Twins coming, need mother in law

32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am sure people have asked this question over and over but I am needing to ask this again if someone could guild me. My wife and I are expecting twins and her mother in the Philippines has agreed to help us so we want to apply for a visitor's visa then we will apply for a permanent visa later since my wife is not a citizen yet. What visa do we apply for her to visit us here for a while?

No Visa that you or your wife can apply for her.

She can apply for a tourist Visa on her own.

Oh really?

Or does anyone here have a clue of how long it takes for a person with a permanent resident (green card) to apply for a parent?

hi

only USC can apply for parents

son until your wife becomes a USC she cannot file for her mother

she has to apply on her own and show that she has no immigration intent for a tourist visa

Really. Your Mother in Law applies on her own for the tourist visa. She has to be able to show strong ties to her own country, reasons that she must return home. Your wife cannot apply for her Mother until she is a USC.

Congratulations on your twins :)


I can explain it to you. But I can't understand it for you.

What do mean by help? Financially?

It would be a big no-no for your mother-in-law to come as a tourist and then to help look after the new babies. This is seen as work that could be done for pay by a citizen and, as such, is illegal for her to perform. If she were to arrive at the POE and say this is what she's doing, she would quite possibly be denied entry.

No I mean help to her daughter while she is pregnant care for the new babies since we both work full time jobs.

Well we do intend for her to migrate here later when my wife does become a USC but I was under the understanding that you can still apply for a parent or even a sibling while just a permanent resident it just would take a lot longer. I was looking for a time frame for that process. I am not looking to do anything against the law.

That would be a no no.

How long is it before your wife can naturalise?

No such process.

I have twin daughters and yes they can be a handful when they are young. My then wife worked and I worked but at some time we had to look at our priorities and make sacrifices to ensure they were brought up and cared for properly. Not easy work, but it had to be done. Besides, when you choose to have children it's necessary for a couple to be ready both emotionally and financially. Just my 2 cents.

Here's the info from the horse's mouth, so-to-speak:

http://www.uscis.gov/family/family-us-citizens/parents/bringing-parents-live-united-states-permanent-residents

"Bringing Parents to Live in the United States as Permanent Residents"

"To petition for your parents (mother or father) to live in the United States as green card holders, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 21 years old. Green card holders (permanent residents) may not petition to bring parents to live permanently in the United States."
