My husband’s uncle filled for (my in-law’s) family petition in 2006. Unfortunately, uncle passed away last month, I was hoping that I will get an immigration petition approved in two years, or so after my husband gets a green card from his uncle’s petition (Please note, I was not included in initial immigration petition since we got married in 2015). Will my husband and his family’s petition continue with the normal approval process even though the petitioner died?
You have a very complex situation and you must therefore retain the right type of attorney and fast. More specific information and an in person consultation and document review are critical to obtaining enough information to provide you with meaningful advice. Immigration is an extremely complex and technical area of law. This is not merely a matter of filling out forms. What you do not know can have grave consequences and even prevent you from obtaining immigration benefits. You need to retain an experienced immigration attorney for any immigration matter or you may throw away your future. Do not let geographic restrictions get in the way of retaining the best attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
