No, it is not necessary for your husband to arrive with you at the POE. That is nice for both of you and optional -- but not necessary. Maybe she was confused with immigration allowing the US citizen to be with the immigrant when clearing immigration when traveling together.

No it is not required. You and your son need the proper documentation in order to travel--i.e. passport, visa, ETC. Having the USC travel along does nothing. If you or your son are missing any of the documents, you will be denied entry. The only thing I can think of is this person was talking about your son's father giving permission to leave the PI.

As with all international travel, it is up to each individual to be able to be admitted to the desired destination country and that goes for USC visitng foreign countries. I do not know of any situation where a person in the destination countrycan help get someone past the rules and regulations. Maybe the person thought it would be easier if the USC husband was along to help with getting thru the airports and all that, but you can travel to the US by yourself or with your son in tow.

Good luck,

Dave

I read somewhere that the petitioner either has to be present in the US at the time of entry, or accompany the beneficiary and enter together. As long as those conditions are met, you should be fine.
