Immigration/Naturalization

questions & answers

Question: My brother-in-law was petitioned 20 years ago to come to the US by his stepmother but he did not avail because he was angry at his father. He is now 38. Can he reopen the petition and come to the US?

Answer: Immigration to the United States is regulated by the federal government, rather than individual states. Additionally, laws and regulations which apply to individual cases may have changed over the period of years since the petition in question was initiated. Proceedings in immigration law can be complex, and this site can only provide information. For these reasons, you may wish to contact an attorney for further information or for advice about your specific case.
