NOTICE: CNMI WIDOWS AND WIDOWERS OF DECEASED US CITIZENS

October 25, 2011

Reminder From USCIS:


WIDOWS / WIDOWERS OF DECEASED U.S. CITIZENS
Qualifying Widow(ers) Must Apply for Status by October 28, 2011 if Spouse Died Before October 28, 2009

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) again reminds eligible widow(er)s of U.S. citizens that October 28, 2011 (mainland time) is the deadline for filing a Form I-360 visa petition if your spouse died before October 28, 2009.

USCIS must receive your Form I-360 for Special immigrant classification as a widow/widower 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 (mainland time.)

Among other things, you must establish that
• You were the citizen’s legal spouse.
• You have not remarried.
• You are admissible as an immigrant.

More details on filing as a I-360 Widow(er) —including application requirements, fees and procedures—are available at www.uscis.gov/I-360. For additional information, applicants may also contact USCIS at 1-800-375-5283.

A widow(er) whose citizen spouse died on or after Oct. 28, 2009 will have two years from the date of the U.S. citizen spouse’s death to file their Form I-360.
