Dear Vj Members,

I have a question..Please help me

Me and my spouse has filed to I-130 and it has gone through all the process and i got my visa. However during the processing time we are blessed with a baby and unfortunately we forgot to update that in our process, and now i am in US and my wife is in India along with the baby. She statyed back because she wants to complete her education.

Now she has completed her education and wants to comeback out baby couldn't get the US passport because my wife didn't stay in US for more than a 1 year after she completed 14 yrs.

Can anyone please advice would be better if we can get a tourist visa for our child and then apply for a status adjustment so that it could be quick or do we have to file I-130 along with G-325A form and how much would be the wait time for a baby.

Could anyone please throw some light on this?

Thank you,

M.F

I belive one has to be a United States citizen and if I am reading his OP he's here through her and she never received a US passport :huh2:

Anyway had she been a citizen the child would be a citizen and she could just file for a passport....

But I could be wrong....

If she's a USC she needs to contact the consulate apply for CRBA that's what I did with my child she was born in DR I'm American by birth...

Not every USC can get a CRBA for their child. OP said in their first post that the USC parent in this case does NOT fulfill the physical presence requirements.

The mother is a USC but cannot pass citizenship to the child automatically because she has not spent enough time in the USA.

To confirm, the baby was born in wedlock, and if you take all the (not necessarily continuous) periods of time your wife (the USC) was physically present in the US any time in her life after she turned 14 and before the birth of the baby, and sum them all up, it's less than 2 years?

OP contact the Embassy and ask them if they would put a "baby transportation letter" known as "NA-3 (BABY)" in the baby's foreign passport.

This is not possible in this case. It only applies to a child born to a legal permanent resident on a temporary visit outside the US. I believe the mother in this case is the US citizen. They will have to apply for an immigrant visa for the child. The good news is that a) India offers DCF in New Delhi, which will make the process faster, and b) the baby will be a US citizen once admitted to the US on the immigrant visa.

Thank you very much for all your replies.

Uhm. for a child?

I-130, copy of marriage certificate, copy of birth certificate of child and that's it. No passport copies etc...

At the NVC stage you will have the mostly same things as the mom has, DS-261, DS-260, I-864w (because the child will be a USC when they arrive in the USA.) bio data page of passport, copy of birth certificate. That's it.
