Hope all is well!
My friend is 33 years old, unmarried, living in Canada and would like to join their family who live in Nevada, USA.
Their mother is a US citizen who will be the petitioner. Before the process starts, a lot of questions came up, so I offered to help and ask them here:
- Once their mother sends in the petition, can the adult child still travel back and forth between the US and Canada for family visits while they wait on the decision?
- Should my friend be in Canada once a decision is made on their mother's petition? Or could it be okay to continue filing in the US via the Canadian embassy? (I'm assuming it's best to do it in Canada but they were wondering so I'm passing the Q along)
- What is the current timeline from start to completion? I heard it can take years before a decision is even made on the initial petition from the parent.
- Any tips or shared experiences are welcome!
Thanks so much!
All my best
