She could come on VWP for 90 days or apply for a b2. However, I highly suggest that she doesn't say anything about helping out with the baby. This can be perceived as work and taking work away from a us citizen. I've heard of grandparents getting grilled and occasionally refused for mentioning this.

The major qualification for a visitor visa is that the visitor can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the consular official that the visitor will return to their country at the end of the visa. This can include ongoing employment, property, etc., things/ties that show the visitor will go back home at the end of the visa.

It would have to be a visitor visa, the Dominican Republic is not a visa waiver country.

She applies on her own merits. She must understand that she has to prove beyond a doubt she must return.

Because the Dominican is a high fraud country she will have a very hard time getting a tourist visa if she can't prove ties that she will return back to the country. I've heard stories from my husband's friends and family and they've said you must have property, a job, bank accounts, etc. and even then it's very difficult to get approved.

All you can do is try!

I would suggest visiting a trusted immigration lawyer. They can analyze your mother-in-law's assets, ties to DR, her case in general, and give a better, more informed decision. Preparation is key.

She applies like everybody else,her situation is what it is.

She applies for a tourist visa on her own merit

nothing you or lawyer can do, she does the

application, convince the CO of ties to her country

with property/motor vehicle title good bank balance,

ties like a position she has with an organization,

job letter or if retired proof that she has to appear

in person to re-certify for her pension, responsible

for a dependent she cares for. High fraud country or

not you have to convince a CO you will go home.

Tell the truth , but DO NOT tell them you are going to

help with the baby, that's a definite denial

No you don't need a lawyer for a B-2 visa. The legal consultation will cost more then the $165 visa application.

CO's have 90 seconds to review a B-2 case and rely on profiling and questioning to make a decision. Young adults and single people are likely to be denied. Rarely do they ever want to see supporting documents. In you case it is important to note that your mother and law is not helping out and only coming to visit her pregnant daughter. Helping out is work which is not allowed on a B-2 visa. The point might sound silly but it is seen as work and american can be paid to do. Maid, in home care giver.

Apply for the B-2 and your mother and law will have an answer very shortly there after.
