Comment: 

My wife and I have returned to the the US to continue our day to day activities. In India we got our Visa's with little hassle and had no problem running through immigration. I would like to thank you and your staff for their effort in deducing a way to get my family back to the US.

I received my 2nd finger printing notice which is suggestive my wife's GC and I485 application is unaffected.

Thanks.

Birth certificate problems for parents

I applied I-130 for my father to get his GC through Consular processing. I'm a US citizen myself. However I got RFE asking for his birth certificate. I have these queries: The supplemental documents for I-130 for parents as per USCIS application only need US citizen's birth certificate and not the parent's birth certificate. So I don't understand why RFE was issued at this stage? My father was born in the time when the birth certificates were not available. As per the dept of state reciprocity website, it clearly states: "Exceptions: Birth certificates are not available to persons born prior to 1968. " Since it is acknowledged by reciprocity that birth certificates are not available, do I still need to provide NABC (Non-Availability of Birth Certificate)?

Impact on US immigration for violation of other countries’ laws

I recently became US citizen and now planning to file for green card for my own parents from India. However, in past my parents overstayed on their visitor visa(6 months) in UK from 2002 to 2013. They applied for asylum in 2006 and case was going on but then they withdrew their file and then they were sent on their emergency passports(as their old passports were lost and expired, they were given white passport) to India. They had no other criminal activity there and also have No Objection Certificate from Police department of the city they were staying in UK. Now they have their new passports printed from India. I wanted to know that Does any of this situations in past makes it difficult for them to obtain permanent residency in USA?
