I married US citizen last month..We are planning to file I-130 and I-485 together...We have a child born before marriage...She is 4 months old...Problem is, my child doesn't have my name, at fathers name in birth certificate and its empty.I was out of station when she born...But her last name is mine.I am now claiming her by filing Aknowledgement of Paternity and sending it to Vital statics but it looks its going to take time of 6 to 8 months....Can i tell IO officer in interview that we have child together?..Does DNA test proof helps?
All the things you mention will help. Amending her birth certificate if possible under Florida law (consult Florida family law attorney), take DNA test for all three and bring results to interview, file acknowledgement of paternity through Florida Family law courts and attorney. The most immediate and prompt solution is the DNA test, you can have results in 3-7 days and its 99% accurate. Consider hiring competent immigration counsel before you file, see my contact information below or choose other colleagues in this site.
The new company can apply for the H-1B anytime, no need to wait for April. And they can do the new PERM with the old priority date and the new I-140 at any time
