Did you know that a stepparent can immigrate their stepchildren?

U.S. immigration law allows residency for stepchildren in certain circumstances. There are some special rules that apply in these cases and there is an elementary and important requirement for a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident to marry a foreign national who has children, the government may allow these stepchildren to come to the U.S.

✅ The parents had to have married before the minor turned 18.

✅Even if the parents decide to divorce in the future, the stepparent is still a parent for immigration purposes and can continue to file, even if the parents have divorced.
