F4 Visa-Sister, husband, and child?


7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This question is not for me. I am asking for another person.

She (USC) wants to bring her sister to the US but her sister has a husband and a young daughter. I am aware she can apply for F4 for her sister but how would the daughter and spouse come with her? I know there are no visas for niece and brother-in-law and I know the sister can be petitioned, come to the US, become a citizen herself and petition for her spouse and child- but, I have seen families that come over altogether which has always confused me as to what visa they applied for.

What visa would allow the sister to be petitioned for and possibly have a "derivative" visa for the sister's husband and daughter?

But dear friend no problem the cspa will apply for them.it will be cover in cspa. mean child status protection act.

How do you know?

CSPA freezes a child's age in the family preference categories when the PD becomes current. It doesn't freeze when the I-130 is filed.

So how do you know the child will be covered by CSPA in the future when the child's age has not frozen yet? You can't.

Do not tell the OP that CSPA will cover the child unless you can see the future.

CSPA may cover the child, and that can only be determined AFTER the PD becomes current.
