My parents came to the US due to my brother bringing them to the US. My brother never adjusted their status therefore overstayed for about 3years and they decided to go back to Panama. Two months later my dad passed away. My mom wants to see if she can come to the US. I am US Citizen, can that 10years bar be forgiven due to her age of 85. What are the chances that she can get it forgiven. thank you!
I am reclassifying this as an immigration law question, as opposed to Social Security. You should have better luck getting answers there.
I recommend consulting with an immigration attorney, as there are many variables in situations like you described that can impact whether your mother has the possibility of returning to the U.S. What was her status at entry? Did she request a change or extension of status? How much time has passed since your mother left the U.S.? If your mother is inadmissible due to unlawful presence and wishes to return within 10 years of her departure, it is very likely that she would require a waiver of inadmissibility and would need a "qualifying relative" (a spouse or parent who is a U.S. citizen or green card holder) in order to pursue that waiver. In light of the complexity of the issue, I recommend discussing with an experienced immigration attorney to ensure that there is a pathway to bring her back to the United States.
