Minute of Immigration with Attorney Luis Virguez
** This segment aired on Telemundo Atlanta on May 19, 2021 **
Rosbeth: Hello friends! Welcome to your Minute of Immigration with Attorney Luis Virguez, from Virguez Law. Attorney, we have a question from one of our viewers that says: “My children are US citizens, at what age can they petition for me?”
Luis: If you have children that are US citizens, they can petition for you when they are 21 years old. For Immigration, a child is considered an adult once they reach 21 years of age, and this could be daughters or sons. If your children are younger than 21, they are considered minors, and minors can’t petition for their parents. So to answer your question, your children need to be 21 years old in order to petition for you.
Rosbeth: Thanks for clarifying this issue attorney. If you want to know more, please visit the website shown on the screen.
