I am a US citizen for 40 years, in good standing, widowed with no children. My husband passed away 7 years go. Both of us have been retired. Within the next 2 years, I need a dependable family member who I could trust in managing my medical/physical, and financial affairs. I prefer a relative who could provide me honest and sincere administration of my affairs. The nephew I have interest to come is highly educated to handle complicated matters on my behalf. In addition, I plan to advance his graduate degree on IT and engineering for complex challenges facing him ahead.
Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks
You likely cannot bring your nephew to the US to take care of you.
There is no category for a family-based immigration petition based on the beneficiary being a nephew of the petitioner.
As for employment-based, there is no category for household help (except for very specific situations)
Frankly, if your nephew were here to "advance his graduate degree on IT and engineering for complex challenges facing him ahead", where would he find the time to take care of you? Presumably, if he goes to school or to work, he would not be around to take care of you.
If he is going to school, perhaps he can get a student visa to come here to go to school.
You should review the specific facts with your attorney to find out your legal options.
It will be difficult for him to get a visitor visa to take care of you. He could apply as an F-1 student to a university and you could help him obtain it by paying for his studies. As an F-1, he could go to school and also take care of you.
