Hello there! I'm new here. I would like to ask if someone has tried to file a petition for unmarried children over 21 while staying here in United States. How's the process going on? Please let me know.

Yes you can petition for the child over 21 but will not be able to adjust status to lpr. from my understanding.

As an LPR, you can file a petition for your unamrried child over 21 at any time - it doesn't matter if she is inside or outside the US. However, your child cannot stay in the US. Your child will have to go home and wait.

It takes 5-6 years for an LPR to petition for an unmarried child over 21. It would not be fair for the child who arrives in the US on a visitor visa and is able to adjust to jump ahead of other people's children who are outside the US.

LPR can file petition only after 5-6 years of being LPR? That's what you mean, right? How long does it take for a child to wait?

The wait for the child is 5-6 years. Your children have to wait in their home country. If they have a visitors visas they can use it but not overstay.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

That's what I mean. It's a wait of 5-6 years after filing the petition for a visa. It's not 5-6 years of being an LPR to file.
