A US citizen mom didn't mention child's name on the immigration papers

Recommended Posts

This is about my close friend's case.... She's a US citizen now but she didn't mention child's name on the immigration  papers because she doesn't know that she's alive. When she gave birth to her eldest daughter. Her mother told her that her baby died because the mother can't accept that her daughter was a single mom. She gave the baby to the couple who can't have kids.  But the mother (the grand mother of the baby) is already old and sickly now, she finally told her daughter that her baby is alive and she gave it away. When my friend look for her daughter she found out that her parents listed on her birth certificates are already dead. They both undergo for a DNA Test to confirm that she's really the biological mother, the result is 99.9%... So they are going to legal process now that she's her daughter. Her question, can she petition her daughter in the US after everything will be put in place?

Such a tragic story.

 

The good news is that she will be able to petition for her once mother daughter relationship is established. Likely through DNA. 

 

The bad news, assuming the daughter is over 21, is that it is going to take 7 to 10 years before the daughter will be granted a visa.

Can you clarify this sentence - do you mean that the couple that got the baby were listed as parents on the birth certificate? Did they legally adopt the child?
