Asylum Refugee Relative petitions
In an effort to clarify regulations for those applying for Asylum in the US, the USCIS issued an information collection request on Form I-730, Refugee/Asylee Relative Petition. If you are a principal refugee admitted to the United States within the past 2 years or a principal asylee who was granted asylum within the past 2 years, you (the petitioner) may use this form to request that your spouse and unmarried children under 21 years of age (the beneficiaries) join you in the United States. The NVC typically reviews submissions between 1 to 4 months. This phase requires: Payment of all necessary fees. Submission of all essential documents. There is no cost to file this petition.
