Sponsored by a Stepparent | Example
Someone came to my office with a very interesting question. It was a young lady who’s 23 years old, and her mother had obtained a green card through marriage to her stepfather. The young lady was about 16 when the initial papers were filed, and her name was on the original paperwork. Now she’s 23, and she’s wondering if her stepfather can sponsor her.
You are able to be sponsored by a stepparent as long as your biological parent was married before you turned 18. If you are living abroad, you can file the I-130 Visa Petition and interview at the U.S. Embassy. If you were over the age of 21, this process can take a bit longer to complete.
