Humanitarian Reinstatement of I-130 Petitions

Though we always think that once a petition has been filed for us by our relatives in the US, there are only very minor roadblocks we can expect along the way. This is the case most especially if the petition has been checked for accurateness and veracity and has been forwarded to the National Visa Center waiting for priority date. Nothing else should worry us and we can just go on living while the priority date becomes current. Or so we think.

Unfortunately, there are many cases wherein the petitioner dies before or even after the petition has been approved. This is due to the fact that US immigration process has a huge backlog in some foreign countries that it takes several years before a visa becomes available for an applicant. The US immigration law regulations put the petition automatically revoked during these cases. A lot of beneficiaries of a US immigration petition find themselves surprised that the petition for them is no longer valid once the petitioner dies.

For some time, many thought this situation was a dead end and that there is no chance they can acquire any immigration benefits. However, there is a way to appeal for the revival of the petition and this is called the “Request for Humanitarian Reinstatement” or also called “Request for Humanitarian Revalidation”. Humanitarian Reinstatement was made available to cover these kinds of situations.

For a Humanitarian Reinstatement to be applicable to a certain case, the petition must have been approved before the death of relative petitioner. The first thing that the beneficiary must arrange is to have a substitute sponsor who may file for an affidavit of support. This should be someone who can establish the means to maintain an annual income amount equal to at least 125 percent of the Federal Poverty line.

The qualified substitute sponsor should be at least 18 years or age and has a domicile in the US. This includes the spouse, parent, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sibling, child (if at least 18 years of age), son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, grandparent, grandchild of a sponsored alien or a legal guardian of a sponsored alien.

In evaluating requests of Humanitarian Reinstatements, here are some of the factors being considered:

1. Disruption of an established family unit
2. Hardship to US citizens or lawful permanent residents
3. If beneficiary is elderly or in poor health
4. If beneficiary has had lengthy residence in the United States
5. If beneficiary has no home to go to
6. Undue delay by DHS or consular officer in processing petition and visa
7. If beneficiary has strong family ties in the United States.

The Attorney General has the discretion to decide if a valid humanitarian reason does not warrant for the revocation of the petition.

For cases such as this, the primary beneficiary of the petition should check with an immigration lawyer if his/her case can be covered by the Humanitarian Reinstatement. The immigration lawyer should be able to evaluate the beneficiary’s case to determine if he/she can indeed file for such request.

  • jon

    what if my the case is the benefeciary found out that the petitioner w/c is the wife , was cheating on her , then the husband got major depression, lost the job, then they got separated and is going to be divorced soon. The question is, what should the husband do? or what’s gonna happen?

    • US-Immigration-Info

      Hi Jon, a family-based petition of a US citizen or legal permanent resident spouse works by filing a petition for the wife/husband living in a foreign country. If a pending application is withdrawn, the petition ends instantly. This leaves the beneficiary with no chance of going to the US through the spouse. It is still recommended to seek the help of an immigration lawyer for legal advice.

  • My aunt is a beneficiary.Her petitioner who is her father died last January 16, 2010 while she was medical examination. She was delayed because she has to go for a treatment- Direct Observed Therapy (DOT).Her visa was already paid and she has already an appointment for interview. She just was delayed because of the DOT for 3 months. What will happen to her petition? Is she covered with the Humanitarian Reinstatement? What will she do?

  • Our petition is an F3 category. My father, my mother and my 2 siblings who are under 21 years of age immigrated already to the US. I was left alone here in the Philippines because I am already 23 years of age. What will happen to my case? Am I granted with the Humanitarian Reinstatement? How long will it take for me to follow them in the US? Cam I go to the US temporarily as a tourist while waiting for my petition?

  • Lester

    I’ve been reading a lot of stories about the petitioner dying and the beneficiaries qualifying for humanitarian reinstatement. But I hardly see any information about the beneficiary dying. In my case, my son (beneficiary) died. His petition has been approved. What will happen to his family. Can I write a letter of humanitarian reinstatement so his family can come here? I look forward to reading your replies.

  • Grace

    My husband was petitioned by his mother (F3) category way back in 1994. However in 2005 she passed away. We made a humanitarian appeal but is was denied. Will we still be able to reverse that decision?

  • Raden

    how long will it take for the USCIS to process an application for HR?

  • abby

    My family was petitioned by my veteran grandfather in 1993, unfortunately he died in 2006. I married a US citizen and now my mom received a letter last month from USCIS regarding the F3 petition for the choice of agent. Can I be a substitute sponsor for my family?

  • erin

    My mother’s priority date is April 1992 and became current just this year.My grandfather died 2 years ago.My Mother applied for humanitarian reinstatement this year,and sadly ,we received the unfavorable decision from USCIS regarding her application exactly on her birthday, 04 Nov. 2010. We feel sad for our 62 yr old mother knowing her earnest desire to reunite with her 10 brothers and sisters in the U.S. Although it was stated in the notice by the USCIS that there is NO APPEAL on the decision, is there any other way to ascertain her case, like consulting it to the BIA or immigration court?

  • Thor

    How long it would take for Humanitarian Reinstatement by USCIS to process whether it is approved or denied?

  • ROMEO

    I have a I-130 approved petition before my father(petitioner) died in the year 2000. Based on the above (emails), probability of REINSTATEMENT of revoked I-130 is not sure. In this connection, can the U.S. Immigration consider to give a Visitor’s or Tourist visa to the DENIED applicant?

  • Faith

    Me and my brother have an approved petition from our father, our priority date is Nov. 2000, we lost our mom when we were kids so our dad is all we have left. Unfortunately, our father died a couple of months ago, and we have been waiting for that petition for 10 years, we both didn’t get married or have families because of that petition, what’s more devastating is that the petition came two weeks after our father was laid to rest. The only relatives we have in US are our cousins and 1 uncle and 1 aunt. Can we still file for a humanitarian revalidation?

  • my uncle petioned his sons & daughters
    10 yrs ago and the petition was approved. sometimes in 2005 my uncle died and the visa approval were released on sept. 2010. the beneficiaries are not in the u.s. can they apply for humanitarian revalidation?. also they only have me
    as their first cousin to act as a substitute sponsor. can i be such?. pls reply back..

  • hi, my mom U.S citizen presently is in yigo guam. the u.s immigration was given a form i-130, and form i-864 to her.. now the form i-130 was already filed attached w/ a letter coming from the benificiary.. is it just right to file w/ the attatched letter? (letter stating that my mom will be my substitute sponsor..)or would it be suppose to be the letter coming directly from me? please advise me what to do…God bless..

  • JR

    My brother(beneficiary)has been scheduled for visa interview on June 23, 2011. Unfortunately our father (petitioner) passed away on April 23, 2011. My question is is it better to file for a HR before he goes for the interview or it is better for him to go to the interview and see what the American consul say?

  • Lizma

    Hi….. Just for few questions, how long will be the revalidation of my mother’s immigrant visa petition? How long will it take before she will immigrate to US? We took 19 years for the petition to be current. Until the petitioner died this march 2011. There would be a reinstatement process, but i want to know how long it will take?? Pls kindly response. Thank u…

  • myrna

    My father petitioned us in 1992 and our priority date was finally reached and came out last year in January, 2010 my father paid for my visa and affidavit of support but due to some errors made in our dox we were not able to send immediately our accomplished ds 230 until my dad died in June 1, 2011. What will we do next now. NVC had send back our accomplished ds 230…

  • margarita

    Our Father petitioned us in 1992. the priority date came in January 2010. We accomplished the ds 230 and my father paid for our visa three of us together with our family, F3 category. We submitted our accomplished ds 230 in May due to some clerical errors in our some of the required birth certificates of the other members of the family. Our dad died in June 1, 2011. Our papers were withdrawn and revoked. Do we still other option ti reactivate our petitions/ Most of our siblings are in the Us and I have a sick child whom I would like to be treated in the US. What can we do. pleas. thanks

  • MYRNA

    I tried to get in touch wit USCIS thru the suggested address indicated at the homepage, with the intention to inquire on what to do next regarding our withdrawn papers from the NVC,my email bounced back. My siblings had already paid our visa fee and affidavit of support. Our priority date is FEB 1992, but our petitioner died in June 1, 2011, . what should we do next?

  • oscar

    I was petitioned by my u.s. citizen father in 1992. Unfortunately on Feb. 1996 my father passes away. Years passes and on May, 2010 I received a letter attach a form “Choice of address and Agent” coming from National Visa Center to be filled-up return to them. Until now the form is still with me, thinking that my petitioned is hopeless, until I decide to look for 2nd. time if their is still a chance to apply a “humanitarian reinstatement” in my case. First, am I covered in this humanitarian reinstatement? If I apply, is my case consider to be strong to be given approval?I have relatives up to 2nd degree cousins residing in U.S. they are almost U.S. citizens,I do not have immediate relatives that I know. what will be my chances of my case.

  • Frank george

    If beneficiary dies than all derivative beneficiaries become automatically loosers

  • Frank george

    Regarding to “humanitarian reinstatement of I-130″ ,does this apply for beneficiaries that are not living in USA?
    Quick answer please!!

  • red731

    it will take 3-10 months if u will apply for humanitarian reinstatement…if you have a substitute sponsor who is your relative then apply for HR…we applied for
    HR last year and we(4 of us) received a favorable response….

  • SHEEZA

    HI RED731, I HAVE THE SAME CASE AS MENTIONED ABOVE. MY MOTHER WAS THE MAIN PETITIONER FOR MY TWO SIBLINGS BACK HOME. I AM A US CITIZEN AND RECENTLY FILED FOR REINSTATEMENT AND NOW WAITING FOR NVC ANSWER. I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU WHAT WAS YOUR REASON AND HAVE YOU GOTTEN YOUR VISAS YET? THANKS IN ADVANCE.

  • joy

    (i reposted because i put a wrong email add) My three brothers were petitioned by my US citizen father. All of them were approved, but while they were doing all the papers, my father passed away. We did not have any immediate relatives that can support them there. Is there a possibility that they can go there and in what way? Thanks. God bless

  • marciana narcisa san juan garcia

    its so frustrating that waiting for those long yrs. hoping for nothing-since 1993-coz our veteran father had passed away last aug.2009-yet i strived hard,spent a lot of money just to be able to come here as a visitor to be with my twin sister and grandson-will stay for 6 months and will come back maybe a yr or two until my visa expire for ten yrs-when in fact supposedly our petition was approved and my twin sister is willing to replace my father-and will support me so i can stay with them-because im alone in our hometown-and far from my brothers and sisters-and applying for humanitarian revalidation-i’ve been watching and had read so many article bout this-chances-from Pres.Obama-and im here already in Las Vegas Nevada-hoping i could stay here ,i even wrote Mr.president,pleading to grant my request but no reply-how much money do we need to spend-again and again-coming here every year for 10 yrs.-fees for the lawyers-what a pity for those siblings of those veterans who fought for us-yet no chance-no money -how can we able to acquire this privilige our hope and dreams

  • red731

    @ sheeza: NVC is not the proper agency to file for HR,but you must inform NVC that the original petitioner died once the petition becomes current,attached a copy of the original petitioner’s death certificate to save time(once you inform NVC about the death of the original petitioner they will ask you to submit it),once NVC received the original petitioner’s death certificate then NVC will return the said petition to USCIS,then you can request for HR to USCIS…we requested for HR with out hiring an immigration lawyer and we got a favorable response( me and my 3 brothers)…in fact 2 of my brothers are already in the US now and i will be having my interview this coming january 30, 2011 and another brother is already documentarily qualified and waiting for his interview schedule….

  • SHEEZA

    HI RED731,
    THANKS FOR YOUR ANSWER I WAS WAITING FOR YOUR RESPONSE BADLY. WELL I HIRED A LAWYER AND PROVIDED HIM WITH AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT ALREADY AND ALL THE NECESSARILY DOCS. I THINK HE FILED WITH THE PROPER DEPARTMENT EITHER WITH NVC OR USCIS. I DONT KNOW ABOUT THAT. ITS BEEN A MONTH ALREADY AND WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANYTHING YET. I HAVE A QUESTION TO YOU WHO WAS YOUR SUBSTITUTE SPONSOROR AND HOW LONG DID USCIS TOOK TO ANSWER YOU BACK? WHAT WAS YOUR REASON FOR HR? IN MY CASE MY HUSBAND AND I ARE THE SUBSTITUTE SPONSORORS. TELL ME MORE ABOUT YOUR CASE. I AM VERY ANXIOUS ABOUT MY SIBLINGS’ CASE. THANKS IN ADVANCE AND GOOD LUCK IN YOUR INTERVIEW. DO NOT FORGET TO UPDATE ABOUT YOUR INTERVIEW. I WILL PRAY FOR YOU.

  • red731

    @ sheeza: my eldest brother is our substitute sponsor who is a US citizen….we requested for hr at the same time last august 2010,2 of my brother’s hr were approved on december 2010 and me and another brother were approved only last june of 2011…so all in all UCIs will grant the approval or denial in 3 months to a year….in fact my letter is very simple ,but i provided them with complete documents…i think if you said that you already hired a lawyer,the lawyer knows what he will do…how much is the lawyer’s fee?i will update you in my interview…but my 2 brothers’ interview went well,i hope mine as well,hoping for the best…thanks for the prayers…

  • SHEEZA

    HI RED731,
    MY LAWYER CHARGED ME $2500 IN TOTAL. AND ALL THE PAPERS ARE FILED AND DONE WITH. LETS HOPE FOR THE BEST FOR MY SIBLINGS TOO. I NEVER ASKED YOU WHO WAS YOUR MAIN PETITIONER. IN MY CASE, MY MOM WAS THE MAIN PETITIONER. WELL I HAVE TO SAY YOUR BROTHER IS A VERY GOOD MAN WHO PROVIDED YOU WITH A AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT. MY HUSBAND GAVE HIS AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT ON BEHALF OF MY MOM. WELL I WILL KEEP CHECKING THIS WEB TO SEE YOUR INTERVIEW RESULT. GOOD LUCK AGAIN!

  • red731

    @ sheeza: my late father was our original petitioner…goodluck to your siblings’HR too,hope it will be granted..in what category are your siblings being petitioned?before you migrate to the USA what country are you from?

  • SHEEZA

    HI RED,
    HOW ARE YOU? HOW DID YOUR INTERVIEW GO?

  • DOLLY

    Hi! I want to petition my parents but these are my problems.
    1. My father has prostate cancer ( He choose not to have a surgery at all. It is almost stage 4 and according to the doctor from my country that he has 5 years to live from the time he has been diagnosed) and he wishes to come and to visit us.
    2. I am jobless, but my husband is working.
    3.Where will I get their insurance?
    4. My mother’s maiden name on my birth certificate is wrong and my mother and my siblings has the right spelling. Do I need to reissue a new birth certificate from the place of my birth or is it OK to have affidavit of support instead?
    Any advice before I start the process.
    Thank you so much

  • Cecilia

    Petitioner husband (LPR) died before a visa number was available for his wife and four children (three under 21 and one already 21). Beneficiaries have ALWAYS resided in Mexico. Would they qualify to have their petition reinstated or revalidated? If they do, can a third-party unrelated to the family, become a substitute sponsor for an Affidavit of Support?

  • SHEEZA

    HI,
    DEAR CECILIA, GO TO USCIS.GOV AND YOU WILL FIND AN ANSWER FOR YOUR QUESTION IN DETAIL. BUT FROM WHAT I KNOW YES DECEASED PETITIONER’S SON, DAUGHTER, WIFE,BROTHER, PARENTS, AND SISTERS WHO ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS CAN TRY TO REINSTATE THE CASE THROUGH A PROPER IMMIGRATION LAWYER. BUT I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THE NON-RELATIVE.PLEASE FOR FURTHER MATTERS CHECK USCIS.GOV OR THE LAWYER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK!

  • red731

    @ sheeza: me and my brother’s interview went well, 4 days after our interviews we received our visa…the interview was not that difficult,the consul only asked me who is my petitioner,where does he lives,whats his work,what is my relationship to my petitioner,is he married?whats the name of his wife and what is her work,do they have children?when was the last time i saw my petitioner(brother),then the consul asked me if i have a picture with me and my petitioner in it,have i been out of the country before?after that the consul said that my visa is issued…thats it….

    any news on your siblings HR request?

  • Loney

    Hi Red,

    Congratulations first! It seems that you are the only one that I know from our country who is bold and kind enough to tell us about hr and its success. I hope others will come forward too. Of course, we want “overseas hr” to be as effective as the hr that occurs within the US as to the recent law of Pres. Obama. I have a question- the USCSIS sent a letter to my friend that his petition was revoked because of the death of his petitioner. But below is a note that there is no appeal for this decision. Is this the usual letter received from USCIS as to this case? Can my friend apply for humanitarian reinstaement? Will he write NVC regarding this? Thanks!
    Loney

  • SHEEZA

    HI RED 731,
    MANY MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU. I AM VERY HAPPY FOR YOU VERY GOOD NEWS. SO WHEN ARE YOU PLANNING TO FLY TO USA?
    WELL ONE OF MY SIBLING’S STATUS HAS MOVED TO INITIAL REVIEW FROM POST DECISION ACTIVITY. I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM USCIS AND THEY INFORMED ME. WELL AT THIS POINT MY LAWYER SAID THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THEY HAVE APPROVED IT AND NOW PREPARING IT FOR INTERVIEW BUT USCIS HAS NOT CLEARED IT YET. DID YOU HAVE THE SAME SITUATION AFTER FILING YOUR REQUEST. I MEAN TELL ME WHAT WAS IN YOUR FIRST LETTER THAT YOU RECEIVED FROM USCIS AFTER FILING REINSTATEMENT REQUEST. SO LET’S SEE WHAT NEXT WE ARE HOPING FOR THE GOOD.
    ANYWAYS ONCE AGAIN CONGRATULATIONS AND I HOPE YOU WILL BE COMING TO USA SOON. TAKE CARE.

  • Laleta

    Help. My sister had her interview December 2010,the consulate requested DNA test to verify my sister and mother relationship. We complied, test results soon provided and accepted January 2011. However due to the retrogression my sister priority date was not current. My mom died February 2012, what action should I take. My sister case is now current.

  • red731

    @ sheeza: thank you…i will be flying to the USA this coming May….when me and my 3 siblings filed our request for HR(August 2010),i signed in to the USCIS site so i can receive emails from them regarding our request,and after 3 months(december 2010) i received an email from USCIS,that 2 of my brothers request were granted,in that email they said that they reaffirmed the approval of my 2 siblings petitions and they returned the said petitions to the NVC for visa processing….then i emailed NVC and ask about the status of my 2 siblings petitions,after 3-4 weeks,i already received an email from NVC asking us to pay for the AOS and visa processing fee….with regards to me and my brothers HR request,after a period of 5 months(january 2011) has passed and we havent received any decisions on our HR request,i made a letter to the USCIS,asking them if they already made any decisions on our HR request,we havent receieved any reply from USCIS until May,and in that letter it said that they received our request for HR and has been requested for review but they do not have an estimated timeframe for how long it may take to review our request,because their office processes this case as their resources and priorities allow,but after a month(june 2011),i got an email from USCIS,and in that email they also reaffirmed the approval of me and my other brother’s petitions…

  • SHEEZA

    HI RED 731,
    WELL I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY EMAIL NEITHER MY LAWYER. ALL WE RECEIVED WAS A LETTER STATING THAT THE CASE IS IN INITIAL REVIEW. ITS NOT CLEARED YET IF THE CASE IS APPROVED OR NOT. YOU THINK I SHOULD SIGNED UP FOR THEIR EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS IN ORDER TO RECEIVE CLEAR VIEW OF THEM. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?

  • red731

    @ sheeza: you will never receive any email from USCIS unless you signed up to their website…you can even look up for any status update on your siblings petitions in their website if you know your siblings file receipt numbers…if you signed up for any status update on their website,you will receive an email earlier than you will receive a letter from them once they come up with any decision on your siblings petitions,so i guess it is better to sign up to their website so you can receive any notifications from them….the letter that you received from USCIS is not an approval of your sibling’s petition,it only said that the said petition is under initial review…if they approve your sibling’s HR,the letter will say that they are reaffirming the approval of the said petition and returned the said petition to the National Visa Center for visa processing….

    please update me also on any outcome of your siblings HR request….hoping also for the best…

  • I was wondering if you could help me draft request for hr

  • casper

    hey..my aunt(mom’s sister) had petitioned for us in 1992..and it was approved in2002..but by then she had expired..and we never looked into it later as they said there was no chance of getting it. i just saw this humanitarian reinstatement..can somebody please tell me if there is any chance for me to get my petition approved? my uncle that is aunt’s husband is in the us..can he be of any help for me in this case? please help me

  • hi anyone…about HR, MY common law husband and daughter have already priority no.approved on March 1997.On May 2006 they receive a letter from NVC steps on the the processing of their petition.We follow the steps and made a payment for affidavit of support because that was been asking for.Now the petitioner died on July while my husband and daughter were waiting for a visa because they already paid for it.The lawyer advised my husband to file HR but it turned down.The reason is the father or my husband is still alive and must continue to file as the petitioner. Now my Father in law is the petitioner of my Husband and daughter. My question is, Is there a chance to re validate HR regarding the case of my common law husband and daughter.It was so depressing that they were near to finish the processing and suddenly the petitioner died.

  • I would like to ask if you could give me samples of a format for HR.

  • Wilfred P. Alfeche

    Hi! in our case my grandfather died 4 years ago in the US while waiting for the petition he filed for us.. and only his brother and sister are there now in the US because my grandmother is already old and visually impaired so she needed to stay in the Philippines.. my grandfather’s brothers and sisters continue the petition he filed for us??? and become the sponsors in our case? can they file the humanitarian reinstatement for us???

  • ThePatientOne

    Hi! We applied HR for our I-130 petition last april 2012 and they said that current HR processing time is 18-24 months. Our substitute sponsor is our biological mother. How about you guys? How long did you wait before you get a response from the uscis?

    As beneficiaries of a dead petitioner, Did all of you receive a letter from USCIS regarding HR application? Did you follow the instructions that all you need is to write a letter and you will include the documents to support it? If you receive the HR letter what is the processing time there that was mentioned? You know what you are always asking questions and it is stupid to answer that if you haven’t receive an HR letter from USCIS?

  • cookie

    wilfred, your dead grandfather petitioned for you or was it your father or your mother that he petitioned and you are the derivative? A spouse, parent, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sibling, child at least 18 years of age, son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, grandparent, or grandchild of the beneficiary may qualify as a substitute sponsor.

    just answer my questions above and we will start from there?

  • Rodolfo C. Aragon

    I haven’t received a letter yet from the US-CIS informing me that my HR case has been denied, and it has been more than 24 months already, does this mean that my HR case is hopeless? I am still waiting as of this writing for the US-CIS response if my case has already been denied.

  • Hi! I want to know the full requirements (papers, payments, etc) to file the HR??
