  2. No. Only US citizens can petition married children.

    J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.


  3. Unfortunately, No. Only citizens can petition for married children. Also, currently it will take more than 10 years from the time a U.S. citizen files for a married son/daughter for that son/daughter to get a permanent resident visa.
