LPR wants to bring his child to US

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am helping a friend with some research as he want to bring his son to US. 


  1. My friend is a male married to USC, he just got his 10 year green card. They have a child together and his wife has one child from previous relationship.
  2. LPR has a child in his native country (Guatemala). His son is 16 years old. Born in wedlock and parents divorced. 

I understand that stepmother (USC) needs to file I-130. Mother of the beneficiary will sign paperwork to allow him to move to US. Is there a specific form used for that purpose or letter? Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

A divorce/family lawyer would be the best person to get the necessary legal documents in place for the child since it is a custody matter.  A simple letter written by the parent won't work.
