by experienced specialists to protect you from data leaks and mistakes that can cost you or your family immigration status.

CVLanguages is based in Seattle, Washington, but provides online services throughout the United States. Contact by phone (253) 455-8582 or by e-mail: translation@cvlanguages.org.

How to find out about the USCIS decision

USCIS will notify you if your I-130 petition is approved or denied. If approved and your parent is outside the US, he or she will be advised to contact the local US consulate to complete visa processing.

If your parent is in the United States, he or she may be eligible to file a form I-485, “Application for Registration of Permanent Residence or Change of Status” at the same time as filing Form I-130.

Work permit

Your parents do not need to apply for a work permit after they are accepted as immigrants on their immigrant visa. If your parents are currently outside the United States, they will receive a passport stamp upon arrival in the United States. This stamp will confirm that they are allowed to work in the United States prior to receiving a permanent resident card.

If your parents are in the United States and have applied for permanent resident status by completing Form I-485, they are eligible to apply for work and travel permits while their case is pending. Your parents should use Form I-765, “Application for work permit” and Form I-131, “Application for a travel document” to apply for a travel permit. The Form I-485 fee also covers Form I-765 and Form I-131 until a decision is made on the application to adjust status.

Note: if your parents have minor children abroad, these children (your siblings) cannot be sponsored in the same petition. After your parent becomes a permanent resident, he or she can file a new petition for any eligible relative.

What if the petition is rejected?

If your visa application is denied, the denial letter will tell you how to file your appeal and how long you have to file it. After your appeal form has been processed and the required fee is processed, the appeal will be referred to the Immigration Appeals Board. Why USCIS may reject a petition for family reunification and what to do in this case, read in the material ForumDaily.
