Since my daughter is now 25 does that mean she will not be accompanying me to the USA?

Asked over 1 year ago - Saint Ann, MO

I currently live in Jamaica and i am in my late 40's. My mother has been filing for me since 2005 (F2B - unmarried sons and daughters). At the time my daughter was 18 and she was also placed on the filing. Now she is 25 years old.

    Answered . As Mr. Shusterman indicated, she still may qualify however it's a bit complex to calculate whether she does and I recommend that you consult with an experienced Immigration attorney to determine if she still can immigrate with you.
