Asked 4 months ago - Sioux Falls, SDFlag
I and my wife just arrived to the US as a new immigrants (green card), my son is a US citizen, I have a dependent unmarried under 21 years old daughter still living in Syria. She will turn 21 in about 6 months. What can I do to get her to the US to live with me and her mom as soon as possible before she turns 21?
Thanks for your helps

If you immigrated through your son, then your daughter is not a dependent beneficiary of the petition. You can sponsor her for a green card, but this will take many years. Have her consider other means of immigrating: employment, investment, lottery, etc.
