Petition step-daughter after submitting I-130 for spouse

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have filed an I-130 for my spouse and we are waiting on NVC to complete the case and for our interview. We have decided it is time to petition to bring his daughter also. He is currently living with her abroad as we wait for his visa petition to be completed. My question is whether I need to start a completely new process for the child: I-130 petition/$420 fee, Biographical data, NVC AOS bill, DS-230, etc or something else. She is written in on his application as his daughter and my step daughter but we said she would not be joining him to the US until later. Also, if I need to file the I-130 and biographical data for her, who signs the biographical data? Normally it is the beneficiary so does she sign? She is nine years old. Thanks for your help.
