I became a U.S. citizen by marriage. My mother is happy to remain in my birth country, Kenya. After divorcing my father, she married another man, a widower, who brought with him a ten-year old child. The child, however, insists that his dream is to live in America, and keeps pestering me with letters asking me to bring him here. At first I thought that was impossible – we aren’t even related, and never lived in the same house – but having done a little reading, I’m now not so sure. Can I sponsor this child for a green card? And should I hold off for now, given that I am not read
I was born in the U.S., after which my father divorced my mother and returned to the Philippines. He remarried, and they had children, so I now have half-siblings. My father would love for them to have the possibility of U.S. citizenship as well, and has contacted me about this. Is it possible for me to sponsor my half-brothers and half-sisters for U.S. immigration even though we don’t share the same mother?
