  • I need an invitation letter for my niece to visit us for four weeks.

    I currently work in the school system and my husband is an engineer. I am off for the summer and will like to come to visit me during my summer vacation. We can add in the letter that she is also coming to visit her grandmother, she is 79 years ...

    Mayra’s Answer

    Who has cognitive disability, the grandmother or the niece? I think it best for you to speak to an immigration attorney first. If the niece has a disability, she will be subject to scrutiny by the Embassy to ensure that she is not coming to the USA to overstay her visa and become a public charge. A denial could have consequences on future opportunities to come to the US so tread lightly before sending the niece to the Embassy which may result in a denial and a huge waste of time and resources. An immigration attorney can also help you setup the invitation properly to ensure approval if all requirements are met.

    Your mother should consult and attorney immediately. She may run into problems such as losing her residency completely. If she has not relinquished her domicile in the US, she may indeed renew her green card even though she is not in the US, she should also look into applying for a re-entry permit if her time outside the US is exceeding recommended amounts.

    Honestly Mr. Brinkmeier I am appalled at your flippant answer. The Young Lady asking this question should seek a face to face consultation with an immigration attorney experienced with domestic violence issues as my esteemed colleague Ms. Maiorova has so eloquently explained.

    Mayra’s Answer

    the CBP officers have broad discretion to deny entry. Your brother's frequent travels and long stays may have been seen as non-tourist in nature and perhaps they had other information not shared with him regarding what he did here while he stayed in the past. It would be best for your brother to have an in-depth consultation with a US immigration attorney to best strategize his ability to return to the US
