Your reasoning hinges on the notion that parents are necessarily household members. On a purely formal level, it's not the case, it's an additional material requirement thus explicitely ruling out family reunification with parents qua parents. You wrote: That way, I think, the majority of the parents would anyway qualify for residence even if they are in no ...

Being born or living abroad is not in itself an obstacle. If your father was French when you were born (and you can document all that) then by default you are French yourself. What does make a difference is your age, how long you and your father lived abroad and how long ago he last applied for a passport. The reason for that is that French citizenship can ...

Yes. The I-130 petition and I-485 for Adjustment of Status can be filed concurrently if a visa number is immediately available for the person's category (as determined by USCIS's Adjustment of Status filing chart). See 8 CFR 245.2(a)(2)(i)(B-C): (B) If, at the time of filing, approval of a visa petition filed for classification under section 201(b)(2)(A)(i),...

But my husband needs to register, is that right? That is correct. If he needs to register, will we need to show some rent agreement? Possibly. See Carte de séjour de membre de la famille d'un citoyen de l'Union/EEE/Suisse. As far as I can tell, though, temporary accommodations should be sufficient, including those obtained through AirBnb. Specifically, ...

The normal case for a parent joining a child is that the parent must be the child's dependant. That is the explicit provision of the directive (2004/38/EC, article 2(2)(d)). Since your son is 16, and you are his carer, that is clearly not the case here. There are court cases that create a right for the carer of a minor EU citizen to join the EU citizen in ...

Forget about the £18,600. That only applies to people who do not benefit from the EU free movement system (nor from the EU Settlement Scheme that is replacing it). For an EEA family permit, as well as for an EUSS family permit, there is no need to prove any level of income. See https://www.gov.uk/family-permit. For an EUSS family permit, it does not appear ...

The country of chargeability is generally the country of birth. The only exception that takes citizenship into account applies to people born in the US. See 8 USC 1152(b). Therefore, unless the brother was born in the US, he will be placed in the India queue. The sponsor's nationality does not matter, nor does the sponsor's country of chargeability under ...

The current (Sep 2020) visa bulletin shows that for the F4 category for people born in India, visa numbers are currently available for priority dates (i.e. for I-130 filed) before March 8, 2005 (about 15.5 years ago). So if the wait remains the same in the future, you can expect a visa number to be available for your petition in about 2029 (though the wait ...

For the status as a non-EU family member, dependency is the main keyword that must be fulfilled. As to whether another form of residence permit is possible, where you serve as a financial sponsor, is something you must ask the Maltese authoraties directly since it would based solely on Maltese national laws. Registering your non-EU family members in another ...

The government website on the matter says you require: Séjour régulier L'étranger, à l'origine de la demande de regroupement, doit résider depuis au moins 18 mois en France avec un des titres suivants : Carte de séjour d'au moins 1 an (mention salarié, vie privée et familiale, étudiant visiteur, etc.) Carte de résident ou carte de résident ...

US Immigrant visas cannot be extended. However: Because your inability to travel to the US is for reasons outside of your control, you can have the visa replaced (paying once again any required fees) before the end of the fiscal year. You should contact the consulate that issued the visa for information about this option. If you've done the above and the ...

Do you actually have an EU Blue Card Visa, i.e. does the stamp say EU Blaue Karte? Check what type of visa you had received. It is possible that you have a §4 BeschV type visa meant for managers and specialists (colloquially called Specialist Visa). This is typically what they issue to IT specialists with no university diploma or diploma that isn't directly ...

Changing your address to outside the USA could signal that you're abandoning your residency in the USA or that you don't live in the USA at all. It may be safer to either rent a Post Office Box or Private Mail Box. There are some private mail box services that will even open and scan your mail for you - and send the scanned images anywhere in the country. ...
