Petitioning my wife while she is pregnant

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was wondering, last november i visited my wife in the philippines, and during that trip i managed to get her pregnant. Now i am back in the states and im going to petition her. my question is, if she gives birth while still waiting for her petition do I have to make a new petition for my baby? This whole process is new to me. i'm a us citizen living in las vegas. Will they look for dna testing to prove that is my baby???

Welcome to VJ - congrats on the new marriage and baby

You'll follow the guides for the CR-1

Assuming you meeting the residency requirements, you can file a CRBA when the baby is born and get the baby US citizenship - therefore not requiring a visa.

Also note, if the baby is born before the visa is issued, you may have to increase your household size +1 for the affidavid of support

good luck

The baby is a US citizen. If the child is born she will need to apply for CRBA (consular report of birth abroad) to get his/her US passport. She can give birth in the US no problem. No extra visa needed.. just if she gives birth in the US remember she needs the CRBA. It's illegal for the child to come on a visitor visa or anything other that a US passport.

Because you're married it's less likely they'll want DNA proof the kid is yours, in fact I think I remember reading they won't ask. My personal belief is everyone should get DNA tests on their kids but that's up to you. My husband and I have already discussed it. We know neither of us would cheat but his family are a**holes who would try and convince people the kids aren't his and it's just easier to get it out of the way now while we're both alive (god forbid anything happens) but proving paternity once he's passed.. anyway I digress.

Good luck!
