Is it necessary to apply for green card for both parents together? Can I apply just for one?
I am a US citizen and wish to apply for green card for my mother who lives in India; my dad (also in India) does not wish for getting one
right now (maybe later). I have already filed the l-130 application on behalf of my mother (which is under review right now)

So, does this scenario, where my father is not applying for green card at the moment, hurt the chances of getting one approved for my

Do I need to present specific reasons for the same at any point in the consular process?

Ps: They are still in intact marriage

I did not file I-130 for anybody HOWEVER, I did filed I-864A for my husband's mother which is still on process. My question is shall I say YES or NO for that question in the I-130 application?
Thanks guys!

immigrant visa
on the ds-260 they ask for all previous addresses for my wife from the time she was 16. I start entering all that but they say there's a gap of over a month. Also I get an application error page and told to try later. Who can remember addresses from decades ago?

Affidavit of Support- form I-864. Petitioning Sponsor is homeless
I’m the applicant for IR5 visa. The petition was approved in 2015. At the time, the petitioning sponsor, my American daughter, provided her tax forms and signed form I-864. We had to find a joint sponsor as the petitioner did not have sufficient income. We submitted form I-864 for the joint sponsor. Later, I was called for an interview at the Consulate and was told to submit the joint sponsor’s wife’s approval as they file taxes jointly. At that point I gave up and never sent what they requested. But in December 2019 the consulate sent me a request to appear for an interview at the end of which I was told that the case will go to administrative processing. To sum up, currently, they’re processing an immigrant visa for me and have requested new documents. I have a new financial sponsor ready. But my daughter, the petitioner has been jobless and homeless for a while. She can’t sign or provide any documents. My question is: Can I submit the petitioner’s I-864 which she signed in 2015, with a letter of explanation?

I-94 expired, I-797 valid, H1B - COVID-19 times
Hi, I have read some of the experiences here but none of them relate to Covid-19 times.

My situation is as follows :
- Today is July 16, 2020
- My I-94 expired on April 12, 202
- My old passport expired on April 13, 2020 (which is the reason my I-94 was only valid until April 12, 2020)
- My I-797 and My H1B Visa on my old passport dont expire until Sept 13, 2021
- My new passport got re-issued to me on Feb-18-2020, and expires on Feb-18-2030

At POE, when the latest I-94 was stamped, it was Sept 13, 2019. And my plan was: when I get a new passport, I will leave the country for a vacation sometime in 2020 and come back and get the new passport stamped and a new I-94. But Due to Covid-19 closures starting March 7 (CA), I had to abandon this plan.

As I understand I may be in violation of some sort, this is new to me, what are my options without leaving the country? I understand going to CBP may be risky??
Any advice will be very much appreciated.
