Eligible Widow(er)s of Deceased U.S. Citizens must file I-360 Visa Petitions by October 28, 2011
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has stated that the deadline for eligible widow(er)s to file a Form I-360 visa petition is October 28, 2011.
If you are the widow(er) of a U.S. citizen who died before October 28, 2009 you may be eligible to immigrate to the United States if:
• You and your deceased spouse were married for less than 2 years when your spouse died and
• You file Form I-360 for Special immigrant classification as a widow/widower by October 28, 2011.
USCIS must receive your Form I-360 by October 28, 2011. Since you must file Form I-360 by mail or overnight courier, please be sure to ship it in time for USCIS to receive it no later than October 28, 2011.
