As a green card holder, can I file I130 for my mother?

Los Angeles, CA |
Filed under: Immigration Green cards

I am wondering if it is possible for me, an LPR, to file I130 for my mother because I did not see it under any category. I am itching to bring my mother here. If it's not possible, can I invite her for a visit?

There is no category for that, but you can invite her for a visit.

A US green card holder can only sponsor his/her spouse and unmarried children.
