Bringing my stepdaughters to the US
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:36:42 pm »
My husband came to the US almost 3 years ago but we did not petition his 2 daughters. We have been married for 8 years now and the girls are 12 and 8. We want to petition them now and once they are here immediately get their citizenship before they turn 18.

Does anybody know the processing time? When will they be here? Any experience in the process?

Thank you!

If a US Citizen parent or step parent petitions for them, it will take about a year.

That’s what we were thinking that instead of waiting a year or so for my husband to become a citizen and then petition them and wait another year. We might as well do it now and wait about a year overall.
Do you know if we need to file separate I-130 since the kids have different moms?

Thank you!!!

The processing times are about the same as before. It will take about a year! As I said, Either of you can file for them.
