    Answered . If your mother-in-law is planning to visit you guys, it should be a visitor's visa; if she needs an urgent medical treatment and she cannot get it in Mexico, it's a different reason for visit. Decide what exactly she is coming for, and apply for it! Use an attorney to guide you and help with the process.

    Answered . I agree with attorney Shoutsova. Once you decide upon the purpose of her visit, proceed accordingly.

    Thank you for your question.
