I am filing I-130 form for my mother who lost her refugee status (immigration from Russia) back in 2001. My mother missed her deadline which expired in February of 2001.We had an elderly relative in a poor condition that time, and she couldn’t leave that person on her own. While she stayed in Russia, I immigrated to the US with my husband in 2001. My mother has visited me in the US several times since then. Now I am trying to reunite with her by applying for a green card. How do I approach this question 16? Do I need to provide any additional details along with I-30 application? Can it negatively influence my application?
Many thanks in advance,
