citizen mother and LPR fatherabroad.Mother wants to bring newly born abroad child to the U.S.
i've read many articles about it but i still don't know the answer.
The citizen mother has been in the U.S. for 5 years (form green card to naturalization) but physically (bodily) she was present just for 3 years before that the child was born.
while she was working in the U.S.she filed for husband immigration and he got his GC before child's birth. husband didn't come to the U.S. so she left the country and stayed in the country of her husband. Now they have a baby and she intends to return to the U.S.
Seemingly, she can't apply for her child citizenship because she can not show evidence of 5-year physical (bodily) residency
in the U.S. (and has not U.S. citizen grand parents either) before child's birth.
How to return to the U.S. to work and live with the baby?
Child is less than 2-year old, but it seems that only LPR mother can bring her child of less than 2-year old back to U.S. without filing any immigration petition.
Can she take the plane with her baby before child's two year old like a LPR mother?
Any other solution? the immigration petition for one-year old child takes time and needs a sponsor in the U.S.which is complicate.
Thanks for your insights
