Ni hao. Your husband would file for your son using the I-130. I understand how you wanted to have your child finish some of his education in China. Many of my K-1 clients feel the same way. Please be aware that there are age issues and timing issues that need to be examined for a successful application. I suggest you speak with an experienced immigration attorney. Best wishes!

I agree with my colleagues.

Yes, I agree that at this point, assuming the case meets certain requirements, you want your husband to petition for the children directly as his step-children. It sounds like your biological children were under 18 years old when you married your American citizen husband. If so, then I also recommend you contact an immigration attorney to explain why this is the best way to go, and assist you through it.
