You don't need your wife to petition for your daughter because you can also petition for her.

Either of you can petition for your daughter but personally, I would rather do it myself than have my spouse do it.

Good luck :)

Extremely bad advice.

There are no limits on visas when the USC spouse files for the stepdaughter.

If the LPR parent files for his daughter, there would be a 2 years wait for a visa.

Would you add 2 years to the wait for your child?

Is you filing yourself versus your spouse worth being separated for 2 additional years when the child is 8 years old?

It is not "Extremely bad advice", exaggeration much!

OP asked if the "his wife can file for his daughter?"

Did you not read that?

OP or wife can file for his daughter.

That's the answer.

Now, his wife filing per your answer, might be the easiest route but my that doesn't make my advice "extremely bad"!

Ok, it's not bad advice to tell the OP that it's better for him to file and add 2 years to him being separated from his 8 years old daughter.

Happy?

By the way, you didn't answer if you would add 2 years to waiting for your 8 years old daughter. Would you do that? Would that be good advice?

Did you read my answer?? Where in my answer did i say it is "better"?

I told him he can file for his daughter and his wife can also file.

I didn't tell him it is "better". ughh..

Did OP ask for the "better" or best option?

DO you even know why OP asked that question?

have you gone through Ghana Embassy before? Would you answer for him why he is eligible to file for his daughter but his wife filed instead? Did you stop to think that since he said he is a greencard holder, he may not be aware he can file for his daughter?

I gave him the option of either doing it himself or his wife can do it.

Bye Felicia!

So, you are okay with being separated from your 8 years old daughter for two additional years rather then having your USC spouse file?

OP asked if his wife could file. No where did he ask for other options. You assume he didn't know he could file because, wow, YOU gave him the OPTION and now he knows. You gave him the option without considering the consequences.

Why are you so scare to answer if you would add 2 years of separation from your 8 years old daughter because the LPR should file rather than the spouse?
