I have a friend who needs help, she file  i130 for her mother  who is approved now the problem is that her mom is in the USA and enter illegally , she wants to know if she can file 601A for her mother before her mom gets the interview. if not can her grandmother file for her mother even though she is the petitioner on the i130.

A child isn't a qualifying relative for either an I-601 or an I-601A when filing to overcome illegal presence. 

 

How long has the mother been illegally present in the US? Is this the only time she EWI'd and remained?

What about the grandmother (presumably the mother's mother)?

I wonder if she's a USC or LPR living in the US?

OP did mention her.

yes the mother's mother is a LPR living in US  thats the reason i ask if she can file while the daughter  has the i130 or does the mother need to file a new i130 petition

AFAIK the petitioner on the I-130 and the qualifying relative for the I-601A does NOT have to be the same person.

Yes. Wouldn't the LRR mother of the applicant work as a QR?

QR is qualify relative? and if so does my friend grandmother be a QR since she is the mother of her mom?

The LPR grandmother could be a qualifying relative for the I-601/A, but then you have to demonstrate why it would be a hardship to the grandmother if the mother wasn't granted an immigrant visa. 

 

This isn't really a DIY case; competent guidance from an experienced immigration attorney would likely help here. 

 

As stated above, I don't think the qualifying relative needs to be the I-130 petitioner.
