What steps do we need to take to start this process ?
Hello Sir. I will try to help you. First, please note that not all types of family members can be petitioned for. The US immigration law has certain family-based categories and you may only petition for those family members that fall within those categories. Your wife may petition for her son. If he is under the age of 21, then he will be regarded as an immediate relative and not subject to a priority date. If 21 or above, then he will have to wait for his priority date to become current before he can immigrate to the U.S. Second, as for the process, it is a multi-step process. It starts with a family petition being filed by your wife along with much supporting documentation. Once the petition is approved, then the USCIS forwards the petition to the National Visa Center, which conducts its document and fee collection. You must submit the requested evidence and documents. Once this is done, then the case is forwarded to the Embassy for a visa interview. I handle all of the steps for my clients and prepare them for the interview. I hope this information helps.
Your wife may file a petition for her son and if he is married his spouse and derivative family members under the age of 21 may also be eligible. Schedule a consultation with an immigration attorney to review eligibility.
