Can your mother in law petition you for a green card instead your husband?
No. Only your U.S. Citizen or LPR Spouse, or U.S. Citizen child over 21, U.S. Citizen Sibling and U.S. Citizen Parent.
Cousins, uncles, aunts, friends or in-laws can not petition anyone for a immigrant visa.
Andre Olivie, Esq.
I would concur with the previous answers. A mother in law cannot petition for the daughter in law. However, if she is a US citizen, then she could petition for your husband, and you would be a derivative beneficiary.
