Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 91 / Thursday, May 13, 2021 / Notices Program Modernization. See 84 FR 35750 (Jul. 24, 2019). In response to a public comment regarding derivative filing, DHS responded that it ‘‘proposed to standardize the process for those derivatives who file an individual Form I–829 petition and cannot be included on the principal’s Form I–829, generally because the principal fails or refuses to file a Form I–829. Under these circumstances, the final rule clarifies the current DHS practice of requiring all derivatives connected to a single principal investor to file separately . . . This final rule only allows derivatives to apply together on a single Form I–829 petition when the principal is deceased, because INA 204(l) directs DHS to adjudicate ‘notwithstanding the death of the qualifying relative.’ . . .This rule does not change the current DHS practice, and DHS is simply clarifying language in 8 CFR 216.6(a)(1) to avoid a situation where derivatives filing separately do so incorrectly, causing their petition to be rejected.’’ 84 FR at 35782. Reasons for Change DHS is clarifying language from the preamble of both the NPRM and the Final Rule with this form revision regarding who may file the form. When DHS stated that a derivative may file a Form I–829 petition if the principal immigrant investor ‘‘fails or refuses to file a Form I–829,’’ DHS was referring to the principal’s failure or refusal to file a Form I–829 for the derivative(s). The current DHS practice is for derivatives not included on the principal’s Form I–829 to file a separate Form I–829. Therefore, DHS intended the comment response in the Final Rule to be read as: DHS proposed to standardize the process for those derivatives who file an individual Form I–829 petition and cannot be included on the principal’s Form I–829, generally because the principal fails or refuses to file a Form I–829 for the derivative(s). DHS understands that the failure to include ‘‘for the derivative(s)’’ may have caused confusion concerning whether the derivative of a principal immigrant investor can petition for and obtain the removal of conditions if the principal immigrant investor has not petitioned to remove his or her conditions. Through its regulation, DHS only intended to clarify existing practice for derivatives seeking to remove conditions on permanent residence. Currently, if the principal immigrant is unable to remove his or her conditions, the derivative immigrant is generally unable to remove his or her conditions, except where the principal has died, as statutorily required by INA 204(l). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:52 May 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 This is consistent with the terms ‘alien spouse’ and ‘alien child’ as defined by INA 216A(f)(2). It is also consistent with 8 CFR 216.6(a)(1)(ii), and how derivative status is similarly interpreted across immigration benefits: That a derivative generally does not have status without the principal.
