I just want to bring my sister to the USA but she has different last name with me. We re the same father not mother. My sister's mother did not put my dady's last name on her birth certificate. What do i do before I am filling the I130. Also, Im USC but my father only has GREEN card. Who can bring my sister here quick. Thank you and good luck to all.

You need solid evidence your sister is your sister, birth cert proving that she is your sister will be needed.

Note Siblings take F4 visa priority, it will be a very long time before an immigrant visa number comes up.

DOS is working on sibling petitions filed JUL 97 and before. http://travel.state.gov/visa/frvi/bulletin...letin_3953.html

birth certificat do not have my father name

Does it have one common parent's name? Oh, I see the father is the common parent and his name is not on the certificate. You'll have to find some other kind of verification but I have no clue what that might be. Do you?

How old is your sister?

How soon will your father be a US Citizen?

I have almost the same case as your sister's case. My brother is US citizen. We have both same mother and father. My father was Green Card holder when he applied visa for us. My brother also applied for us at the same time. This process started on 1990. It ends up that my father became US citizen and our status converted to "sons to US citizen - F1 visa(?)". We came to USA with my father's visa application.

Long after we have come to US, my brother's application became actual, and we did get a notification from former INS, stated that our brother's visa application was ready. The visas were now ready for us.

In my opinion, your father's visa application is the fastest way to get your sister over here, if he can become an US citizen. I think he can start applying now even he only is a Green Card holder.

I hope my info has been a little help.

Good luck with your process.

From form I-130:

Who May File Form I-130?

2. If you are a lawful permanent resident of United States, you may file this form for:

A. Your husband or wife;

B. Your unmarried child under age 21;

C. Your unmarried son or daughter age 21 or older.

http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-130instr.pdf

So, yes father can file for daughter if she is unmarried.

This is F2B which is not much faster than F4 priority. If and when father becomes a citizen, he can get the petition upgraded to F1 priority which is 6 years waiting for visas.

Any path taken for a 44 year old family member will be a long one but this case has the added problem of no birth certificate showing a daughter or sister relationship to the father or sister in the US. A solution must be found for that before wasting time and money filing a petition.

I agree with Pushbrk. Its going to be hard.........both you and your half-sister share a father who is not on either one of your birth certificates.........I m thinking paternity test first OR DNA to link you and your sister. Before you waste any money filing for your sister, sort out the birth certificates first. The only way I would think how would be to go to your Bureau of Statistics/Office of Registrar of Births and Deaths or whatever they call them there and find a way to properly assign both parents of you and your half-sister on your individual birth certificates. If they have paternity tests there, this may give validation.
