A Death in the Family: Widows and Survivor Benefits

Price: $25.00

How can a widow immigrate after the US citizen spouse dies? Does it matter if the deceased spouse had previously filed an I-130 petition? What about derivative children? What if the surviving beneficiary is in one of the preference categories? Can they apply for a waiver of the unlawful presence bar if they have to consular process?  Join us as we answer these questions and detail eligibility for relief for widows, for survivors under section 204(l), and for those seeking humanitarian reinstatement.
