Proof of relationship for Green Card for Mother

Recommended Posts


I am US citizen planning to sponsor my Mom (72 year old) for GC. My birth certificate shows my Dad's name (Deceased) only as it is customary in India. I have a India Government issued OCI/PIO card which shows both my parents names. Also, my old India passports (3) and my Moms passports (three of them) show my Dad's name. I have filed I-864 several times in past 20 years for my Mom during her travels to US. 

Would a letter (along with I-130) with all document scans and explanation be enough to prove relationship? Please advise.

Thank you Pontevecchio! I called an approved DNA test site and was told by a kind person to wait till RFE / Case # comes through before taking the DNA test and submit all the proof I have first, as you suggested. 

Thanks again for providing advise to so many folks on this forum!
