Bringing the kids to usa

I have a question, once my husband gets here to the usa, should he wait for his citizenship to send for his children or should he send for them after he gets his 10 year green card? Which is the cheapest in the long run and the fastest?

You'll have 2 options:

If hubby as LPR petiion them it could take 3 to 4 years

If you as the USc step-mother petition them it could take 9 to 12 months.

The process is the same the only diferrence is whom sign the petition will start the process time.

Follow the guides that are posted under the guide tab above.

children are under 20 years old not married

How about some ages????

It makes a difference if the children were 18 or not when you got marry.

Please give us the relevant information without having to keep asking questions. If people have to keep digging for basic information that you should provide, then it will either take many posts and a long time for you to get the answers or people will get bored with your thread and ignore your question.

So, actual ages when you got married and actual age now. We need this information to give you a good answer.

aaron, maybe I did a little reading/researching before posting, if you had maybe you wouldn't be such a snark this morning.

This is a statement from a previou pos of hers. And GOOD MORNING to you TOO,

"I was thinking the same thing that it will take longer for the kids to get here as a permanent resident verse a usa citizen. My only concern is his oldest daughter is now 17 years old. In 3 years she will be 20 years old and I don't know if it will take a long process to apply for citizenship like cr1 did( a year process".

Becuase they were under 18 when you married they are your stepkids and you can file as a USC which is the fastest path. The bio mom has to release them and they may want DNA testing for the father if Lagos is in their moody time of month when they get the petition.


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