Given the devastating impacts of the State Department’s unlawful “tiered approach” to immigrant visa prioritization on Green Card holders and their families, we will be filing a new mandamus lawsuit challenging that policy on September 27, 2021 (Registration for this lawsuit ends September 20).
These is only one category of impacted visa applicant families who can participate in the upcoming lawsuit:
(F2A) Spouses and Children of Permanent Residents
Eligibility to Participate
To be eligible, participants must be green card holders with approved I-130 petitions that have been transferred to NVC. Also, the visa applicant beneficiaries must have already been found Documentarily Qualified (DQ). (Click HERE to see a guide on if you are DQ or not). If visa applicant’s CEAC status says “Ready,” that means the file is at the embassy, and that is okay to participate also.
Note: Diversity Visa Selectees are not eligible to participate in this lawsuit.
Note: Iranian Visa applicants who are current or former members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), are not eligible to participate.
Costs to Participate
The cost to participate will be $1,000 now, and $1,000 upon entry of spouse and children into the United States. The cost to participate in this lawsuit will not depend upon the family size. For example, the total cost for a spouse of a green card holder will be $2,000. The total cost for a spouse of a green card holder with four derivative child beneficiaries will be $2,000.
The initial payment to participate, for all family sizes, will be $1,000. The final payment upon entry into the US, for all family sizes, will be $1,000.
