    Hi,
    My mom who has a Green Card petitioned for a Green Card for
    me when I was 22 and now 11 years later, I have already had
    my biometrics done and had my interview. My sister is my
    sponsor since my mom is retired. I have brothers and sisters
    who are born citizens here also. My problem is the USCIS
    requested my mom go to the U.S. Consulate since she is
    currently out of the country to verify that she has not
    abandoned her status since she is the petitioner and I am
    the applicant. Now she has been out of the country for more
    than 1 1/2 years which is beyond what she is supposed to to
    maintain her status. There are extreme situations involved
    here because she is taking care of my dad (who is in pretty
    bad shape)-knees, back bowel stuff and Alzheimers)as his
    primary caregiver which is why she has not travelled back in
    a while.

    My question is how does this affect my status since I have
    until July 26th to have her verify her status and if so what
    can I do to rectify this situation. I already sent USCIS
    pictures of her with my dad to show why she was not there
    with me at my interview and the picture also showed the
    current date since she held up a newspaper with the date
    visible. I also sent to the USCIS along with the picture
    verification a letter from my dad's doctor specifying her
    role by his side. Please help. I have little time and after
    11 years of going back and forth and paying attorney fees
    and application fees and changing status etc. it is
    incredibly frustrating that such a thing could quash my
    hopes for the Green card at so close and critical a stage.
