My mother-in-law is in very bad and rapidly deteriorating health, and she is having extreme difficulty taking care of herself. She is in Poland now. My wife and I cannot meet our debt obligations and support my mother-in-law if we moved to Poland. Therefore, we are trying to figure out a way to bring my mother-in-law to the U.S. She is 75 years old and disabled.
I am a U.S. citizen, but my wife just became a permanent resident six months ago. Is there any way that we can bring my mother-in-law to live with us in the United States so that we can take care of her (without having the $500K for an entrepreneurial visa)?
I cannot find any options, but I am not an expert. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
Tough scenario if your wife is not yet a citizen. BTW, you don't need $500K for an entrepreneurial visa. You can get an E-2 for Polish citizens for much lower than $500K (ex: $60k has been approved for Polish business). Thus, provided your mother-in-law is at all entrepreneurial/ managerial and has about $60-100K in cash to open a US business, that might be a way. Humanitarian parole might also be another option but it is not long-term (might be granted solely for the duration of her medical emergency). I would suggest consulting a lawyer since the viability of these options is fact-specific.
