Her biological mother must consent in writing her approval. She will probably have to present the approval in person. Nothing can move forward until then. This process I beleive needs to be done before she turns 16 I think.

I-130 and follow the instructions. Follow the basic plan to bring a spouse only you don't need a lot of the forms. As stated, by interview, unless you can prove sole custody, you'll need the mother's consent for the child to immigrate.

Yes you need court mandated papers showing you have sole custody and the mother has zero. Where is the child living now?
