I am a green card holder and i want to petition my 3 years son is it inevitable to appear before a judge or its just paper procedures ?
As long as your son is not in immigration proceedings, you will not need to appear before an immigration judge. it's not clear from your answer where your son is. Typically the process for apply for a child will be the filing of an I-130 followed by an interview at the embassy (if your son is in a foreign country or is here without status) or you may be able to file an I-130 and then apply for adjustment of status (if your son is here legally). You should contact an immigration lawyer to take care of this for you.
