Humanitarian Reinstatement for Bangladesh
Humanitarian reinstatement approved for Client from Bangladesh whose U.S. citizen father filed an I-130 on his behalf but died years later. Client can now continue with his immigrant visa, with his mother as a substitute sponsor, rather than wait an additional 13 years for a new I-130. They cannot grant humanitarian reinstatement if the petitioner died while the petition was pending. A humanitarian reinstatement approved means that the I-130 petition continues. The death of petitioner and humanitarian reinstatement is the only realistic way to proceed forward with the I-130 petition. In certain circumstances, especially those filled out after appearing for an interview at a U.S. Consulate, it can take between 12 and 24 months.
