Her brother was citizen and living with his family and my mother in law.when we got married my step son was already admitted in nearby PS school where my in laws living because he was attached with my mother in law and family.After marriage my wife shifted w ith me and they both got conditional green card. we never disturb my stepson studies,usually we went on weekend to see all my in laws family and we stayed with them on weekend.My wife got a job ,first she joined 5 days a week then last year my mother in law got sick and received home aid service from medicaid,During that time my wife brother got job in other state, He left new York with his family but mother in law is still living in same apartment.4 days her other relative living with my mother in law and 3 days we stayed with her. we never change our address.Now according to the situation and physical address, stepson is not living with us.Now what should i do?in i 751 part 5 item # 4 (is this child living with you) what should i give answer?Please help.if we say he is not living with us situation will be difficult for us.

The child is not living with you, so answer honestly.

If it does come up, you can easily explain why the child doesn't live with you.  It doesn't make you "look bad", if that's your fear--- parents do what is best for their children at the time, for financial/emotional well-being/what-have-you the child lives elsewhere temporarily.   Any IO (if it does come up or you have to attend an interview---many ROC applicants do not have an interview) would be more interested in whether the parent is providing financial support for the child while living elsewhere...not so much focused on the ins and outs of why the child is elsewhere right now.

The child is a GC holder got GC because mom got one so I don’t totally agree. Why should child come here to live with mom and get GC to live some place else. From the eyes of CO it doesn’t look totally fine.

I'm assuming the child is living elsewhere temporarily.  The requirement (unless a divorce waiver issue) is that the couple (in this case the parents) must live in marital union. Even then---living in marital union doesn't mean physically living in the same home, either, for ROC purposes.  I don't believe there's a requirement that the child must live with the beneficiary parent throughout the entire process for their own ROC.  .

 

It's not the ideal situation, but it doesn't face an automatic denial either.

Its been over two years. I would think that would be questionable.

Absolutely it may be brought into question.  As I said above, OP can explain why the child is living elsewhere if it does come up (either through RFE or during an interview if there is one)...couples do live apart for whatever reasons (financially, work, etc) and survive the ROC process.  Military couples may live separately for quite a while.  Some people lose their children temporarily (court-ordered) and the child is able to ROC while living elsewhere.  Not  the same situation, naturally, but shows there is some wiggle room in the adjudication/eligibility....OP does say they visit the child quite frequently (every week it sounds like for a few days at a time, from the original post, unless I misunderstood) so it's not like he was shipped off somewhere for 2 years and forgotten about.

 

If need be, I suppose they could also include some sort of affidavit/statement to strengthen their case and/or explain the living arrangements, mentioning any financial support given to the child, visits, what-have-you.

I agree that they definitely need to include that and maybe show they still have him covered on medical and all that.
