Hi, I'm in a major dilemma and was hoping someone on here had some insight as to how to proceed further.
  1. I moved to the US about 10 years ago and has been here since. My green card came through 6 months ago through my employer.
  2. My dad came to the US some time after I did, overstayed, got his green card and US passport through whatever means, and within that time frame divorced my mom.
  3. My younger sister came after a while also, didn't want to study so went out of status, but later also managed to get her green card.
For obvious reasons (see #2 and #3), my mom has not been able to secure the visitor's visa. Not during my two graduations, and not when my baby was born. While I see where the US Consulate is coming from, my mom is ageing quick and I can't just let her live alone anymore. I was hoping she would be able to come visit every year for a month or two and I could go back for some time. But it's just not looking possible. At this point, the only alternative I see is to give up everything and return to Nepal.

Therefore, I was hoping for any advice in terms of what I might be able to do? Would consulting with a immigration lawyer be helpful? Should I write a letter to the Consulate? Anything else?

If your sister is a green card holder for a while, she could file for citizenship. Once a citizen, she can sponsor your mother for green card. It is probably the most secure way.

The best way is to apply for her permanent resident card. She might have to wait little longer if you or your sister have green card only. It would be much faster if one of you were US citizen.

I don't think reason #2 and #3 have anything to do with her tourist VISA. It is obvious, if your children are residents of the US, there is less chance you will return Nepal.

Don't be emotional and make wrong decision. Best of luck man!
