Q: my dad was approved for family reunion with me. He came to US with I-94 without interview. How can we continue our case?
I applied for family reunion with my dad while he stayed in Mexico as a tourist. He was approved for reunion and USCIS sent us to NVC. We submitted all the required documentation and NVC received them and tried to schedule an appointment for us in US Embassy of Juarez, Mexico. However, US embassy in Mexico only lets Mexican citizens or residents in for an interview. My dad came to US and the form I-94 was issued to him as an arriving alien. My question is how we can continue our reunion case here on the territory of USA? Should we contact NVC to move our interview to US or contact USCIS? I appreciate your answer in advance.
A: A case review is required for your submission. If you father was paroled into the United States there may be a possibility to adjust his status without Consular Processing. But that legal analysis can be determined only after a full case review.
