    B2 Visa For Step MOM

    why a 'business visa?' who will take care of the 'farm' during her absence?

    Extend visitor visa stay

    you can file, but CBP admitted her for a month for a reason....what job does she have that awards a 3 month vacation? How long did she tell the CO she was planning to stay?

    221(G) in Visitor Visa Renewal

    most likely those long trips in excess of 6 months strongly suggest she was providing child care.....she will be quizzed in detail...

    Parents Visitor Visa rejection with 214(b)

    Now you are talking about having them come to provide child care.. ..something that is not allowed with a B2 visa...and a 'few months' suggests that the farm needs no help to run because there isn't one....and, however sad the situation is in the US, that fact does not change the aspect of current immigration law.....your parents will still have to overcome 214b, explain how they can leave their 'farm' for months on end and somehow convince the CO that they will not be providing child care (which is fact, what they will be doing)....and, as Joe said, YOU do not apply for them - they apply for themselves and are either approved or denied based on their OWN situation, not yours. Blunt perhaps, but that is the way it is,....who is, in fact, going to be taking care of the child while you go to work? That is a question that will be asked....and you saying that you have hired a nanny will not likely be believed (and said nanny could be fired the moment your parents arrive)...

    Gap between visits for parents

    Did they tell the CO during their interview that they were going to stay, say, two weeks, but have now stayed 6 months and are planning to stay even longer? You should know that COs can access certain entry/exit records and if they sample your relatives' and see the disparity, the CO can cancel their visa....no bona fide 'tourist' has legitimate reason to spend a year in the US unless they are working....

    depends on how much babysitting they wish to do.....

    Visitor Visa for parents , brother & neice

    minor children generally qualify through their parents...without this aspect of 'ties', the COs will believe that the child will be 'left behind' in the US, never to return. From my own experience as a former CO, I never issued a visa to a minor child unless I thoroughly interviewed BOTH parents B (or one if the other was deceased)....no excuses nor promises were accepted, as the specter of child abduction/leaving the child in the US was too great...I would have rather read letters from unhappy relatives about why the visa was not issued than the kind of letters people write when a child was abducted....and I promised myself I would never knowingly allow such an occurrence to take place at my window....ever....

    Gap between visits for parents

    why do they 'need' to remain so long? Providing child care is considered work and not allowed with a B2 visa...there is no legal need for them to be n the US for 6 more months unless it's to provide child care (not 'moral support' -- at least, not for 6 months!) Now, if you doubt this salient fact, then either: (a) apply for an extension and be sure to mention that babysitting is the reason for the request or... (b) return in Dec and tell our border folks that they are arriving to provide child care.... then see what happens....or....(as most people do) have your parent lie about their real reason for being in the US so long, etc...(".....I need six months to see the Statue of Liberty and the GRand Canyon..." In today's current administration, tolerance for visa abuse is very low...and if your parents do anything to jeopardize or lose their visa, they will not get another one for a long long long time...something to consider...

    why a 5 month stay? Is the baby due soon?

    well, how many children do YOU have and how old are they? Is the main purpose of the MIL's trip to provide child care so her daughter can return to work? Becaue if that is the case, then : (a) telling cBP that will mean she will be sent home or (b) lying about it will also mean she gets sent home, with a cancelled visa..... Child care is consider work and thus is NOT allowed by a B2 visa holder, under any and all circumstances....it does not matter if the child care is for a relative nor does it matter if said relative would be paid...(room and board is sufficient)...now, lots of people lie...but if caugfht in said lie, well, wave good bye to the visa.... :
  12. too quick of a turn around may cause the border folks to wonder in which country does the visa holder actually live (and work!)...it would be unwise to assume or believe that our border folks are naive.....especially in the current administration....if someone gets their visa revoked because CBP believed they were abusing the privilege, getting another one will be extremely difficult for a long long long time...so preserve that privilege and don't abuse it because once lost, it is near impossible to get it back. One main reason for this is the following:if CBP cancelled someone's visa, they also interview them and the results are sent to the embassy of the country that the former visa holder is from....as a CO, who would I believe...my colleagues from CBP or some visa applicant claiming how 'unfair' the revocation was.....easy choice.

    Visitor Visa for Parents

    your current (and apparent legal) status is not relevant to them. They will qualify based on their circumstances, not yours.

    Be sure to have a response when CBP asks about babysitting....
