    Generally, the saying goes: "The I-130 petition dies with the Petitioner." This means that when the Petitioner dies, the Beneficiary is no longer eligible to use that visa petition to potentially become a permanent resident of the United States. However, if the visa petition has been approved and the Beneficiary is merely waiting for a visa number to become available so s/he can adjust their status to permanent resident, the Beneficiary may be able to use the approved visa petition despite the fact the Petitioner is deceased
