The process is taking too much time ,is it advisable that i should apply for her student visa.Will the student visa complicate the pending application of immigration(I 130).I hope they do not deny.
The US consulate, realizing that your daughter has an immigrant petition pending will most likely deny her application for a temporary nonimmigrant (student) visa, based on INA Section 214(b)'s immigrant intent presumption.
The mere fact that your daughter has an immigrant visa petition pending is the proof of her intent to immigrate and remain permanently in the US. Thus, an application for a temporary visa at this time will be viewed as an attempt to "circumvent" existing immigration laws by attempting to find a "short cut" to the immigrant visa's waiting period.
Depending on how you got your permanent residency there may be another way of expediting your daughter's immigration to the U.S. If you got your permanent residency because your U.S. citizen spouse or adult child petitioned for you, or through the diversity visa lottery, then your daughter will probably just have to wait for her place in line to be reached. But if you received permanent residency through the petition of another relative, or through employment, then there may be a way to expedite her immigration. Please add a comment to this message if this is the case and I will be happy to explain the details.
