Bringing my little nephew on a visit to the US.

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to send for my husband little nephew who is just six years old for a visit to the States since their school is currently closed until next year. I don't know where to start because his mom is currently in the States illegally because her visiting visa expired sometime last year. The little boy was denied last year through the mom--the dad will submit financial documents on his son behalf but the boy's mom is currently residing in the States. My question here is that, am I going to catch difficulties because of the mom overstaying in the States when her visa is expired? What can I tell the immigration judge during his interview when the mom is not present? Can I still try to do it or quit because of the mom absence?

The boy's father could apply a tourist visa for the boy's behalf.

Seeing how the mom is overstaying in US, the CO may mostly denies the tourist visa, thinking that the boy is going to US to reunite with his mom and not returning home too.

All things considered I would guess you have less than 1% chance of getting him here. His mom is already here illegaly. If he comes the CO will be sure he will never go back to where he came. Sorry but that's my opinion. But of course you can always try. But YOU can;t really petition for him to come on a visitor visa. I imagine his father would have to do so. Waith this is your husbands nephew? I don't think you or your husband have any authority to have him come. Sorry. IMHO.

I could not imagine living a little child behind like that. Just my two cents.

i know of someone who received her tourist visa to go to the US although her mom was there illegally. Unfortunately, for her, she received her visa after when she turned 26, was established with a nice job and income, after having not seen her mom for more than 15 years. The child probably has to wait until he is 18.

Forgive my ignorance, but isn't there a question on the tourist visa application that asks about relatives in the US?

If yes, that question must be answered truthfully

good luck

I did not think 6 year old's had an interview.

Are you a legal guardian, on what basis are you applying?

Wonder where he lives, school closed until next year?

No Immigration Judge involved.
