View Full Version : Family based GC - Sponsor is convited during processing

Here is the situation:

1. US citizen applied for married brother immigration in 1998 or so
2. FOreign brother gets processing call from the US consulate, paperwork is submitted during local interview - all is good
3. In the mean time Sponsor's business gets litigated by state

Can the Foreign brother's immigration is in Jeopardy if the US citizien Brother's business is convicted of state crime? The business owned by brother was investaiged by state and found to have committed some financial irregularity and asuch is currently under investigation.

THis became known to the consulate processing foreign brother's immigration and are now holding the case until a judgement comes.

IS ther any rule / law that says that if the sponsor gets convicted of a business crime that he/she cannot file for siblings? or a current application underway can be stopped?

Any help or direction would be great.

I have read all the forms and cannot find anything where it asks for a criminal status of the sponsor - and even if the decision comes out (in court) against the US citizen brother, it is for his business.
