Recommended Posts

hi guys,

 

A friend needs our help on what to do and he is the petitioner (USC) . The beneficiary who is his wife( got married last month) is now pregnant in Ghana and he is yet to file for CR1 for her.

 

the question now is that   DOES HE GO AHEAD AND FILE FOR CR1 WHILES THE BENEFICIARY IS CURRENTLY PREGNANT OR WAIT AND FILE AFTER BIRTH ? AND ALSO IS THERE ANYWAY

                                         THE PETITION CAN BE EXPEDITE SO SHE CAN COME GIVE BIRTH IN USA?

 

 

tnx all !! :D

He can file for CR-1 and CRBA for the baby as he is the father later.... or he can wait until the baby is born and then file for both, whichever he prefers.

 

As to expedite, no, there is no expedite for pregnancy (unless there is some life threatening complication perhaps but even then no guarantees).

Concur with @Ben&Zian to file now and file CRBA for child when it is born.

 

The is no expedite for pregnancy. And with the current timelines for CR1 it is likely she will have the child in Ghana. Fortunately, he can file CRBA for the child and it will gain citizenship.

File the CR1 asap.

it's been 4 years since I filed the petition for my husband. I got pregnant in 2013. We have a 3 year old son. The US don't give a damn about your child.  We were told to do a DNA test. Today our DNA test result came back a match. Hopefully my husband gets his visa soon. Be prepared to do a DNA test. Cost $660.

Assuming, of course, that the father is able to pass citizenship to the child. He has to have lived in the USA for a certain amount of time. If he only recently became a citizen himself he would not be able to pass on citizenship to his child.
