Wife and I live in the US. Wife recently obtained Green card this year. We would like to bring her parents from India. Her parents are Indian citizens. Can we bring her parents here from India so that they can stay with us permanently? Do we fill out the normal I-130, I-485?

You need to prove that you are eligible for the card. If you are a "tax resident," that is, one who works, but has been lawfully or unlawfully physically present for 183 days in the U.S., then seek the help of an accountant or tax attorney who understands how you can secure an ITIN. You...Read more »

As a response to the notice of intent to deny, advise the USCIS that you did not receive the RFE and request it be resent to you. If you moved and did not change your address it will be considered your fault and you may be required to refile.
