The USC child is the petitioner filing for the their immigrant parent.
Submitting Evidence- Developing the Paper Trial
If a child submits an I-130 immigrant visa petition, the best manner is to submit the birth certificate demonstrating the existance of the relationship between parent and child. Other evidence should include bona fides of the relationship such as pictures and evidence that there is a legitimate parent/child relationship.
The Benefits of the I-130 Petition
The benefits of a petition like this being approved is that the parent becomes an immediate relative and is not subject to the quota system. So long as the parent has had a legal entry and no other issues of inadmissibility, that person should be able to apply for adjustment of status.
