Hello, I am new here, my friend is really shy to ask but I was wondering if anyone can give me some insight on this issue he is having. Many ppl have told me different things.. I figured since this forum is dedicated to these kind of issues.. someone could chime in.. .thank you in advance.

1)My friend married a woman in China.. the wife has a child that he wants to bring over. The million dollar question is does the "father of the child" have to sign some kind of "release form for the child ( 14 yo)? This is in preparation for the CR1 filing.

If they have divorced legally, she will know who has the sole/joint legal and physical custody of the child. If she has the sole legal and physical custody, that agreement suffice. Otherwise, she should obtain the "authorization letter" from her ex-husband to take the child with her to anywhere in the world. This has to be executed legally by the court or any other legal system in your country. This is just my opinion.

Somebody from China or experienced this situation will give more detailed info here.

Having a release in hand, on interview day, trumps a lot of silliness at the Guangzhou IV Unit. I don't know how HongKong operates for CR-2 visas, at all.

It (this release) will have to be notarized, and then translated - can get it done at the same place the marriage certificate / birth certificate is translated. IMO, if the father is a b@stard about this, he'll want to be paid for his signature, so be fore-warned. Many things in China require money, this is one of them (or at least potentially one of them).

Not having the release in hand?

The divorce document has a statement about 'FOSTER' in it - who is responsible for which percentage of FOSTER.

IF the mother is pegged at 100 percent FOSTER in the divorce decree, then this, in effect, gives the mother

sole custody of the child.

This may or may not be enough on interview day. It should be clear, in the divorce decree, though.

Other things to consider (since GUZ IV is a PITA) -

--photo book, presented on interview day, of the mother and child spanning the years, from birth to yesterday.

--evolution of relationship letter from the US Citizen.

That's about all I can think of, for this particular item - tell yer friend to read this, as well -> http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/234971-red-flag-list-for-visa-denial/page__hl__appointment

Good Luck ! Post back if you have further questions.

Either the divorce decree or a separate court order of sole custody from the Gong Zheng Chu (notarial office) will suffice. If neither, then a letter from the father giving permission for US immigration will be needed. The letter should also be taken to the Gong Zheng Chu for translation and certification.
