Sponsoring foreign national brother in law


#1

I posted this question back in December, hoping I’ll get more replies this time around.

Back in 2014 I was asked by my sister to help her co-sponsor her husband to be able to get a permanent residence. He is of Mexican nationality, and has had his residence for about 3 years now. He also has the intention of applying to become a citizen as soon as he is eligible. Does anyone know if this could affect my top secret clearance.

It could slow it down. But at least you have a genuine relationship with this person. Sometimes people get into sponsoring people through more, shall we say, indirect contacts and that poses a much more serious problem.

If this person is already LPR and on the path to citizenship it should not be problem but probably will draw some extra scrutiny which means more time.

Concur Squirrel. I have several foreign national friends. If it is explainable, it is understandable. This sounds completely legit and understandable. It is a global society now.
