B-2 Extension Granted for Mother of Lawful Permanent Resident
Our immigration lawyers in Philadelphia assisted the mother of a U.S. Permanent Resident to extend her B-2 status for a 6 month period. The mother had entered the United States in B-2 status. The purpose of her trip was to visit her son and his wife who are U.S. Permanent Residents and her 5 year old grandson (their child) who is a U.S. Citizen. She was residing with her son and his family. She had had previously been to the U.S. to visit her son and his family many times and had always timely departed the United States within 6 months of her initial entry. Her son and his wife were expecting another child and they wanted her to stay in the United States for an additional 6 months to help care for the new child. She purchased a plane ticket to depart the United States within 6 months. We provided evidence that her son would provide her room, board and living expenses and her son executed a Form I-134 Affidavit of Support evidencing that he would be financially responsible for her during the extension of my stay in the United States. We also provided evidence of ties to her home country including her pension and savings accounts and the deed to my house. USCIS approved the 6 month extension of status request.
