  1. 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.

  2. Whichever you choose be prepared to document. A visitor visa will require strong evidence of ties to the home country that she doesn't intend to abandon, eg, home, job, family, retirement benefits, etc. you'll benefit from having a lawyer analyze the particulars to improve her chances.

  3. I agree with attorney Shoutsova. Once you decide upon the purpose of her visit, proceed accordingly. Visas for medical purposes have vastly different requirements associated with them than tourist visas do. You would be well-advised to have a consultation with an experienced immigration lawyer.
