yes you can start filing a petition to them, don't you ever wait your citizenship because it will take many years to approve by the NVC (charge to experience)

I think I have answered your question already on another sub forum. but let me explain it again. no need for your husband to adopt your children for as long as marriage was created before their 18th bday. they will fall under IR2 category -children of USC.


destiny belongs to those who believe in their dreams and have the courage to really pursue it!

dont stop when you're tired, stop when you are done!

My mother was married to my step dad who is a US citizen but my mom wasn't. My step father petitioned us for I-130 and got here sooner because at that time we are under 18 years of age. My brother and I got here in about 4 months after that due to many corrections on my birth certificates which was had 3 different last name that was spelled wrong. One with middle name missing, one spelled wrong, and one was used my maiden name instead of my last name.

Okay to make the story short.....YESSSSSSSSSS he can file for your kids without even adopting the childs, if he adopted the childs then he can legally changed their last name to his , so forth and so on.
